To be Human,to Forgive Divine

Being Atlas

Ah, to be HUMAN,prone to make mistakes. But some of us, like myself, have a little more than being prone. I am more Favorable to, or Subject with Open-Mouth-Insert-Foot-disease. Life is always interesting, never a dull moment. If being embarrassed, and feeling awkward builds character, I would be ATLAS by now . And when we mess up, we feel like the world is on our shoulders. But have you heard that old saying " The LORD doesn't put on ya, what ya cant handle"? Well some people are living proof.
To FORGIVE one's self I think is a virtue and if you make a major boo-boo,don't be so hard on yourself but its easier said than done. Sometimes, I think of it like a car crash. You almost have a kinda post-traumatic stuff on your mind, you think about it often, but in time it LESSENS. This is what happened to me in my crazy but wonderful life. And Lord knows I am not a doctor.

For example; Awkward moment; backing out of drive way, forgotten coffee cup on roof of car, neighbor tries to warn you, you think he is just waving,you smile and wave back, you say,"Ah, Mr. Smith waved back. How sweet."
Mr Smith "Hey Girlie, ya got a cup of coffee on top of your car. Yeah, wave you O' NUT."

You feel cornered cause someone is talking to you and unfortunately they are 'trashing someone with bad gossip'. And they can tell by the LOOK of your eyes that they walk up behind the gossiper and they say " they are right behind me aren't they?"

You have been in the bank but when you go back in the car you have big streak of eye-liner make up all the side of your face ( the cause of laughing). And WHY didn't one of my good ol' buddies at work tell me this?


Your child tells the preacher at the end of the service "we were too broke to put any offering in that plate"

You pull up a very popular take-out restaurant and you and your husband had been talking about the Nick Name of a burger. ( you and your husband MAKE nick names and catch phrases to a lot of things just between the two of you)You are at the take out window and you accidentally say" I want a LARGE Big and Nasty". You close your eyes and sigh, THEN you hear laughing. The next thing you hear is"You want fries with that?"

When you are talking to some very nice guests that are very old fashioned and very religious. They say something about all the tractors and pulling bales of hay out on country roads and ya say "YEAH, I even see concubines, all the time,I mean really! Those concubines are SO SLOW, they shouldn't be on the road!" They are laughing, and you are wondering to yourself WHY are the doubled-over-hanging'-on-something laughing? Then it hits you right between the eyes! Oh......man. Where's me a rock to crawl under?

      You have tickled my funny bone with this one.I know there has been times it might take awhile before they come to mind.I remember going to a wedding and seeing a cousin with the zipper of his fly down.I tried to warn him kind of quietly until someone else just yelled it out.Your fly in your pants is down.Talk about being embarrassed then having to eat dinner and spend the night with everyone after.I do remember once going to a wedding myself and my deodorant wore off.I wasn't aware of it.My cousin gave me a look and I over heard him telling another cousin.I went in the mens room used as much soap as I could on a paper towel but somethings just don't go away so easily.I couldn't wait for that reception to be over.It is easy to laugh now but then it was all but funny.

      I guess to mess things up is just part of being human. Embarrasing at the moment but hilarious later on. Nice topic!

      I think a lot of us have similar episodes whether we want to talk about them or even remember them. :) But life goes on, doesn't it? Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
