I found this on a Christmas plaque:
THREE WISE WOMEN
Would have asked for directions,
arrived on time,
helped deliver the baby,
cleaned the stable,
made a casserole,
brought practical gfits,
there would be
PEACE ON EARTH!
Perhaps it's a bit facetious, but it makes a certain sense. I think of my women friends and can see each of them in these "Three Wise Women." My friends see a problem, step in without fanfare or ceremony, and take care of it. All of this is done with no thought of gratitude or reward or recognition.
Joy for today: having many "Three Wise Women" as friends.
