It’s a much happier day
When we have a two-hour delay!
I’ve been lucky this week to have 2- two-hour delays because of weather. This week it has worked especially well because it extended my fabulous weekend. Monday night is always a late night for me so this morning to get a little bit of extra sleep was wonderful. At this point in my life, I look at the two-hour delay as a gift of time. It is time for me to enjoy my coffee and for me to shower when the sun is actually streaming through the windows instead of the darkness.
The two hours allows the commuters and plows to rid the road of ice and snow. There is also the benefit of the sunlight. The difficulty this morning was drivers not reading the signs…
Five years ago I would have panicked and would have tried to get to school as quickly as possible no matter the safety issues. Luckily I never had an accident or some sort of problem.
Gifts of time are hard to come by and I’ve learned to appreciate them instead of trying to move quickly to the next thing!
