My cell phone died an unexpected death. Yesterday. I won’t give you the gory details, but let’s just say it’s lying on a highway somewhere along Route 315.
And it really upset me. I mean it really ruined my day.
I was grumpy. I was irritable. I felt lost and disconnected.
All because of a stupid phone that can be replaced!
But that was yesterday.
Today, I’m headed out of town for a funeral. Three young boys don’t have a mother anymore. It’s unexpected. It’s tragic. It’s unexplainable.
A mother can’t be replaced.
So I’ve had a bit of a paradigm shift. You see, I have much to be thankful for – including three beautiful children I can hold tonight – and I really don’t care anymore about my cell phone. And I’m pretty embarrassed that I let it ruin my day. (Yeah, I even had to apologize to my kids this morning.)
What silly things have you let ruin your day lately?
