"I've learned that the great challenge of life is to decide what's important and to disregard everything else." age 51
Some time ago my sister gave me a little book entitled Live and Learn and Pass It On. It is a wonderful little compilation of good lessons people ages 5-95 have learned about love, life and other fun stuff. It has made me think about things I have learned in my 53 years. I have been enjoying reading this little gem and will probably be using some of life lessons to spur me on to write more.
So for today; I've learned that no matter what you do in life, you cannot please everyone.
Having the tree taken down yesterday made me feel sad and unsettled. I have never had a tree removed, I have only planted them. But I thought long about doing it and I plan to plant a new tree in the backyard, farther away from the fence that won't be so worrisome.
