My week went all wrong.
Monday morning dawned with the extermination team knocking on my door giving me five whole minutes to grab our stuff and leave again. This time I had to be gone for 6 hours at least.
Well, I grabbed everything I needed for Charlotte and me to spend the day at Scott’s work.
I could work there. It would be an adventure. But not how I expected.
I grabbed the wrong cord for my computer. It’s old and won’t hold a charge.
I forgot a lunch or snacks for either of us.
Charlotte nose dived off a chair and bit her chin and lip. It bled a lot and she was mostly hysterical for the rest of the day.
I was exhausted. Behind on work. And the day felt way too long.
The week finished out with more interruptions, and disappearing Internet.
And the toilet flooded the bathroom. It took every towel in the house to dry it up.
But ultimately that week gone wrong was still filled with good things.
1.Time at the park with Papa for Charlotte.
2. A coworker of Scott who ” just happened” to have the same computer type as me and loaned me her cord.
3. Charlotte’s fall did no permanent damage.
4. Gorgeous fall leaves that I had time to enjoy.
5. And the bathroom floor needed to be mopped anyway.
Sometimes gratitude is all about your perspective.
Which side of today are you going to try to see?
