A valuable lesson
I once had a simple cabin near Duluth, on the bank of a fair sized river; a wonderful place, as you could imagine. One of my favorite times there was deep winter. Never knowing when circumstance might allow me to go there for a short visit, I usually left some basic foods there.
One winter I’d left a nearly full box of Cheerios cereal, the little “O’s” made from oats.
One visit, I’d discovered that a mouse had found the box’s opening. With apprehension, I opened the box and was dismayed at what eventually became a great insight and lesson.
