All we do is pass through here, the best way we can
Try not to focus on the disappointments in others, dear one. Your expectations are high and hard to meet, even for you. In the end, what’s most important is that you didn’t disappoint yourself. Focus on gratitude; the robin as it sits on the fig tree branch, the lesson in making Greek cookies, the visits from your loving daughter and an old friend, the affection from your husband, and the care you are able to give to those in need. You are loved, friend. I love you.
