My Path to Humility

The definition of humility is "the quality of being humble". I became humble this morning when my snow blower wouldn't start. I've been a little proud and feeling "just a little bit superior" that I can get my snow blower going and stuff plowed out before the neighbor guys get around. You know, that "I am Woman, hear me roar" stuff.
Well, she wouldn't start this morning and I asked Ben who was plowing my driveways with his truck if he would take a look at it. Well, duh, what I thought was a choke is actually some sort of prime thingy. Using the correct little choke lever, it took right off.
So above is my snow blower path to humility and the barn......

Hmm... Humility. I'm familiar with that one, Maple, too familiar. LOL Those darn 'machines' (of all sorts) get me everytime. The good news is longer the path you plow in humility, the easier it gets. Really! ;)

Glad you got the snowblower going, Roaring Woman! :) Way to go!!!

VROOOM...VRRRROOOOOMMMMM!!!! I can hear you "Roaring" just fine!!! The "path of humility", does keep us plowing thru it with unforseeable challenges doesn't it??? At the end of it tho, I usually become more empathetic, a little wiser and more
appreciative....and those are good things....NOT easy tho...Remember, in addition to being "WOMAN", you can also say, "I am YOOPER, hear me double ROOAAAARRR!!! I'm getting all "CHOKED" up..(smile)...
