I am 29, almost 30. I have been married to the man of my dreams for almost 3 years. We have a two year old little boy who rocks our world. I started this blog so my friends and family around the U.S. could keep up with our little family and see how big our little man gets every day. View my complete profile
I received this in an email....
An 'opportune' lesson for us all.
Come with me to a third grade classroom....
There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden,
there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are Wet.
He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly
imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he
knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it.
When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as
The boy believes his heart is going to stop, he puts his head down
and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help
now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."
He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in
her eyes that says he has been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is
carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in
front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the
The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself,
"Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"
Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy
is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and
gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out.
All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up
around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else -Susie. She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. "You've done
enough, you klutz!"
Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the
boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that on purpose,
didn't you?" Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."
May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.
