If I look confused, it’s because I’m thinking. ~Samuel Goldwyn
Now that is a quote I can relate to. My youngest son, Dakota, once asked me why I had two lines between my eyebrows. >:} I said, “One for Levi; one for Dakota!”
I have had teachers, college professors and workshop trainers comment to me about looking confused. It is often when I am pondering what they are saying, not necessarily confused about it. Maybe they were the ones that were confused … because I was paying attention?
There are lots of times I ponder and have to say, “I just don’t get it.”
Like when I wonder why people are mean.
Or why bad things happen to really good people.
Or why the weather is usually nicest on days I have to be at work.
Or why I crave ice cream and chocolate … instead of spinach.
I suppose if every day were sunny, 75 degrees and carefree, we would, eventually, begin to take that for granted. Maybe that’s why we have adversity – to keep us thankful for the good times.
