thought for today

when we learn that
we cannot truly control others,
or things,
we will begin to let go.
we will begin to find freedom.

Ven. Shi Wuling, an American Buddhist nun

Very true.....easier said than done, though.

You are so right about it being easier said that done Deborah. But the closer we get to practicing it, the better our lives will be. Learning that it is ourselves we need to work on and control and not others is a vital lesson for each of us.
