That phrase, this too shall pass .. then the other phrase, worry only makes us worked up, we’ll be smiling at the worry a year from now..?
I was locked out of my house late one Sunday night around six months ago. It was a little inconvenient because it was nearly midnight! If I were Cinderella, I’d be in a big fix!
The locksmith who came in the next morning, (now is the time to ask about my adventures of that night☺️) couldn’t open the lock with his duplicate key after working on making it for nearly 3 hours! (After the recent Italian Job, how the woman picks locks.. I’d love to be in that profession ;)) The man in his desperation to prove he wasnt at fault, prove his excellence at his job, broke open the door.. there were cracks! It was a clumsy effort and it showed! my house owner who stays across the corridor wasnt that happy! Whenever I looked at the door it made me guilty for the shape of it! (I’m thibking that song from Ed Shreen😉)
So, now after all these months my house owner brings his carpenter to look at the door, today. To my joy and his disappointment, the carpenter said the door was absolutely sturdy, and if a thief wants to break in, they’d carve out one of the fancy pieces instead of widening the teeny weeny crack (I did a mini dance in my head)
He did some polishing to the door. As I look at my door now, as I’m typing out his post, I realise nobody from now on would even realise this one had cracks or had jarred edges until this morning. With all the cracked filled, levelled, and polished over.. my door looks brand new, like it is its birthday today 😛
Coming to the point ( which is like a fav phrase of one my friends these days) the phrase I began with is profound.
