Positions of responsibility

Years of experience

Give the illusion of control.

Kindly affirmation by others

Can add to the illusion,

Until harsh reality sets in

Like a bucket of cold water

Poured over your head.

The ‘rosy glow’ is quickly dispelled.


While painful,

One gets the proper perspective:

All is gift.


So, appreciate what you have been given

Rejoice in each day

And treasure love

  1. Great reflection.

    Are you on LSL at the moment?

    Anne and Elaine had afternoon tea at the Moriac store last week. I think your niece served them.

    Your friend,
