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?
