If you’re here looking for some sort of Sweeny Todd-ish method of transforming your least favorite person into meat pies, then you’ve come to the wrong place.

Here’s my list of the top ten hidden uses for your enemies:

1. They promptly show you how you don’t want to be, time and again.

2. They offer you plenty of opportunities to practice unconditional love.

3. They help you focus on “putting your hand to the plow”, giving each new encounter a fresh perspective.

4. They jerk you back to your blissful NOW, where your sweet children and grocery list patiently wait, in sharp contrast to the seemingly annoying memories of what he/she said or did.

5. They make great doorstops. (I threw this one in just to see if you are paying attention)

6. They reflect what you need to learn. Yes, (repeat after me) they either exhibit behavior that you’re guilty of- to a small degree- OR they prove that you have a long-standing expectation of them that needs to be released.

7. They are messengers from God to test your skills of speaking only of beautiful, wanted things ONLY!

8. They can be boiled down in a large pot for 10 minutes, thus making a great liver cleanse if you dare to partake. (Again, not a Freudian slip- just a mild attempt to see if you are still with me.)

9. They drive home the point that you are LOVERS and when you are not LOVING (you know, like when you’re venting and fuming with a third party about what was said or done) we feel bad!

10. They provide the Ultimate Test to see if you can see them as Jesus does- at the very core of who they are, they are beautiful and wonderful!

Expect the BLEST!
Forget the REST!
