Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. The word has been voted one of the ten English words hardest to translate into other languages. I like it because of its interestng origin (too long to describe here). Try to look it up in the internet. ;)
