The first day of Spring is always a good day for me, if for no other reason than the days are getting longer and seemingly brighter and the air is getting warmer. Like many first days, this one didn't start out too well. I woke at 5a.m. to be a guest blogger and because of a glitch that fell through. My daughter then handed me a scholarship essay she completed last night, when she found it by chance. It was actually due last week on the 15th but the school was still accepting requests on a non-priority basis. After much hair pulling and some angst we got the forms completed, essay checked and she's on her way to deliver it as I type. Then my husband called and informed me that his biggest project in years is now "on hold" until a new piece of land can be found since the wetland issue is worse than first assumed. (Please send good thoughts out to the Universe that 40 acres of suitable industrial land can be found soon and my husband's project is "back on")
That's the bad news.
The good news is I'm writing anyway. My daughter is still on her quest for a full-boat scholarship. My husband is contacting commercial realtors and sending out inquiries, and I decided to do my own blog and actually attempt to promote it. So I guess the first day of Spring, as always, is turning out to be a pretty good day. What is your hope for this Spring and how do you turn obstacles into opportunities for something even better? I'd love to hear your stories.
