On Resiliency

We’ve finally managed to overcome the bumps of transitioning to a new school.  At least the major ones.  The bumps that required late night Mom and Dad discussions, much deep breathing and way too much angst.  And surprisingly, once we came up with an alternative plan, things took a turn upward quickly.  Reminding us once again how resilient children can be, even in situations that seem difficult beyond reason.  Perhaps it is their age, perhaps it is their personalities, perhaps it is just sheer luck.  Or a combination of all the above.  Whatever it is that turns bad days into good ones overnight is something I wish I could bottle and sell.
