When Everything Seems To Go Wrong… (#189)

After a disappointing morning, three hours of train delays, and when everything seemed to be going wrong, I still had gratitude.

My brother and I had quite the day traveling but at the end of the day, we talked about what were the five best moments. We talked about the little things, we talked about what made us laugh, and because of that I’m grateful. The world still turns and despite what went wrong, I’m lucky I got to spend this time with my brother.
