This morning I woke up at 5:30AM and I know that is early for most people.
Seemingly Mr. Frankish was an early bird as well and used to make his way to
his office at 5:30AM. One morning he found the office safe open with the contents scattered all over the office floor. However, he was able to see
the silver lining in the attempted burglary. He wrote in a letter,
“….They had drilled through the
outer door of the safe right opposite the lock and knocked it out of place
which left the bolts free, then drilled the inner door and put in the charge of
dynamite with a fuse, closed the outer doors to deaden the explosion and blew
the—— lock all to fragments. Fortunately there was not a cent in the vault so
their labor was for nothing and they had evidently been pretty decent fellows
for their kind…”
I will take his advice and see the silver
lining every day.
