So what do wading ducks and emotional women have in common? Unfortunately, often very little!
We’ve all heard the phrase “Like water off a duck’s back.” We’ve all seen how ducks can merrily wade through puddles or go for a swim without it affecting their protective coat of oiled feathers.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could apply some of that oil to ourselves for life’s situations?! But it seems many times, instead of deflecting things, we sisters can be quick to “absorb” the comments and situations we encounter rather than seeing them from their proper perspective.
It’s the men who are often the example of letting the words, stinging comments, or tricky situations just fade to the background without allowing it to take them for a ride. I often look at them and wonder, “How do they do it?”
