Carriers.....Not Barriers

Around 10 o'clock this morning, the high winds knocked out the electricity where we live. Within seconds we were awakened to the luxuries of pot for our morning kick, laptop to write my daily blog, microwave to warm cold coffee......

Goody gumdrops that a friend loaned me the book "The Hunger Games," by Suzanne Collins.  I compensated by pulling the lever on the recliner, pushing it back as far as it would go, and started reading the paperback that came highly recommended.

Sometimes we simply have to be willing and able to adjust our sails to the directions of the wind.  None of us knows where the next minute will take us, bring to us, or take away from us, so it's good logic we have something else at the ready.  Life has, not so gently, taught me to recognize these unexpected and so-called barriers to in reality be the carriers of the perfect cargo for the perfect day.

The electricity is back on, this blog is short, and I have a book to read.    Ta-ta.
