We own a coffee maker that I am willing to exchange for a $17.00 Mr. Coffee soon, and very soon. It has a thermos carafe which needs pre-heated with hot water if the coffee is to be hot. For the three years we have owned it, I did not know the plate it rests on is heated. I assumed it was the thermos holding the heat in, but not doing a very good job. (I like coffee and I like it hot.)
Yesterday, Loverby told me the plate was heated. I was incredulous. I didn't believe him. When I put my hand on it - sure enough - it was. I apologized for contradicting him. He smiled so big that I 'fell into his dimples'.
I had to adjust my beliefs ~ to truth. Every time this happens, I could jump with excitement.
The reason is this: what else might I have been wrong about for years and years? It opens doors, windows, and holes in the galaxy when I can change my mind and adjust to the truth. I'm clicking the iLike button on it. :)
