Life is full of wonderful blessings. Sometimes they're quite easy to see, but other times you have to look a little deeper. I have a few different posts on this blog already referring to how I like to focus on the good side of things rather than letting negativity take over. I was fortunate to be given another beautiful example of this yesterday afternoon.
I was typing away on the computer at work late yesterday afternoon when I received a phone call from my wife. I found it odd that she was calling me, rather than sending a quick text, to ask me to grab some milk and bananas on the way home from work. Hearing the words, "I just had a blowout and I'm stuck on the side of the road," brought me a big relief....I didn't have to remember to get milk and bananas....because I often forget. That was blessing number one.
Well, it turns out it was actually the ball joint that blew out which pretty much drops any support on that corner of the vehicle. If you look at the photo below, you'll see the newly unrestrained metal arms did a nice job of gouging out the tire and alloy wheel. (It did a number on the pavement for about thirty feet too, but I didn't want photographic evidence of that....just in case.)
OK. I've rambled on long enough for one evening. This was a pretty easy situation to identify the good aspects. Although they're not all this obvious, they are all around you. Keep that in mind when things just don't seem to be going right in your day. It could always be worse. Until next time....
