Humor (Sort of) Friday

I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.

— Groucho Marx (Public Domain)

Spring is typically one of my favorite times of the year. After February, the shortest month that often seems like the longest, a general sense of renewal begins to take hold in those wonderful months of March through May. I read this quote from Groucho Marx, and my first thought was to replace the word “evening” with “springtime.” After all, this has been anything but a typical spring.

We never know what’s in store for us, or how our lives might be disrupted by outside forces, so we must play the hand we are dealt at any given time. Robert Louis Stevenson said, “Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.” To that end, we may not be able to control the circumstances surrounding us, but we sure as heck can control how we perceive them. We might as well fully embrace where we are at this moment in time and make the most of it!
