LIFE IS TOO SHORT
Nancy and Wendy were quibbling
about when they were going to meet.
Then there was lively discussion
about where they were going to eat.
By the end of the conversation
tempers began to flare.
Nancy fumed and blurted out
"let's not go anywhere!"
They stopped talking to one another.
Several months slid by,
and two old friends grew distant.
Neither could say just why.
We should be wiser as we get older
I do believe, and I exhort:
Let's not sweat the small stuff....
Life is just TOO short.
We all know of friends and family that are estranged. Perhaps it has even affected you. Oftentimes, when you ask about the cause of the estrangement, the parties can't even recall!
