I was watching an episode of the Big Bang Theory the other day. I’m not sure if you’ve ever watched that show or other shows by Chuck Lorre, but one screen always has something random on it at the end of the credits. Sometimes it’s related to current events, sometimes it’s about the episode and its founding in a real-life event, and sometimes it’s just nonsensical. For whatever reason, I actually paid attention to that screen when I was watching the last episode. All that was written was, “I don’t know what my expectations are until they’re not met.” This quote struck a nerve with me as I think about this recent Easter season and courage.
