Silver Lining

Silver lining.  Whatever comes our way, there's silver lining.  My family has missed several of our favorite annual traditions in the last two weeks due to persistent stomach flu.  This has provided many bright spots.  On the night of Christmas Eve, we awoke to a flu incident and opened Santa's gifts while doing laundry.  While home isolated from others, we have worked on many projects.  I'm organizing cupboards, closets, and drawers.  My children are playing with favorite toys in new ways and then practicing putting them away afterwards.  They are completing workbooks and craft kits that have been waiting for months.  Our kittens have us around to play with and cuddle.  Where is the silver lining?  Expect to find it and you will.
