the added family time was a bonus for all of us. And, of course, there is nothing more comforting than cuddling with your beloved cat.
I can identify with my daughter's experienceI broke my leg many years ago while I was also a college student. It disrupted my studies and I had to move home for the semester. I was devastated at the time, but my 12 weeks in a cast taught me a few valuable lessons. In my previously published post, "What Goes Around Comes Around" I wrote that breaking my leg showed me how good deeds really do get passed on. From my fracture, I learned that although we don't believe it at the time, some bad experiences can have good outcomes.
The accident sent my future in a different direction than the one I had envisioned and planned, but everything turned out well in the end. I would not have experienced many of the wonderful things that have happened to me since, had I not fractured a bone while sledding on a cold and snowy January day. I now consider what seemed like the worst thing that ever happened to me at the time, as the pivotal point for everything good that has happened since.
Instead of referring to this past week as her "spring break," my daughter is calling it "spring broken." Despite her disappointment, her sense of humor has remained intact.

Have you ever had to change any major plans because of an injury?
