We Missed the Mark
There are times in life where failure creates happy little accidents. Like when you accidentally rear-end the man who will eventually become your husband. Or when you get bitten by a radioactive spider. Or that third child – I think that you know what I’m saying.
But more often than not failures are just that. I’ve had failures that make me want to burn the evidence, and failures so bad that a Law & Order episode is based on them.
Everyone struggled with this lesson. Ultimately that means that I failed. Failure in teaching usually comes down to communication – either the emphasis is wrong or the it’s just not explained correctly for the target audience (like when somebody uses multisyllabic words to explain something to a member of congress).
At first, I was dismayed. I didn’t even want to tell you this. Unfortunately my husband returned early and extinguished the fire before all of the evidence was destroyed, so I began to see it as a fine way to see what I needed to focus on.
