On worrying...

One lovely bit of wisdom I've gained from the letters: worrying is pointless, because everything always works out. Usually not in ways you expected it to, but it really does always work out somehow. I don't want to sound too optimistic, but I've seen it play out over & over.
--People worry about their kids changing schools when they move, but their kids always find new friends & do just fine.
--They're unemployed and they worry about finding a job, but then something comes along--they get a job that's even better than the one they lost, or make a career change and do something new & exciting, or go back to school and train for a better job.
--They worry about things that never happen (i.e. my grandpa's habit of sleeping in his clothes, ready to go in case of emergency...)

So don't worry!
