You’ve heard that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I prefer limeaid, but hey, I’m not gonna turn down free lemons! I forgot lunch. Made it and left it at home, all neatly packed. It was good too, chicken and rice. YUM! Freshly grilled chicken with a omnomnom spicy soy sauce and scrumptious yellow saffron rice.
No lunch = lunch out = spending money I would rather not. bummer.
Lightbulb! Go have lunch with a friend! Woohoo!
Left wallet in my photo bag, also neatly tucked away at home. Poo.
Friend treats for lunch! Woohoo!
Now, I could see the enemy of my soul trying to get me discouraged, upset and freaked out. Mad at myself for forgetting such big things. But no. I took a moment to be thankful, and look around for a silver lining, as-it-were.
Now, I have an unexpected triple blessing!
#1, lunch with friend!! #2, free lunch today! #3, another day to take Cara to lunch to pay her back!
Thanking God for wonderful, generous friends and lemons that turn in to opportunities to spend more time with them! 😀
