How do you handle
bad things that happen to you?
How is it with you and others?
Recently, I read about Teddy Roosevelt.
He lost his young wife and his beloved mother
within a twenty-four hour period.
He never talked about his sorrow.
Some never stop talking about theirs.
I doubt there is any best way to deal
with matters like this
but should I have to cope
I would need others to lean upon.
What I marvel at is that
I have lived more than 87 years
and my deepest sorrow has come
from some dogs I have lost.
And I have talked about it!.
