“Wisdom often lurks beneath a tattered coat.” ~ Caecilius Statius
The kind of day where I just wanted to stay in bed.
But it was a work day so I got my coffee, showered and dressed in layers – lots of layers!
I reluctantly went outside to start my car.
It took a couple of tries.
I was shivering and chilled to the bone.
I cursed the morning and muttered something about hating winter.
A few moments later I headed to work.
Once parked, I got out and began to walk the one block to my office.
I planned to walk fast, so as to spend the least amount of time outdoors.
But my path was blocked by a homeless man coming toward me.
He was struggling to push his shopping cart through the snow.
“Move!” I silently screamed.
As if in response, the man threw his hands into the air, turned his face up to the sky and said, “Isn’t it glorious?”
“Isn’t what glorious?” I snapped with irritation.
“The sun,” he replied.
It’s all about attitude
Have you ever been freed of petty grumblings by an unlikely messenger?
Isn’t it glorious?
