Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet.
— Roger Miller
Gifts are usually surprises. We don’t generally know what the ribbons, bows, and wrapping conceal.
Life’s greatest misfortunes are, in retrospect, often referred to as gifts. While a debt can feel like a curse, when we finally get to the bottom of what’s happened to us, we’re surprised to find something good – a gift or blessing of sorts. Through our misfortune, we may have developed some true and lasting relationships, learned we had some admirable qualities we didn’t know we had, or discovered the meaning of courage.
Today, if I am struggling. I will anticipate the wondrous surprise to come.
