Someone doesn't heart me.
Get in line "anonymous." I'm not everyone's cup of tea.
And now THIS heartbreak (tongue-firmly-in-cheek)
Bo's looks don't meet your standards. Our moral compass is evil. Bo is destined to fail and have a miserable life. Where were you when I was ASKING for advice? Had I only known, we might not have fallen down so flat.
(Anonymous's comments appear around #30 in the comments on "Bo's Senior Photos". My response is shortly thereafter for the interested.) UPDATE: Her name is LENA and she has written again, as have I. She has my admiration for coming back and identifying herself.
And the following is food for thought:
"He has no enemy, you say;
My friend your boast is poor,
He who hath mingled in the fray
Of duty that the brave endure
Must have made foes.
If he has none
Small is the work that he has done.
He has hit no traitor on the hip;
Has cast no cup from perjured lip;
Has never turned the wrong to right;
Has been a coward in the fight.
May you be brave today and go forth doing good and bringing joy!
This one just gave me the chuckle I needed: :-)

And finally, for Inspiration:
"DO IT ANYWAY"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank; people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God It was never between you and them anyway.

Thank you for making me think of all this today, Anonymous! Sometimes we need a challenge.
