Adulthood A big “Mazel Tov” to the bride and groom Blushing and sweating, each smiling face Loud, hearty cheers go up across the room Here’s two new contestants for life’s big race! A union in fate’s journey together There will always be problems, there’s no doubt Even when you’re two birds of a feather If you’ve got a spouse, you’ll never run out! Work and home life just add more of the same Now I dare you to add kids to the mix If you’d once enjoyed adult fun and games All free time you had just got the deep six Think you don’t look slick? No need to abort. Adulthood’s a strictly amateur sport! 5/7/16 © Thomas W. Quigley

For Sure! Sometimes you wish life came with an instruction book. You grow up remembering all the mistakes your parents made with you and vow to NEVER DO THAT. And you don't, you make different ones instead. As you say, life has no shortage of problems. It's how we handle those problems that count. Great job here. God Bless, JB
