Despite the walls I usually put up, I've been sharing this story to a few friends this week (including you, friends) and it's helped me to know I'm not the only one feeling like a complete and utter lunatic at times.
And I was reading a verse from my favorite book in the Bible...it was a verse that I had overlooked before, but rang loud and clear as I read it again: "He will make everything beautiful in its time." Ecclesiastes 3:11
Translated, this means that even the most frustrating, devastating, annoying circumstances WILL become beautiful with time. We grow through them because they are a form of discipline. They become a story we share to teach others not to go down the same dumbass road we so willingly skipped down. ha.
And this wasn't a "devastating" circumstance. Nah, it was just annoying and a little hurtful in a schoolgirl-crush kind of way, but it still stings, though. I swear, everything in my adult life somehow brings me back to being 14.
Anyway, funny story from my work today. One little boy, Ben, runs up to me and screams, "MISS ASHLEY! MISS ASHLEY! Do you know what Robbie did?"
"What Ben?" I ask, preparing myself for anything.
"HE THREW MY HAT DOWN THE TOILET!" Ben says, pointing to the now noticeably wet hat.
"Oh gosh," I say, slapping my forehead with my hand, trying to hide my smirk at the same time.
But don't you know? We all have moments when our hats get thrown down the toilet. And man, that's a bad day. But that too, will become beautiful in its time. Er, at least it will become funny in its time.
