A Difference in Perspective

Happy Tuesday! I just wanted to take a moment to share a story with you all.

Tuesday mornings are pretty hectic for me. I have to get my little ones up and ready so I can drop my oldest off to school. Then we rush home to pack up the car and head to gymnastics for my 3 year old. We usually carpool with my sister and her daughter who also go to gymnastics.

This morning there was a snow day because of the coming snowstorm. That is quite alright with me. Unfortunately I hadn’t heard any news of gymnastics being cancelled so I continued with my routine of getting the little ones ready to head out for our weekly 45 minute drive.

My sister was right on time picking us up which is good since I have stitches in my hand, driving is a challenge for me. We got the children packed up into the car and headed out into the road. It started to snow but not bad so we figured we were in the clear.

Upon arriving to the building for gymnastics we were displeased to find that classes had been cancelled and no notice had been given ahead of time. I didn’t find it too big a deal and hopped back in the car to head back home. My sister on the other hand was livid. The 45 minute drive back was full of venting and threats of sending a nasty email to the owner.

Some may say I was being too nice as I was talking my sister out of sending this email. After all, it was our fault for not calling ahead of time to double check. This situation just made me realize that while I try to not get too heated about little things out of my control, there are people who are quick to anger and find even the little things to be the most inconvenient. I love my sister and would never speak ill of her, but her reaction surprised me and left me thinking about how situations make us act.

In response to the snowstorm, many people are upset about the snow and cold weather. While I would love for it to be sunny and beautiful all year round, I live in upstate New York and February is supposed to be snowy and cold. I am by no means saying individuals cannot complain. I simply think we should as a whole step back sometimes and see things from a different perspective.

I hope everyone has a happy and blessed Tuesday.
