As many of you know, Dom and I have taken on the task for now of raising our 11 month old granddaughter. Since Dom and I both collect Medicare, you can imagine how daunting this task is everyday.
I ran into a friend the other day who asked me how things were going. I replied that I was really feeling tired (I am nursing some kind of chest infection), but things were going much better than expected.
Sometimes people really don’t know what to say to you. She replied that anything worthwhile doesn’t come easy.
I got into my car and thought about that. I decided to have my own private pity party and vented to myself that it sure seems like some people can use the words worthwhile and easy in the same sentence.
I soon got over my harumph because I am totally committed to giving this beautiful little soul a good start in life.
This morning I read this quote from Emily Dickinson:
Luck is not chance-
Fortune’s expensive smile
Thanks Emily for the gentle reminder.
Hope you have a harumphless week,
