When Things Don’t Go Right…
Have you had one of those days, or weeks or even years when things don’t go right? What is “right” anyway?
You may make plans or have an idea in your mind of how things in your life are going to be a certain way, you know life has a way of throwing you a curve. You can ask yourself why, but I find it is better to ask myself what. What can I do in this situation to make the best of it, to embrace it and find those pearls of good.
So…even though I would like to be home and curl up in my own bed each night, I am up in Maryland. The wonderful thing about blogging is that I can write most anywhere.
The bad thing about blogging? You need your computer. You need the internet. I have had spotty internet on my computer for the last several days. Multiple trips to the Apple store and hours on the phone with Apple has only helped slightly. My daughter is moving to a new home on Friday. I hope the new ISP and new modem/router will do the trick. If not, I guess I will be back to the Apple store. Until then, this is all you get from Celebrate and Decorate.
Try to look for the blessings in any situation. I am getting to spend more time and make wonderful memories with these three. My daughter joined the Army last year and that commitment means family has to support that soldier and her family in any way we can. Who wouldn’t want to spend time with these sillies anyway?
Last night we carved pumpkins, something I haven’t done in years and years. How the girls’ eyes sparkled as they saw their glowing jack o’ lanterns come to life!
Being in Maryland instead of Florida this time of year means getting to really experience the beautiful fall leaves. I have missed that since moving to Florida. What do you enjoy the most about this time of year?
Perhaps I am not home with this display, but those sweet hand carved jack o’lanterns are so very special this year. Have you experienced a time in your life when you were thrown a curve? How did you handle it? I am trying to make the best of an unexpected situation and wake up each day with gratitude in my heart and mind. So, when things don’t go right for you, I hope you can find the good about your situation and focus on that!
Remember to be kind and understanding. You never know what someone else is going through! You can do this!
