Humble Pie. Yep…that’s what I had to eat this week. The reason for no blogs is because I was flat on my back for the better part of the week. I pulled a weird muscle in my back…ouchie. This happens to me several times a year as I have a bad back in general.
What better way to do this week’s LIST than to celebrate that humble pie. Have you ever been served a plate? The best way to eat it is to grab a fork, maybe spray on some “whip cream” and go ahead and dig in. Life/growth lessons come in yummy, scrumptions humle pie.
I will go ahead and list out a few things I learned while being humbled this past week and I encourage you to think of a time where your humble pie was served up nice and neat.
~I was forced to ask for help. Heck…I couldn’t even bend over to put my socks on. This is a lesson for me because I pride myself on being a strong, independent woman. Fact is, we are not independent. I need others and I of course, need Jesus for help.
~I learned that even though I was in pain, it wasn’t the worst thing in the world. So many people suffer on a daily basis. I know that my pain will subside and that life will get back to normal soon. But, I’m grateful for the healthy body that God has blessed me with.
~I learned that work can be put on hold while I’m laid up in bed. I got way behind on some projects this week because I couldn’t even sit up with my laptop. God reminded me that things will work themselves out and deadlines will be met. It is important to take care of ourselves when sick. Stressing about deadlines and work while stuck in the sick bed doesn’t help a thing.
I would love to hear if you have ever joined me in eating humble pie. Take some time to reflect and list some reasons why a bit of humility is a good thing.
Can’t wait to read your LIST. Leave a comment…let’s chat!
