A young lady sent to pickup mom’s hospital bag announced my little brother’s birth. It was five days to Christmas and J felt like an early present to our family.
He was a happy, healthy baby and mom raved about him being a great baby who never got sick. When J was about 22months old he got sick for the first time. Grandma seemed happy that he was sick and I was confused. I gathered courage one afternoon and asked grandma, why she was happy about J being sick, her response was…
“Now, we know he is a healthy boy, we know his immune system works.”
I remembered this moment yesterday while reading results from a career personality test I took. Which states –
Pearlsa sees a cloud in every silver lining”.
I thought the cliché is “Every cloud has a silver lining”
It left me wondering if I look for the cloud in every silver lining, just as grandma looked for illness in healthy baby J.
