"Life will knock you down. You can choose to stand up again."

I'm not sure why, but I don't learn very well the easy way. I have to have it nailed, hammered, screwed into my head over and over and over again in order to finally get it. Apparently, I like to learn the hard way. Eventually, though, I do get it. I do finally grasp the ideas that I should have gotten and lived with much earlier on. I have hurt feelings, angered people, caused my family grief, and failed my children repeatedly. I hope that I do better. I hope that I hurt fewer feelings and disappoint fewer people. I hope that I eventually make people happy and proud. I am thankful for second chances.
