Is Life Just A Bowl of Cherries?

Nope, sorry to say it's not. My mother who is about to celebrate her 91st birthday in July told me a saying one time. "It's a great life if you don't weaken, but then who wants to be strong?" I was always puzzled at that until I got older and now I think I realize what she meant. I found this vintage linen pouch at an antique store a while back. It's such a simple item, so simplistic in its structure, yet it brings me such joy to have it. So when life doesn't seem to be handing out cherries (like today) I get this out and just look at it, contemplate the simpler things in life, and encourage myself to be a stonger person!
