Recently I was listening to my wake-up call — KFUN — in the early morning, and Martha Johnsen was talking about some mishaps that had beset her.
Innocuous, everyday things they were — a fly in her coffee cup, a lost earring, a flat tire. Yet, her positive outlook offset these mischances. Her stories about the drawbacks are always followed by explanations of how the problems could have been worse. She ended her Jeremiad with “Life is good.”
I’ll have to agree wholeheartedly with her.
