Element of Surprise

After reading the reflections of others, I came to the realization that there really are very few things in my life that are what I consider to be inconveniences.  It is for this that I am truly grateful and blessed.  The small inconveniences mentioned by many are just a part of everyday life.  A true inconvenience is disturbing and frustrating but should also make us examine our lack of patience when we over-react to life's little everyday inconveniences - ie. taking out the trash, finding a parking spot further away than you planned on a cold and rainy day, long line-ups when their is only one cashier open, realizing that you forgot your lunch, keys, etc.  Things can always be worse!
