One morning, I walked down the path to my car and right into a huge spiderweb that had appeared overnight.

I felt foolish for not having seen it, rid myself of the web tendrils, and went on my way. The next morning, the very same scenario occurred, and I felt even more foolish.

On the third day, I was careful to look for the web—the spider had rewoven it, but this time off the path in the bushes.

How humbling to realize that the spider and I had learned the exact same lesson in the same amount of time.
