Are You A Cow Or A Bull?

When my oldest son was in middle school, he REALLY enjoyed trying to make the family choose between two choices.

"Dad, would you rather have a tent stake pushed through your stomach or be stabbed in the eye."


"If you had to pick one, would it be A or B?"


The choice I am asking you to make is not quite so extreme.

Would you rather be a cow or a buffalo?


When a storm is approaching, cows see it and RUN AWAY from the storm. Consequently they end up being IN the storm for a longer period of time. Even when the storm is hitting them full force, they FOLLOW the direction of the storm.

Buffalo, on the other hand, see a storm approaching and they MOVE TOWARDS the storm. Consequently they are in the storm for a shorter period of time.

How do you handle the storms of life?
