"Stop wondering," he said, "whether the fine work you are doing will eventually have results. Of course it will." He like to quote this poem:

The day you least expect them to
Your ships will all come home to you.
But fretting will not help them to,
You cannot add more wings to wings
Nor speed inevitable things.
In their good time
Whate'er you do,
Your ships will all come home to you.

(clipping from newspaper, don't know the author)

An observation I have made and tried to pass on to the offspring "don't worry about keeping up with the Jones"s, they are probably having trouble keeping up with themselves"!! Or "just hoe your own row"! Have a gooder, R.E.L.

Just when you think you see the light at the end of the tunnel. It turns out to be a train coming at you. :{)

Yes, Burr I have felt that way many times!

(I have also had many a sign {from up above} and
darn, I didn't know whether to turn left or turn right! Dang forks in the road!)

One time I thought I was getting a sign from above, but it turned out to be my son tinkling thru the barn loft floor just above me.
