Challenges...and luck...

Lately, I've had ALOT going on...my head spins at night, and it's hard to sleep.  But TODAY I had 2 very different and yet odd challenges and luck!

First, I had my David Yurman ring on today...I don't wear it every day...and while I was driving home, I realized it wasn't on my finger...I'm freaking out..."did I wear it today"..."did I take it off..."  I KNEW I had it on, I just knew it...I'm driving on a major hwy trying not to focus on my ring whereabouts, yet, I couldn't help it...sure enough, I pulled over, looked in my purse, and low and behold there she was...she had fallen off my finger at some point!  OMG THANK YOU that it fell off in my purse and not in the parking garage or bathroom!!!  So, one lucky girl!!!

Then, when I got home...I was told by my brother (who has been living with us since May '09) that he was smoking a cig on our WOOD deck and it caught FIRE...(pics later, I don't have my camera)...It upset me ALOT...here we have been so generous to him, we opened up our house to him, rent free, and this is what we get in return--who smokes on a wood deck??  We just don't have the money to FIX this.  But, as I calmed down, I thought to myself how LUCKY I was that the fire had not reached the grill/propane which was inches away from the flame...thankful that the fire didn't ignite the entire deck...thankful the fire didn't ignite the HOUSE...thankful nobody was hurt...and VERY thankful it didn't happen at night while we would all be asleep (the deck lays flush against the kids' bedrooms.)

So, even tho there is significant damage, I'm very LUCKY as it could have been alot worse!!!! 

These are 'some' of my challenges today...and I'm really working on not dwelling on the negative, and finding the postive out of it all!!!
