Jack’s Winning Words 12/14/18 
“It will be alright, and if not, it will soon be over.”  (Unknown)  “It’ll work out” is a phrase I often use when talking with someone about a problem.”  Experience has shown me that it’s true.  Facing up to a problem is a first step in arriving at a solution, often unforeseen.  Another step is realizing that a 3-minute egg takes 3 minutes.  The French say, “Il faut donner du temps au temps.” Give time to time…Don’t rush it; it’ll work out (usually)   ;-)  Jack

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  Time does have a way of solving most problems.

FROM FACEBOOK LIZ:  it is not all right to write “alright.”

FROM LBP:  The hosts of a podcast I listen to have this philosophy. They identify an end time for stressful things that is easy to relate to. A big presentation to give? "It will all be over by dinner time." A big project in the fall? "it will all be over by Thanksgiving" Not everything has an obvious end-time, of course, but when it does it can be helpful to put it in perspective.
