I just added these words of angel Kyodo williams to 'Quotes' on this blog. It's all so obvious: not everything bad that happens is your fault, and you can take responsibility for how you respond. That's my read; you may have a somewhat different one. Responsibility--that's the key word I take from it. I can be responsible for what I can be responsible for, but, a big BUT, is that I have to choose to take that responsibility.
Today Fenway, our resident cat, took responsibility to get our of the way of the people who were cleaning my house, hiding under the desk in the Angel Room. She knew what to do, and knew enough to shut up about it. We humans have different built-in responses, although perhaps hiding under a desk might a responsible choice. Certainly keeping our mouth shut is always a choice worth considering.
