Silver Lining

Even if it isn’t easy sometimes. Even if the cards on the table are crap. I still like to see the bright side.

I took my car in for a simple oil change this weekend, and walked out with my bank account down by nearly $1K because the motor mounts needed replacing, my front brakes needed work, and some belt wasn’t tense enough (maybe it just had a glass of wine?)…on top of that, an old email account was hacked and decided to spam a bunch of people, and I wasn’t feeling that great. Crappy cards indeed.

If not for this hand though, the Man and I would not have taken a long walk over the course of a few hours (nearly 4 miles), we would not have had Pumpkin Spice Lattes and breakfast at Starbucks, we would not have wandered aimlessly around Barnes & Noble, we might not have seen a movie on the spur of the moment (Gone Girl – twisted, but very good, just like the book…), and we would not have spent so much time outside enjoying the finally beautiful, Southern California Fall weather.

But we did all of that with the hand that we were dealt.  So yes, I definitely do like to see the bright side of things.
