Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it is about learning to dance in the rain.

Good News - Bad News

Good News: I had a wonderful time with my granddaughters this afternoon. We went to eat at a fast food place before I took them home.

Bad News: I couldn't find my car keys when we were ready to leave.

Good News: I dumped my purse and found my phone.

Bad News: The car keys were still not found.

Good News: My car was parked in front of a window, so the girls could stay inside while I checked the car.

Bad News: They were not in the car.

Good News: Mikaela said she was positive that I had the keys in the restaurant. They were on the tray of food, she said. (This is the 6 year old. Neither the 8 year old nor I could remember anything)

Bad News: The only place left to look was in the garbage.

Good News: A wonderful young man who was just getting off work went to get a glove and searched the garbage.

Better news: He found them

Thank God, I've never thrown one of the babies (children or grandchildren) in the garbage. But the 8 year old reminded me that this is the SECOND time I've done this--thrown the keys in the garbage at a fast food place--both times she was with me!!!

I've done that too!! And, since I worked at McDonald's in high school, I've also been the seeker with the glove to help the poor customer who threw keys away. I also threw my retainer in the garabage by accident after lunch in high school. That was even more embarrassing.

LOL, never done that, but have heard of others in the same predicament. I'm sure your grands will be telling that story for years to come.
