Maybe your packing and about to embark on a road trip this Christmas, maybe it’s an adventure of every bed, blow up mattress, and couch in your home occupied by house guests.
You could look at this week as something to survive through or something to thrive through.
Had one of those experiences yesterday...the grandparents are in town and we took the kids to a train museum and all over the place there were kids wearing their pajamas like it was normal in the middle of the day out in public.
Come to find out, it was the last day that The real Polar Express from the book and movie was there taking kids on rides…but it was sold out…it was if you told the kids there would be no Christmas Found. We could have walked away saying, “oh what a bummer”…if only we had known. And complained about it later
Instead walked up to a conductor and asked him if by chance there were any “no-shows” or extra tickets.” We got on the train…we had cookies and hot chocolate…and made Grandma cry. It was a surprise adventure that we will be talking about for years…Remember the year that we got to go on the Polar Express?
When things don’t go the way you plan, you can either loose your cool, or laugh.
Each day is an opportunity to build your story. It can either be a story full of complaints or a story full of triumph and adventure.
