Yesterday I arrived at the county jail for an incarcerated fathers’ class and walked around to the passenger side of my truck to get the materials needed.
When I opened the door a plastic lid fell out and slid under the truck. I squatted down trying to avoid; “getting on all fours” so as not to dirty my pants or look silly to a passerby. I reached, stretched and tried my best to look for and grab it but to no avail. Finally, I got on my hands and knees and was able to see and grasp the elusive object.
Oftentimes we do everything we can to avoid looking desperate or putting ourselves in a vulnerable position. We forget that to locate and attain what truly matters we must be willing to get down low, not worry about appearing foolish and not give up until we find what we’re searching for.
