I'm tempted to share all of my depressing thoughts, the struggles that weigh me down right now, but I believe that laughter is the best medicine and so here's a slightly amusing post!
All the last couple of weeks I've been trying to contact a partner family of ours at habitat, to no avail. I was getting frustrated and thinking maybe he was ignoring me and that was unusual for him. I immediately suspected he was avoiding me becuase he didn't have the money to pay the house payment.
But then, a couple of days ago, he stopped in the office, made a payment and chatted with us about how life was going, how the truck he had needed fixed, the boys getting into trouble, etc., etc.:
"So, are you getting tired of listening to all my voice mail messages?" I said.
"And that's the other thing that went wrong!" He said.
"I was changing the oil on the truck, set the phone down- forgot about it. Finished up and got into the truck later to pick up the boys and two seconds of backing up I heard CRUNCH! OOH, what was that? I got out and looked and there was my phone, imbedded into my driveway. I ran over my phone! NO one has been able to get a hold of me!"
And here I thought I was being ignored....poor guy ran over his own phone!
