Have you ever noticed how things seem to come together just in time...for big events, small events, life in general? She got to the hospital...just in time to have the baby. He got his driver's license...just in time to take his father to the airport. I got this post finished...just in time for today's letter of the alphabet in the Z to A in May Blogging Challenge.
Okay, so I didn't get quite a few posts done at all, let alone "just in time." Some of the plans for the family reunion didn't come off as planned--there was no "just in time" there. I arrived at the post office just as the delivery truck was pulling away when I needed to mail my taxes before the deadline. Ouch, no "just in time" there, either.
One thing I've learned as I've grown older is to roll with the punches. Missed opportunities for one thing may offer alternate ones. Many details in life that used to leave me stewing are now recognized as mere details. I believe I have arrived at living the adage, "Don't sweat the small stuff." I am saying that wisdom and maturity helped me to arrive at this point. It might really be that I have less energy than in earlier years. The truth is, it doesn't matter so much how I arrived at this point, it's simply that I got here...just in time.
