True And…

“You can’t stop the waves,”

the guru said, “but you can learn to surf.”

When I heard this many years ago,

I thought it made sense and I’d begin.

Little did I know how hard it would be

or how long it would take.

I’m still learning at seventy eight.

    Joan, I love having your daily thoughts come to my email. I also have adopted a dog, a hound named Gracie (I have waited for her since 5th grade!!!), and so I especially love hearing about Knox. Hope you are safe, well, and content. : )

      Thank you, Sarah. There’s nothing quite like a dog…such joy bringers. I hope that this finds you safe, well, and content too. So good to hear from you.
