Ever had your day start off pretty good and then something happens that turns your world upside down?
. . . Like delays, missed opportunities and major nuisances that can suddenly make your blood boil way past simmer? Some of these problems happen to us all and just seem to pop up out of nowhere and we always think that this is the end of the world, but of course it is not. At times, when things happen it comes at the worst possible time.
Take a minute and appreciate that the problem could have been much worse. This may help you to accept and deal with the problem instead of sitting and simmering.
Trust that everything happens for a reason and that blessings can come in disguises. Most of the time, the problem you experienced taught you something and this probably made you stronger. Nothing wrong with that.
If you do happen to find a particular problem gifted you with a blessing, share with your friends. The more we openly recognize how we are so very fortunate, the happier and more content we will be.

Mary Ann grew up in Brownwood, a small central Texas town. Her early love of the violin, which developed at the age of ten, and subsequent mastery of the instrument opened many opportunities for her. She was mentored and prepared for her musical journey from the director of the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra. She auditioned and was selected to join the Blue Jeans Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra was underwritten by Levi Straus Blue Jean Manufacturer and the City of Estes Park, Colorado. Two musical students from each state were selected and concerts were given each Sunday afternoon in a natural amphitheater in the Rocky Mountains. Mary Ann remains an alumnus of this group which is an active symphony now making their home in Breckenridge, Colorado. Mary Ann also played in the Las Vegas, Wichita Falls and Austin Symphony Orchestras.
She had a busy career beginning at the Governor’s Office in Colorado. Then fourteen years at a Texas Trade Association. She was Manager of a Computer Magazine Publishing Company. The last few years of working were spent in sales, which led to her home office, as her husband’s health declined.
Since her husband’s death, Mary Ann has written several books, including a Book of Poetry, Children’s Short Stories, Reflections, The Pioneers and her just published book, Journey of My Heart, A Memoir.
During the last quarter of 2012 Mary Ann was engaged with speaking engagements and book signings in several states, as well as radio interviews from New York City, Dallas, Denver, Portland and Seattle, Washington.
