Sunday, March 22, was the one year anniversary of the day I learned a lesson. Actually, several lessons.
- Knives are not tools. Do not, under any circumstance, no matter how convenient, use a knife to pry something open. Take a couple of extra seconds to acquire an appropriate tool!
- When being admitted to a German hospital, be prepared to stay for a week. No matter the procedure, they will want you to stick around.
- Make sure that you are surrounded by the most amazing people in the world. Those are the people who will do whatever it takes to make sure that you are driven an hour away to have surgery in the middle of the night, step in to take care of the children, and bring you goodies while you wander around in the glorious hospital gown.
I now realize that even a little finger can provide one of the greatest opportunities for revelations.
