Unexpected Gifts


There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.
Richard Bach

Perspective is everything in life. Most people tend to have glass half empty or a glass half full mentality. I've been blessed with a glass half full mentality, and I have been trying to push it to a glass full and brimming with life outlook. I've been looking to find that gratitude for every thing that comes my way, because I've found that eventually even in problems there are unexpected gifts. Don't get me wrong, when the problems occur I go through the negative emotions etc. that most of us feel. Down the road though I can look back and see what I've learned and gained.

Yesterday I was given two gifts. Despite the drought, backyard trees here in Cali are brimming with fruit. I was brought a basket of dripping with sweetness apricots. Last night while looking at some rock and roll history for inspiration for an embroidery project I discovered Sister Rosetta Tharpe, 'The godmother of rock and roll'. How I had never heard of her I cannot say, but what a gift to make her acquaintance.

Wonder what gifts I'll find today?
