Isn't life interesting?

There's nothing black and white about life, is there? The whole experience seems to run on a system of checks and balances, with happiness/satisfaction largely dependent upon having a good sense of perspective.

Case in point, yesterday.

Not-so-good things:  lost suitcase, chipped granite on kitchen countertop, Todd's books cost almost as much as his tuition.

Good things:  suitcase found, granite guy coming Saturday and thinks he can fix countertop, Todd qualifies for in-state tuition.

Pretty much of a draw, right? But here's where that all-important sense of perspective comes into play...

Sense of perspective:  Jeremiah, Carli, Bryce



Kinda tips the scales, doesn't it? So have a good day, guys! I certainly will.  =)
