It may be easy to say “When a door closes, a window opens,” especially when you are on the other side of the door. I have been on both sides of the proverbial door; I am sure we all have. There is one thing I always try to remember: Keep an open heart for what lies ahead. I have had some pretty miserable times (I’ll spare you the details), followed by glorious events (again, I’ll spare you). However, when I was stuck in the miserable part, it was difficult to imagine things would get better. But they did.
And, here’s a thought: If the door closes and all the windows seem to be closed, too, perhaps we can jimmy one open just enough to let the fresh air in and see what lies ahead.
