Expectations

"I am thankful for small mercies.

I compared notes with one of my friends who expects everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best,

and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing,
and am always full of thanks for moderate goods.”


-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Thank you, Mary E, for contributing this week's quote.)

About Nancy Polanski
I live in Western New York. I'm retired, after working for 30 years in the Microbiology Labs at our county hospital. My time now is spent mostly with the Karen refugee population in Buffalo, advocating for them, teaching, helping and enjoying them. I've twice traveled to their camps in Thailand and experienced their culture. It seems they have taught me more about life than I have taught them.
