some old adages one can only learn thru experience:
1. a chapter can be too short
2. an absence really is a presence
3. a heartache is a mass of its own
but one that i’ve learned to be false thru experience….
4. no sense crying over spilled milk
no, friends. there is sense crying over spilled milk.
any nursing mother would concur. that takes some energy and time and effort. and the baby screams when there is no milk
so to whomever said that …. perhaps you never made milk. perhaps you weren’t there to console the baby that was waiting for that milk. thats my guess. someone else made milk for you and you devalued it and never made it for yourself.
[ side note: maybe thats why the milkman got so popular anyhow. he seemed to understand. ]
so go ahead now…
cry over your spilled milk.
