Everybody carries trouble but how you lug it is what counts

 My Annie called this morning and said, "I gotta get out of that ranch cause the boss is real bad, and my teeth needs fixin' and my rifle's gettin' old, and Harry ran off with my best friend, and why do I have all this trouble, and I tells her everyone carries some, but what you do with it is what counts so you can soar wisely on eagle's wings.

There's lots of trouble in this world, even some in Cloutierville, and more comin' every day so what we do about them is what we're all about.  When you carry it well, you can be a channel of peace for yourself and everyone.

Now Ted told me his last night, he's got dandruff, ingrown toenails, and a cold sore comin' up on his lip and he's complainin' about all that pain and problems cause the girls notice and he can't get a date.  And I says, "You're complainin' doesn't do all that good.  Now I told you before there's others worse off than you, but that's not the end of the story.  Each person has problems for sure, and some of the small ones seem like they hurt just as much.  And all of us is different in what we got and how we handle, so we can't compare.  But it's you, you gotta worry bout, not those other folks.  How you handle yours, helps you the one to grow.

Ted and Alice, they got trouble, like they see it so.  Granny says it's everyone these days.  Still when you think that life has boxed you down and you can't get up to fight no more, then there's always that Big Hand to pick you up and that's all you need to carry your trouble and lug it anywhere and with it you can soar on eagle's wings with wisdom.
