I wish when it rained I could make flowers and birds come out of my hand

The other day just wasn't my day. It was one of those days that everything feels like it's going wrong when in fact nothing is really wrong. To add to my dismay, it was raining and miserable. I was venting to my wise small group leader and she said, " you know what. Today is a good day for ducks.
"Fine, I wish I was a duck."
"No, no you can't wish to be duck. You just have to know that today is a good day for ducks."

That simple statement was exactly what I needed to hear at that time. I've noticed lately that I often let events determine my mood. That statement helped me keep perspective and know that somewhere someone was enjoying the rain and I just needed to accept that and move on.

The speaker the next day in chapel said something that really helped me with this issue. He said that we need to be able to pray that whatever happens, it's okay. We always pray for safe travel but what if we prayed that even if we get into an accident, it will be okay. What if we surrendered every part of our lives. We always hear that from speakers but I just liked how that guy put it so practically.

Espero que te encanta el fin de semana. Pienso que encantarĂ¡.
