life's sad principle when you can't have what you want want that which you have Jade Celeste :) Brings to mind the words of the song: "If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with." Often...that is true.

My daughter has a sign on her board that says "Comparison is the thief of joy" I can't tell you how many times I have discounted what I have for something else. Nicely done Jade!

I've used it before...when I feel the need to hide a little... I love celestial themes and I've always loved Jade so....seemed appropriate. Hugs

A great advise, although, very difficult to follow, especially, when one's heart belongs to the one you really love! Great writing dear , Jade, hope all is well!

Yes, my dear poet. I understand your post about your heart being with the one you truly love. Sometimes in life that isn't possible. Thank you for your visit. HUGS

Words of wisdom, Eileen. We often have to be satisfied with what we have; the alternatives could easily lead to one jumping from the pan into the fire! Hugs // paul

Yes, Paul...and who likes to get burned. Very wise comment. How have you been? I've been off the Soup for a bit...But I'm BACK! :) Full force.... HUGS....Wisdom comes with years. I guess I'm a slow learner. :( HEE HEE! While there is life, there is hope.

Very wise, sometimes when you love the one you are with they become the person you always dreamed of being with.

Do you know the song, Richard? This is a take on that song, but paraphrased... Thank you for your visits today. Bless you :)
