  • I have resigned myself to the fact that I have absolutely no ability to conduct my life in a fashion befitting a woman in my particular demographic. The things that occur during the course of the week are absolutely mindless. The events have happened as a result of memory lapses or outright orneriness. I commit a blindingly ill-considered action which I know will result in something stupid, but I seem to have no ability to resist.

  • An old story illustrates the limitations caused by jumping to conclusions without considering the larger picture.
    A young soldier and his commanding officer boarded a train and sat down next to a grandmother traveling with her pretty young granddaughter. As they continued the trip, the young soldier and young lady were obviously attracted to each other. As the train roared through a tunnel, you heard a kiss and then a slap.
    The commanding officer rubbed his jaw and thought, “the young lady meant to slap my impudent soldier and hit me instead.”

  • Ten years ago I wrote: “My friend Mike ate breakfast last week, which is nothing short of a miracle.
    “He doesn’t shake anymore or wake up in the middle of the night sweating. The little green monkeys that haunt him are gone too.”
    This week, my friend Mike is celebrating 10 years being sober. Not just sober, but healed and forgiven, whole and hopeful. He’s tasted the mercy of God, felt his hand of grace that pulled him from the abyss.

  • My husband was recently watching a tennis match on TV. At the risk of plagiarizing myself, “this man has never participated in a sport at which he did not excel. I on the other hand, have never participated in a sport in which I wasn’t a hazard to myself and others” (Crystanomoly, 2015). In the five years we have been married he has equipped me with various pieces of athletic paraphernalia. He has determined that he will transform his klutzy, baby giraffe into a graceful gazelle; Bless his heart.
