Wisdom Wednesday: Why Me? Why NOT Me?

Wisdom Wednesday: Why Me? Why NOT Me?

My DVR is programmed to record 60 Minutes every Sunday night. Sundays at 7PM, it turns out, are never a good time to watch live, so it’s recorded to watch at a more convenient time.

Yesterday I was feeling a little sluggish, so I got into bed at 3pm for a little 30 minute break before carpool. I turned on 60 Minutes.

The Other Side of Victim

Just before my alarm went off, I opened my eyes and rushed to the bathroom mirror. They were even darker and more pronounced than last night.

This wasn’t a dream.

I ignored my mother’s voice coming from downstairs and stayed with my reflection. Standing frozen, as witness to the aftermath, I stepped outside myself, in awe.
