What do we expect?

For much of our lives many of us have always believed in logic and reason. And we've often based acceptance of the actions of others on whether or not they have been logical and reasonable. And we have tried to solve problems, both scientific and social, based on their logical or reasonable implications. But who decides what is logical or what is reasonable? Recently someone I know made the most important discovery of their life, and it is that true happiness and fulfillment in life lies in the mystery of showing acceptance, love, and forgiveness for family and friends, come Hell or high water, where maybe even no resemblance to reason or logic exists. This is a hard lesson to learn, and even harder for some of us to practice it day in and day out. It's worth a try, just in case you're not already doing it everyday of your life.   -Laramie Boyd
