Thought for the Week

Sometimes you just have to say “I am currently under construction. Thank you for your patience.” -unknown

We are not perfect.  We never have been and never will be.  We are perpetually “under construction.”  This can be trying for us but at least we get to view the entire project and can see the progress.  Unfortunately, others sometimes bump into our unfinished parts and experience the chaos of our construction project.  Explaining the potential benefits of our personal project does little to lessen the impact.  Sometimes we just have to swallow our pride, apologize, and ask for patience.

When have others been impacted by me being a “work in progress?” How did I respond?  What gifts await me as I accept my imperfect progress and apologize for the inconvenience?
