    The most humbling experiences I have had was when my mom got sick and lost her life battle after 6months.  On top that both my husband and my daughter became disabled.  My mom has been gone for 2yrs now and we just found out that my husband and my daughter are missing part of chromosome 10 which is what has caused their medical issues making them disabled.

    Hey JL, the most humbling experience I have incurred, would be the birth of my Daughter. My life had gone bad for some years, the day she came into the World I was brought back to earth with a big bang.

    Good question by the way.

    when I was 17, working at a local grocery store at the customer service desk, I was waiting on this Priest.  I was wearing a gold Star of David, to which caught the eye of the man in cloth.  He announced rather loudly, that I had killed Jesus!  I am not Jewish, but loved that necklace because it related to my Jewish friends of the past.  I learned so much from them about their faith and believe in celebration of diversity.  I saw people turn and stare.  The Priest pointed at my necklace and repeated again, how I was responsible for Jesus' death.  I did not feel humility for myself at that moment, but I felt the worst humility for the Christian faith.

    It was when we were homeless, without jobs, three kids, far away from our country and our host decided to cut electricity and water. We had to draw water from a lake behind the house for our washing and other household  uses. The most humiliating part was when our kids were teased for it on their way to school and people looked at us strangely. It was something we had to endure but we learned a lot from it.

    I'm always humbled by the kindness and compassion of my children towards me either through words or deeds.

    You just might find this somewhat ridiculous..............

    I manage a kitchen, that serves senior citizens, many of them have lost control of their bodily functions.   

    Some of them, can no longer, command their hands and arms, to pick up a fork or spoon, and bring the food to their mouths.    It might be alzhemiers, it could be MD, MS, or it could be another, unexplained, or unidentified physical or mental cause.

    There are the aids who dress them, shave them, toilet and bathe them.   That is their job.   They deal with these things every single day.

    I work more " backstage".........cooking, ordering groceries, holding my staff accountable to sanitation laws and practices.

    The very first time, that I had to physcially " feed" an adult ( of course , I had fed my own children )  was traumatic.    It was second, only, to accepting my Salvation.

    I went home and I cried...............I am not easily given to tears.   My heart hurt for those many people, who can no longer do for themselves.

    They are not only to feeble to live alone, defend their homes, dress themselves......................

    they can not even EAT without assistance.   Except for the kindness of others, they would sit and slowly STARVE to death........just because, they can no longer pick up a fork, secure a morsel of food, and bring it to their own mouths.

    Later, as life progresses for some of us, and deterioates for others,   I was helpless, in caring for my own parent.   The march of death had already been played for me..........the watching of the parade was unbearable.

    Every time I learn from a child, I am humbled. Young children have a curious way of seeing and understanding things that allude me. That's why I choose to spend as much time with them as possible! (I am an elementary school teacher)

    the most humbling experience was just a few months ago. i was walking down the hallway and a fellow teacher put her arm around me, and, said...

    'You will be missed every day, all day. What a loss to our school, you are such a wonderful teacher.'
    I sobbed and even now I do as I write this. I was so humbled by those words. One never really knows what others think.
    It made me realize that I need to say more often to others what I am thinking about the wonderful things they are doing.
    (I had to retire early as my daughter is very ill so it meant leaving my school family and my precious classroom of children)

    When I became comatose from a bleed to the brain and found out that my close friend was comatose too and we were in rooms next to each other. I played ice hockey with him 2 weeks ago. We both fully recovered and I simultaneously discovered that He knows everything, you cannot hide anything from Him... No need for our justice system, "justice" will be provided upon our death...
