Since the house is on fire let us warm ourselves. ~Italian Proverb
Apt words considering this past week's madness.
In speaking with my mom since the fire we have made jokes, making light of the fact that she has a plate and a cork left of her possessions and home.
I am learning to squeeze and make lemonade. There is ALWAYS lemonade to me made, no matter what the circumstances. That's my drive for this year.
So, simply put, keep the perspective you deserve in your life: you deserve to receive goodness and if it doesn't come in the way you expected, make sure you have a pitcher handy.
Or to follow the words today: stop shivering in the cold and hold your palms to the flames. Warm yourself...the fire's burning anyway.
