What happens when we don't listen

Today, I noticed this lizard on my kitchen window.  He is missing his tail.  He probably didn't listen to his mother when she explained to him that he needed to hide, camouflage himself, and not play with cats.  He probably had a friend talk him into venturing out where he shouldn't go, and he lost his tail because of it.  He is still alive, and he will grow a new tail.  

It was one of those "ah-ha" moments that was made clear to me. The Atonement is real.  People make mistakes.  We allow others to influence us, but we can overcome the silly things that we do.
