Humility

I've had several servings of humble pie lately.

I ask to grow in humility and I guess it's only fair I have the chance to.

Like when I asked to learn how to love, the knowledge wasn't imparted to my mind but rather my soul had the chance to experience love and loss.

The economist in me says 'There aint no such thing as a free lunch' and I can't help but apply that to the growth of my soul. Love, humility and hope aren't acquired for free but through long laboring with those we encounter in life.

...Humble pie.
..it's a very humbling thing.
