Did everyone enjoy this holiday weekend? Things are getting so dicey in The A with the weather. I mean it’s April and yesterday was downright cool. I started that mini Spring cleaning I mentioned to you all on Friday and gifted my sister with a ton of clothes, some still with tags. She was thrilled and I have much-needed room in my closets. Then I headed to my folks for Easter dinner. I love seeing my nieces all decked out in their Easter dresses – a really fun day with the family. But speaking of family, today’s post is about a humorous situation but of course, there’s a lesson tucked in there too.
OK so I’ve had this lil blog for 3 years this September and one of the first things I purchased was a tripod for all my pictures.
Um yeah, the tripod is sitting on canned goods as noted by my twin brother, here’s how the conversation went:
Twin Brother: Why you got the tripod on cans?
Blogger Sister: So it will be tall enough for my pictures
Twin Brother: Why don’t you just extend the legs?
Blogger Sister: Uh? What?
Who knew? I extended the legs and now have a 72 inch tall tripod. Unbelievable that I’ve had this tripod for almost 3 years and assumed the legs would not extend, but things are not what they seem. That’s true in life too. Sometimes we look at a situation and we just take it at face value, or it may not be exactly what we need, so we improvise. We just accept the way things are without a second thought. But if we look deeper or more closely, we can see that we don’t have to compromise or go to plan B – canned goods. Had I looked at the dang thang, I would have seen that the legs extended. Sometimes we just have to look closer.
Have you ever seen things one way and realized you weren’t seeing clearly?
