It’s intriguing, the way lessons are presented to me. Like a jigsaw puzzle, without the picture, the latest lesson came in pieces. I put the pieces together, waiting for the picture to be revealed.
This lesson began like the previous ones. I was completely unaware of what I was about to encounter. It began with the innocent act of looking for a financial document.
