I sent a lengthy email to a friend, bearing my filled-with-concerns soul, but being the optimist soul that I am, I was pleased to add my resolutions to the concerns also. In reply, my friend said, “You are way too concerned about little things. Stop overthinking!” I needed that bold admonition. Truth and wise counsel…
