Blessings in Disguise

In Way of The Peaceful Warrior, (one of my favorite books!) Dan Milman shares a story about an old man and his son. The story goes something like this:

An old man and his son worked a small farm, with only one horse to pull the plow. One day, the horse ran away.
"How terrible," sympathized the neighbors. "What bad luck."
"Who knows whether it is bad luck or good luck," the farmer replied.
A week later, the horse returned from the mountains, leading five wild mares into the barn.
"What wonderful luck!" said the neighbors.
"Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?” answered the old man.
The next day, the son, trying to tame one of the horses, fell and broke his leg.
"How terrible. What bad luck!"
"Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?"
The army came to all the farms to take the young men for war, but the farmer's son was of no use to them, so he was spared.
"Good luck? Bad luck?"

I wanted to share this story with you because your *mission of the week* was to keep a log of your blessings and strive to live a life abundant in gratitude. When things happen in our lives that seem unfortunate, it may be for our Highest good and a blessing could unfold from the very thing that gave us grief. We are loved and safe in Divine arms. So try to view everything in life as a lesson and a blessing: even the hardships.
