It stinks and is unpleasant to handle,

    I wonder if there’s a time in each of our lives where we get to sit with clean hands by our mature and thriving garden, enjoying the fruits. I’m gonna pray for that.

      Oh, definitely. But I doubt there’s ever really an all-downhill-from-here-on stage. We’re not made that way. When things go well for too long, we get restless and seek new challenges, even if it’s just to be the best chess player at the retirement home. And new challenges mean new chances to fail.
