Imagine two people are sitting at opposite sides of the same table. Between them sits a beautiful bouquet – in a simple glass vase. The assortment of flowers and greenery is simply amazing.
Each person is asked to write a description of the flowers. Later the descriptions are compared. They appear to be very different – near opposites.
My plane pushed back from the gate at 6pm this past Thursday night – 4 1/2 hours of sitting on the tarmac it returned to the same gate at 10:30pm.
Nearly 24 hours later I finally made it home.
I then remembered it was Memorial Day Weekend and how quickly I forgot the lesson I learned just a couple of years ago. This post, from three years ago, will hopefully help all of us to keep things in perspective.
