So this what I see. What reply link do I choose? Quick reply does not seem to work. I feel I am missing something that staring right at me.

And as an added bonus you learned quick reply doesn't give you an option to quote the original post. Big Smile

This is me:

My grandma kept a chalk board upon which she wrote sayings.  Upon each visit, I would check out the pearls.

My fav is, 'Too soon old, too late smart.'

You are so funny! I am glad that I had that confidence in my youth, despite how stupid that I was. If I had known what I did not know, I would have been frozen, and being frozen would have been the worst thing possible, for myself and the younger and weaker people that were dependent on me.

I carried an impossible burden and was too stupid to know it was impossible. You cannot fail the impossible. Everything that you do accomplish is a win. I accomplished things. I saved people. I did not accomplish it all. I did not save them all. But I did not freeze. I did not give up. I am thankful for the ignorance of my youth.

Too often, I freeze now. Still, I am trying to accomplish the impossible, but I know it now. I just have to chant to myself, "It is not failure to fail the impossible". I need to just keep accomplishing what I can with what I have, and count it all as wins.
