Today, April 19th seems to be a bright and as sunny as the weather outside. My daughter's husband was released from the hospital late yesterday afternoon. He will need to rest and recuperate but the prognosis is good as long as he follows doctor's orders.
Life is funny isn't it? You can be sailing along thinking that everything is great and going smooth and just like that you hit a bump in the road. But, like the quote says, we can use it as fuel for the journey. No one ever promised each of us a life filled with no pain, no sorrow, no bumps along the way. We must embrace those bumps and learn from them. They are, after all, just bumps. Sure, you can fall down and skin your knee along the way but you must get up, brush yourself off, and move on. There is an up and a down to every bump. Embrace them both and enjoy the ride. Along the journey remember to tell those around you that you care about how much they mean to you...each and every day.
