It’s 11:26 on a Tuesday night.
And, I am speechless.
I went without internet access at home for the entire day. The internet was down. By my reaction, one would have thought I was stranded in the Saraha desert without water, or worse, without a cell phone.
So I resorted to Plan B.
In extreme cases of internet famine, Plan B is Panera.
Free WIFI. Lots of tables and outdoor seating — did I mention the free WIFI?
I thought a lot about “Plan B’s” today.
They are really never ideal are they?
But sometimes Plan B’s end up being better than expected.
Tonight, I spent the night over dinner with a dear friend who was celebrating her first wedding anniversary —- unfortunately, she was spending it with me, instead of her husband who passed on before this day could be toasted and honored.
She is a beautiful spirit, full of light and love.
And, I know she never expected to spend her first wedding anniversary with me.
But, there we were, toasting her husband, sharing a moment, shedding some tears — and it was absolutely beautiful in its own wondrous Plan B sort of way.
I suppose that’s the power of a Plan B.
Usually more meaningful than you can imagine.
Never as good as the real thing.
But, never to be forgotten either.
Happy Anniversary my dear friend.
I know your Plan A is looking down on you with love.
