Do you get IT?

We've all heard 'you just don't get it'. I'm guilty myself of saying this, usually in frustration. You spend time to explain something in great detail, answer all the questions, show more examples and then the other person just goes and does something totally out of synch and you just know THEY DON'T GET IT!
I've made decisions in the past that, with the knowledge I now have, I would not make the same decision again. Does that make sense? I mean, I am still learning every day about myself, others and human nature and the fact you can't change others, only yourself and perhaps your surroundings.
This is all very cryptic, isn't it? Well, to clear things up...I know someone, whom I thought, didn't get it. I had put a lot of effort and myself into this person, but all the while, I was shaking my head. You do the very best you can and then you have to step back. I did my best and I did step back.
Yesterday I/we got the best surprise ever in the mail. And you know what?
The who & the circumstances don't matter, what matters is there is one more person in the world, who actually gets it - the harder you work, the luckier you get!

Ahhhh....some things you can always count both your girls calling to ask...who got it?!!!!!

What really matters is that they DID get it.
