Wednesday Wisdom

You say the little efforts that I make
Will do no good:
They never will prevail
To tip the hovering scale where
Justice swings in the balance.

scales of justice[1]I do not think I ever thought they would.
But I am prejudiced beyond debate
In favor of my right
To choose which side shall feel
the stubborn ounces of my weight.

    The little efforts I make to visit three elderly women (one is 99!) truly make a difference in my life and, hopefully, in theirs. Sometimes it is in very small ways…playing Scrabble with one and listening to the same stories over and over again.
