Do you ever get lost?

I traveled to a speaking engagement out of town. I printed out my directions from the group's website, provided by one of those map websites. I made it to the city just fine, but quickly discovered that the mileage on the map was way off; so off in fact, that I pretty soon had no idea where I was.

So I just followed my nose a bit and then did what we men find incredibly challenging--stopped and asked directions. And to top it off--asked directions from a woman. And not just a woman. A car full of women.

They were so kind. "Oh sir, you're not that far off," one of them said. And the driver gave me most excellent directions, which I repeated back to her to make sure I understood. I got them correct and she said, "You're handsome and smart." "And very grateful for your help, ladies," I replied.

Some time during this frantic month, you may get lost. You know, forget where you are in the midst of all the busyness. Or, why you're buying presents or going to parties. When you do, just stop and ask for directions to the meaning in this season. You may not be that far off, as you listen to life and Live Positive.
