When "bad" things happen

I found this today while looking for something about the benefits, the redemptive aspects, of illness. I like this one:

Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.

-- Leigh Hunt (1784 - 1859) English author & editor

I can happily say that many flowers are springing from the difficulties of the past week or so!
