The end of the day has come, I should be in bed, and I realize I have yet to write a post. Today was to be the last day with our younger daughter. We drove through pellets of ice and roads deep with slush to get her to the airport, only to find that her flight had been cancelled. A long drive later through the same conditions brought us safely back home.
Bad news. But there was good news as well. We were only about a mile into our way back when she texted the information. She has not appointments or “must do” things in the next two days, so the flight VERY early Wednesday morning will get her back without schedule problems. She didn’t have to spend the night at the airport, she didn’t have to get a hotel room, she could come home with her family, to through more boxes of her things still at our house, and I could make her another bowl of popcorn tonight.
So many events in our lives seem bad and some, of course, really are. But many have good that comes from them or aren’t as bad as they initially seem, as in our case today. Look for those good things and you can change your perspective and your day, as well as that of those around you.
