If I Look Confused

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.
