…especially when the one bit of wisdom that might have helped one change perspective comes late in the day. This is another one of those cosmic jokes that I am able to understand when I slow down long enough to pull back and look at the bigger picture… the song ” From A Distance” by Dahling Diva Ms. Bette Midler comes to mind right about now.

On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know…....that obstacles are not opposing you, but merely and gently re-routing you.
