How's Your Friday the 13th Going??

Ours?? Not so good.

First off, Kelly and Markus are stranded at the Edmonton airport. Apparently due to fog in the area their flight is delayed meaning they will miss their connection in Vancouver for their flight up here. As long as they get to the Vancouver airport sometime today though (which they should), they will be able to make a 10:30 pm flight for Whitehorse and arrive around 12:30 am. Inconvenient, but workable.

And, the dog truck decided it wanted to go on strike this morning and will not start. We have two chargers on it and we have been on the phone frantically looking for someone home in the neighbourhood to give us a boost. Unfortunately, the local towing company can't get anyone out for a couple of hours and everyone in the near vicinity is at work.

We have now missed our vet check appointments. We contacted the Quest office a few hours ago and they have offered to reschedule our vet appointments, but we need to get in town before the Driver's Meeting at 3pm.

I'm sure it is all going to work out - we are just going to figure out a way to make it work, but while we are waiting on phone calls and chargers I wanted to share with you a favorite quote of my friend Colleen. She sent it to me this morning in regards to another matter, I'm sure not realizing how appropriate it would become later today!

"For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one." Souza

Well timed, my friend. Thanks!

I like this quote: Happiness IS the way. Take everything that comes your way and make the best of it. Make the most of your opportunities. Live in the moment.
