Lights Out

What do you do when the power goes out?

As a PartyLite Consultant, I could sell you some candles to dispel the darkness during a storm or other power outage so that you are not completely in the dark.

As a human being that has gone through a lot, I can offer you a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear, because I have been there.

We have had a recent power outage and we did use candles to dispel the darkness and we prepared our dinner on the grill and thoroughly enjoyed the time together just talking and relaxing.

Yes, we could have spent the money to get a hotel room for the night until the power was turned back on, but we decided to make the best of it and save our money for other things. It was like camping inside the house on purpose. 

We awoke this morning thankful for the sunshine coming through the windows and thankful for many other blessings too.

No matter what you are going through, there is a way to get through it without losing your cool, chewing someone out or complaining about it all night.

I see this as another way to exercise your choice to be positive and learn the lesson that is around you. There are always lessons to be learned if you choose to open your mind to them.

So, if you want to have a fun evening with lots of conversation with your children or partner, try unplugging from technology and enjoy the time together. You just might learn something about those you live with.
