Last week I took my oldest daughter for her final x-rays of her healed broken arm. While sitting in the waiting room we were seated next to an older woman -- a 'senior'. We enjoyed visiting with her and learning of her knee replacements and hip surgeries.
It was hot in the waiting room. I made that comment as I reached for something to fan myself with. Though I haven't reached the stage of hot flashes --- this older woman, with a twinkle in her eye -- passed along a comment that a friend had given to her; 'those aren't hot flashes --- they are private trips to the tropics'. :)
I was grateful for a laugh and a new way of looking at something deemed to be unpleasant. It gave me an opportunity to look at other challenges as blessings. Thought I'd pass along the humor :)
