Terry's advice to Leona when she lost all of her newsletter content.  Right before vacation!

"It's not the big things that send us to the madhouse, not the loss of love, but the shoelace that breaks when there is no time left." (author unknown)

"Be master of your petty annoyances and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things.  It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out -- it's the grain of sand in your shoe."  (Robert Service, writer, 1874-1958)

"Nothing that grieves us can be called little:  by the eternal laws of proportion a child's loss of a doll and a king's loss of a crown are events of the same size."  (Mark Twain, author and humorist, 1935-1910)

(Terry's note:  Hey, we're good for each other!  Here's what else I sent to Leona:   "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow:  but woe to him that is alone when he falleth, for he hath not another to help him up." (Bible, Ecclesiastes 4:9)
