“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you… If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.” ~ Unknown

There’s an enormous Catalpa tree I pass everyday to and from the office. There’s not a single day I pass her that I don’t think about Angie Bliss Fanning and the 2-Pony Ranch with two beautiful Catalpa trees in the front yard. Today, my UK Catalpa was flowering. I stopped to take a good look. I thought of Angie, the 2-Pony, and the decades of love shared among friends around those front-yard Catalpas. I’ve had glorious friendships in my life, and many of them trace their roots back to Angie. Like passing this Catalpa, there’s not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for her.
