You know the old saying ” That hit me like a ton of bricks”.
Do you ever feel like you a ton of bricks fell on your head? Have you had something hit you so hard; that it felt as if that ton of bricks did fall on your head?
Many have something like that happen to them all the time. Sometimes it is a major incidence, something that is so very dramatic that it almost takes your breath away.
Then there are those times it is very small, an event, an action, a thought, something that can be overlooked so easily; or even a subtle hint from someone that we did not pay attention to.
In any case; it might make you stagger; as if you just had a ton of bricks really fall on your head, leaving you feeling stunned and even emotional. Some need that occasional ton of bricks to fall on them; so they may realize what they missed or maybe ignored.
The lessons to be learned in the midst of all of it, and the growth that we receive while recovering from it; is worth every bit of that feeling.
Be thankful for that occasional ton of bricks; it is not always a bad thing. It helps us to see what we may want to ignore.
Count your bricks and be thankful for the blessings poured out on you.
