I am sure we have all had those moments in life when things are going smoothly, and then all of the sudden you get news, and it changes everything. It can be big news (wedding proposal, pregnancy, death, job change, etc.) or it can be small news (a child wakes up earlier than expected, someone is running late, you have run out of coffee in the house, etc.). It really doesn’t matter what the news is, all of the sudden all of your plans change.
