Ok, so today’s post is supposed to be a funny story…

When this happened, I wasn’t laughing, but when I look back on it, I crack up. A couple of weeks ago I went to McDonald’s before class and got breakfast and coffee. When I got to work and was walking up the front stairs of the building, I stumbled. Not wanting to spill my coffee I wobbled trying to find my balance.

The problem was, I over compensated and I went down. My coffee went flying and hit the front door, bounced off and dumped out on my head as I fell. I was lying on the ground in a heap with skinned knees, and coffee dripping off my head. As I stood and entered the building, I was greeted by those who saw me fall. I was a mess. The bag holding my breakfast fell apart and my McGriddle was extra soggy. My hair was sopping wet, coffee streaks were running down my face, my jacket was drenched and my knees were bleeding. What a great start to the day!

I’ve spilled coffee many times before but never on my head. I’ve tried to find the lesson in this and I guess it’s that this was a character building day --- and that it’s important to laugh at yourself. Laughter truly is the best medicine!

Oh my! I'm glad you can laugh about it now. I spilled my coffee on me and my Bible during class last week, but I'm afraid your fall has me beat!
What a great reminder to find the laughter and the lesson in the mess!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Sweet blessings~

Oh my word, Nat, a similar thing happened to me on Friday morning. Yours was much worse but I was craving my coffee and was late getting it. I got it and took it in the house but right as I was fooling with my keys to open the door I dropped it and it went all over the door, the porch, my shoes. A HUGE mess! My post today is on spilled coffee at church....as in it rolled under the five pews in front of me while spilling out coffee the entire time. It was the one Sunday I was on the back row thankfully.
