Why Did You Spill The Water?

From a client turned friend: “Someone I know posted this and I thought of you. Best wishes! …You are holding a cup of water when someone comes along and shoves you or shakes your arm, making you spill your water everywhere. Why did you spill the water? “Well, because someone bumped into me, of course!” Wrong answer. You spilled the water because water was in the cup. If milk had been in it, you would have spilled milk. Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out. Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which...

The Fairy Godmother Came to Visit Me, You Might Want Her to Visit You Too!

A VISIT FROM THE FAIRY GODMOTHER HERSELF!
