So this weekend was our last planned trip to hockey for the season. Early in the year we bought a 3 game mini-plan. We wound up buying tickets for one other game as well as getting free tickets to two other games. You never know what’s going to happen when you go to a game, but I always hope for the win. Saturday was a disappointment my Kings lost 3-0. It’s a bit funny because 3 of four of the games we paid for were losses and the free games we went to both resulted in wins. So why do I bring this up on a Recovery blog? Am I trying to recover from the losses? Well, yes, but still it made me think about the unexpected joy in life.
So often I go into a situation with a preconceived notion of the outcome. A good friend told me that expectations are premeditated disappointments. Oh how true that can be. Both of the free hockey games came at us quite unexpectedly. They were just a blessing from God (hockey IS God’s game!)
As I write this at Starbucks I was just brought a free cup of coffee. Blessings abound. I need to keep them in front of my eyes. They will help me to…
