WORRY

When I was in my late teens or early 20's, I met a book that would change my life. I kept it by my bedside and read it faithfully during troubled times or whenever I looked for inspiration, perspective, hope, wisdom, and encouragement. 

  Although I really didn't have life-threatning or real world problems, I did have challenges and concerns that at the time, seemed difficult to bear. The poem that got me through many a worrisome time is shared below, Hopefully it will bring you hope and perspective. xo, jan

"Worry never climbed a hill, worry never paid a bill,
Worry never dried a tear, worry never calmed a fear, 
Worry never darned a heel, worry never cooked a meal, 
It never led a horse to water, or did a damn thing you think it "oughter."
