Flexibility, or, Have Laptop, Will Write!

Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens. –Epictetus

I had a great plan for the day, specifically the morning.  And then… woke up to no electricity.  There goes my big plans…

I was driving in the car, complaining about this situation to a friend, and he pooh pooh-ed my complaints, dismissively saying, “Everything will be alright.”  To which I (sarcastically) replied, “Oh, thank you, now I feel so much better!”  He said, “I am only using the advice you have given in all of your posts.”  My response, “Well, if I had electricity to access my blog, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation!”

The good news:  the power came back on right before I had to leave to get my car serviced.  The even better news:  The dealership has wi-fi, so now I can write while I wait.  The best news:  my friend is absolutely correct, and all is well, with or without electricity.

Today’s Miracle:

Having a friend call just when I needed it, and having a conversation to turn my frown upside down!

Also, having the time to enjoy fellow bloggers (which I will be doing as soon as I hit publish).
