Several years ago I was asked to officiate for the renewal of wedding vows on a couple’s tenth wedding anniversary. Everyone knew it was their tenth anniversary, and they provided a reception in the Unity Hall for the close family and friends that were invited.

In my introduction I misspoke and said that they had had five good years together. Someone asked if that was the first five or the last five and everyone had a good laugh.

If we were perfect we would never make mistakes, but since we’re all human, sometimes we do make mistakes. Its a lot easier to receive forgiveness if we let others see that we are human, than if we carry ourselves as perfect. So, make sure people see you as real. Laugh at your own errors and it makes it easy for others to laugh at them, as well.

What word blunder have you made recently that proved you were human?

Happened at the bank this very morning. The teller was trying not to laugh at me, so I laughed at myself thus giving her permission to join in the fun. Oh, well.
I never did tell you this, but at Mama Rose’s service you said she would have been 100 if she lived another 2 months when, in fact, she would have been 99. I just figured, well that’s pretty close to 100 anway! LOL

See, I can’t even spell anyway today. I’d better be extra careful. The biorhythms seem to be in a mess.
