Life is full of twists, turns and surprises. We can either handle those unexpected surprises with gladness or with tears and sadness. When one young girl gets a surprise while playing peek-a-boo with her dad, she doesn't know what to do and the game leaves her upset and scared.
Some surprises in our life are larger than others — the death of a loved one, job loss, diagnosis of a terrible disease. When these challenges come, which they always will, we must decide how we will handle the trial. Will we cry or will we square our shoulders and press forward? When we have a good attitude, we are able to overcome life's surprises with a cheerful heart and a smile on our face.
