When life gives you a flat tire, make a tire swing
My daughter came inside and told me the car was leaning to one side. We went outside to look and both tires on the passenger side were completely flat.
I understand getting one flat tire. Perhaps I drove over a nail.
How did I get two flat tires?
When life gives you lemons you are supposed to make lemonade. You know, the old power of positive thinking, find something good in a bad situation.
What am I suppose to make with a flat tire? I can’t make lemonade from rubber.
When live gives you a flat tire, make a tire swing.
Pamela Hodges – The owner of two flat tires
I don’t know how the tires were damaged. The tires brought me and my daughter home safely through the rain on Sunday from Virginia, and the tires took me safely to the hardware store to buy paint primer. Somewhere between the hardware store and home I must have driven over glass.
I am grateful the tires did not blow when I was driving 65 mph hours and miles from home, and I am grateful they didn’t blow when I was on the way home from the hardware store.
The flat tires gave me an opportunity to thank God for my safety and gave me a chance to not get angry.
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,
for anger resides in the lap of fools.
Today I will call and get the car towed to a car repair place I trust. Today I will continue to not be foolish and easily angered. Today I will look for a tree to make a tire swing.
What do you do when life gives you lemons, or a flat tire?
Please let me know in the comments, I would love to chat.
