Proven as spring follows winter,
planted seeds don’t  always grow.
Hopes are not promises.
Expectations are only possibilities.

Trust in whatever comes,
gratitude for mistakes, stumbles
and falls makes the difference
in happiness now or misery.

Looking back at problems
can bring lessons of wisdom,
opportunities to understand
the purpose of each day’s journey.

Thanks for the words of wisdom, and great picture! And how absolutely true, the last stanza...opportunities to understand the purpose of each day's journey.

so true...and i think a whole lot more people need to take pix of themselves with the idea of what they see, not who they are with
