Life's Lesson

This is the time of year for icicles and the time of year which always reminds me of a life lesson that I learned at the age of 6.I grew up in an old farm house and the icicles used to extend from the second story roof all the way down to the ground level. They were huge, amazingly beautiful and a wonder to see, but Mom always said not to play around them or don't touch them. One day while playing outside I just couldn't resist these sparkling wonders and went over and tugged on one. Well, down came many pounds of frozen ice crashing down on my head!

As I picked myself up out of the snow, brushed myself off and looked embarrassingly around to see if anybody caught me doing exactly what my Mommy told me not to do, I remember so clearly thinking "Hmmm....I guess Mommy IS always right." And that ladies and gentlemen is a life lesson we should all heed to.
