Unexpected Teachers

But just as a puppy can expose your vulnerabilities, he can also teach vulnerability.

Who in your life is an unexpected teacher?

Who challenges you in ways that may frustrate you but encourage growth?

Who can you be more joyful toward as a way of showing your love?

We are surrounded by unexpected teachers: children, spouses, co-workers, friends, animals, nature. Honor them. Be grateful for them.

And remember that you, too, are an unexpected teacher for others.
