When those bricks hit the ground before they hit your head, it's much easier to add them to the foundation.
I haven't had many bricks lately. Over the years, I've compiled quite a heap. They have fallen neatly into place as I examine each one before laying it down. I have found, taking a close look at the bricks hurled at me, has taught me many lessons.
If you are having a lot of bricks thrown your way, it's probably time to pick one up and take a good, long, look, before turning your back. One or two bricks may hit you in the head, unwarranted. BUT, if there are many, and if they all have a similar message, a good look would behoove you.
It may sting for a moment. If it goes by the wayside, it will sting a lot longer. Fantasizing the freedom to take a long, hard, look, at the bricks, before placing them in my foundation.,
