How do you handle

bad things that happen to you?


How is it with you and others?


Recently, I read about Teddy Roosevelt.

HeĀ  lost his young wife and his beloved mother

within a twenty-four hour period.

He never talked about his sorrow.


SomeĀ  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!.
