This morning, we heard some good news about someone who, for various reasons, we've fallen out of touch with in the past several months.
Details don't really matter just now.
What matters is that there was good news. That's really all that matters. So I shared the good news with my kids, and they were happy about it too.
I'm relieved to note that none of the kids brought up our broken relationship with this person when we discussed the good news. I'm happy that they can rejoice in the good news and the blessing that it represents.
Whether our other differences will ever be resolved is another issue, but it's good to know that good news is more important than bad blood.
