Or as Robert Burns says in To a Mouse
“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ menI love taking pictures of my little one, but he's just not at an age where he will sit still and pose. The other day I decided it was time to take a new portrait so I dressed my son up, did his hair, and arranged with my neighbor to take a picture on his beautiful front porch. I even packed a pocket full of fruit snacks to use as portrait bribes. Despite all these preparations, I still ended up with a mid-chew nearly perfect picture.
Gang aft a-gley.”
But you know what? That's okay. I've learned to be okay with my nearly perfect picture, my nearly perfect life. It's hard and stressful when things don't go as planned, but as a man I look up to, Joseph B. Wirthlin, recently taught me: "Come what may, and love it." Things aren't always perfect, and that's okay. Life's a journey to enjoy not a destination to dream about, right? Come what may, I love it.
