In my weariness and frustration I was trying to decide what I should express gratitude for tonight. Then the words of my favorite poet, Robert Frost, came to mind: "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned in life: It goes on." And so it does. Take a deep breath, count my many blessings, let it go, and as Scarlett O'Hara said in Gone with the Wind, "Tomorrow is another day." I'm grateful for more days, do-overs, repentance, God's mercy, and patient friends and family. Life -- it goes on.
