Had I more quickly realized just who they were,
I would have shown them more respect.
Had I tried harder to fathom their brilliant minds,
I would have taken more of their teachings to heart.
Had I more clearly understood the purpose of their being,
I would have more vigorously tried to assist them.
They were truly honorable; I was sadly prejudiced.
They were well informed; I was grossly ignorant.
They were totally unwearying; I quickly, gave up.
Have an Heavenly Anniversary
And know that I am finally getting it.
Love & Respect
