A Blessing in Disguise

When some bak luck or misfortnate ultimately results in something positive; A good thing that you do not recognise at first as being good.

Example Usage: "The hotel is full tonight; we will need to find a new place to stay." Answer: "Maybe it is just a blessing in disguise; I've been wanting to try a new place anyway."

Comment: Some people believe that when good things happen to us they are "blessings" (gifts from God), and that we do not always recognise them for what they are at first.
