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.
"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."
