I stumbled upon a quote by Shauna Niequist that seems particularly apt for where I'm at

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

At this very moment, it's very, very sweet. I'm celebrating, revelling in all the unexpected blessings. It's absolutely true what they say - when one door closes, another opens - you just have to open those eyes and see that the door (and world) is wide, wide open with opportunities, possibilities, and better days to come :)

Have a happy weekend my friends.
