God has saved me from my stupidty...again

I hate insects! I hate insects! I hate insects! I have had these stupid little flies annoying me for the past several years and I don't know where they come from. initially, they seemed to die off during the winter and I got a few months of npeace. Well, not this year. i don't know know if it's the warm waehter that keeps them alive but they are everywhere--not in vast nnumbers, but enough to fill as least 5 everyday.
Well, that was my goal this morning as another little one was making it's way after almost flying in my face. i was in the bathroom and i was rinsing out the tub and, without thinking, i threw some ater at it, in the hope of drowning it. Well, that stupid fly was right in front of the outlet and it short-circuited. the noise that followed is the noise i usually hear in a movie when someone is getting electrocuted. thank god I wasn't actually running an appliance and i wasn't actually near it. Of course, though, the lights in the bathroom and in the hallway don't work.
This teaches me that 1)God is always watching me and he sent me a very attentive guardian angel, 2) Life can end in an instant--a true moment of stupidity and not thinking, 3) I need to think before I act, 4) i need to think about the consequences of my actions, 5) I need to pay attention--if I did, i would have realized where that stupid fly was 6) I need to learn patience--I should have waited for a better opportunity to destroy my nemesis instead of acting in the heat of the moment 7) I need to stop letting the little things bother me so much that i let it ruin my day--i.e. i need to stop sweating the small stuff.
Clearly, I have a lot to ponder and work at during Lent--and thankfully, I will be around to do so.
P.S. I also need to work on my complaining--which is what I do everytime I encounter one of those stupid little things!
