My husband’s quip to my deeply humiliating dilemma – “You might have stank eye.”
The lesson I got from this? Learn to joyfully embrace these mindful moments of eating Humble Pie and moreover, to laugh . . . remember not to take yourself too seriously – especially because most others do not do so anyway.
By this I am also gently reminded that none of us are above rolling in the mud like the Prodigal Son; thus, if not by our own volition, then by life’s Design we shall be covered in filth at some point. Apparently, no person is above being human – self included.
“In the designs of Providence, there are no mere coincidences.”
– Saint Pope John Paul II
I am also thinking of Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go. Indeed.
