I’m not a big “why me?” sorta guy: enough good things happen to me that the “challenges” all seem to be footnotes on a charmed life. Well, karma has come a’callin’ and while I’m not sitting in the corner with my chin in my hands, I am asking myself if the winds of change have taken a turn intended for someone else.
The latest woe was car troubles that left us stranded on the Interstate late last night. Wait, that was the second to last trouble … the last would have to have been the $400+ towing bill. Oy.
But, with an attitude that begs to see the bright side, I will echo Suzy’s comments and admit that it wasn’t raining, the temperatures were above where they had been, our tow truck driver (Harold) made the trip comfortable (if not a little pleasant), and aside from inconvenience (and a heckuva bill), we’re warm, safe, and fed.
But, I am looking forward to the coming week: I have 3 days of work before getting the rest of the year off, Suzy and I have the best of our holiday traditions to look forward to, and I have a house full of fun projects and entertaining diversions. So, in the grand scheme of things when I start to consider “why me”, I can only conclude that it’s because I’m lucky.
