Many of us, myself included, have a tendency to be surprised when something is disrupted. Weather, illness, accidents, life in general. So much really isn’t under our control. Over the years, I’ve become more accepting of this, and recognized that adjusting my response is where I do have options, and that a sense of humor is very helpful. I’ve listed a few quotes or statements that speak to this. If I found the source, I’ve listed it, if it has many sources, then I’ve left it open. Enjoy!

Things are seldom what they seem, skim milk masquerades as cream. — Gilbert and Sullivan, HMS Pinafore
Expect the unexpected.
Surprise, surprise, surprise! — Gomer Pyle
