Losing something is usually disturbing, sometimes painful, and at other times, downright devastating.
Often we don't realize how valuable something is until we lose it. That happens to a lot of people.
That happened to me. Seems odd that I can tell you what I lost in 4 words but it takes a lot more words to tell you that I lost something and that it was devastating to lose.
ONCE UPON A TIME,
I. Lost. My. Brain
Yep! I said it. I … lost … my … brain.
But this post is not about what I lost. It is about what I found.
I. Found. A. New. Brain. Or better, I. GOT. A. NEW. BRAIN.
But, it wasn't easy! In fact, it was hard, very hard.
Actually, I didn't really find it at all. I had a transplant. Well.. sort of. I know what you're thinking.. they DO NOT TRANSPLANT BRAINS! But that's not true. They do! The catch is, you have to try them on just like you try on hats. I tried a new brain out every few years or so until I finally got one that fit me perfect.
The first brain I tried on was this, “Wild Thing.” That brain liked to have fun. It liked to party! That brain wore me out! Finally, I had to take that brain back because I couldn't take it any more.
The second brain I tried out was a very broken brain. That brain kept breaking and had me going in and out of the hospitals, doctors, and the funny farm. I finally said, “I've had enough of this!” So I took that brain back.
The third brain I tried out was, “I like alcohol” brain. That brain got me into so
much trouble that I could NOT WAIT to take that brain back!
Let me explain, sometimes between trying out these brains, I didn't have a brain at all. I can't tell you what happened during those times, well because, I didn't have a brain.
One day while I was wandering around like a zombie because I was brainless, my Heavenly Father took a hold of my hand and said,
“Priceless, I have a brain that is just right for you.”
He took my face in His wonderful and magnificent hands, touched the top of my
head, and said, YOU NOW HAVE A NEW BRAIN! (My forever brain). I jumped for JOY!
I can't even begin to describe to you how wonderful it was to have a new brain that was indeed, the right brain for me.
It is PRICELESS!
It is this new brain that causes me to try and help people around me. I do it because I want everyone to be successful. In fact, your success is even more important to me, than mine. So, if I have hurt your feelings. Please forgive me.
It's because of this new brain.
