Do your plans always work out?

    A friend of mine moved.  The movers arrived with her stuff at her new home.  They brought in all of her furniture and put it where she asked them.  They set up her beds and placed the mattress and box springs just right.  Then they started bringing in boxes.  Being the organized person that she is, she asked them to put the boxes in the rooms they had come from in her previous home—you know, dining room stuff in the dining room.  Well, the movers looked kinda sheepish and said, “Lady, we don’t know what came from where.  We didn’t label the boxes.”

    Well, at first, she got angry, thinking about all the wasted time she’d spend walking from room to room.  But after the movers left, she said, it was kinda fun, almost like Christmas, opening up boxes not knowing what was in each one.

    Things don’t always go like we plan them, do they?  The next time something doesn’t go the way you wanted, remember my friend and just think “Christmas.”  You can have some fun even when things don’t go the way you plan by listening to life today and making a positive life, not just a living.
