WiseUP: Excuse Me, but I Have a Flat Tire and I Don't Speak Mandarin

I know I have not been around much lately. I guess I will take the time to try to formulate why sometime soon, but not now. Right now I want to share something funny from a friend and fellow blogger. I hope she does not mind. We have known each other a very long time, and I am sure she is perfectly aware of my buttinski qualities. I am not really butting-in here as much as riding her coattails and sharing the lesson I learned from her lesson...

This friend is an intelligent, educated, capable woman. She is a wife and mother and writer. She is also human and as such, sometimes, not often, but sometimes, human crap happens to her. She blogged about just such a day recently. I share her post, not for the little chuckle at her expense, although that is included at no extra charge, but rather as an example of just how things in life are sometimes out of our control. How sometimes we have to be willing to laugh instead of cry. Sometimes we need to be able to step back, take a breath, take a chance, roll with the punches and then be willing to share it with hundreds of strangers.

This is Shelley, and this is her story...
