Weekly Prompt: Inexplicable Happiness

It’s raining on your Mom’s birthday and everything goes wrong! The cake gets soggy, Grandpa gets stuck in traffic, and all the guests have to huddle indoors. Your Mom’s soaking wet and has tears in her eyes, but when you go to check on her, you see she’s wearing a joyful smile. 

She looks at you and says…


For this week, we want you to tell us why someone would be happy on such a messed up day. What wisdom will your Mom impart?
