Third Time is a Charm

Sometimes I wish I could just be satisfied and leave things alone, just the way they are.
And then again, sometimes I am happy that I took a chance.
And then there are those moments that I go all out and put more time and effort into something that looked pretty darn good the way it was. 
This is one of those moments..... 
This was one of those times.....
This was one of those tables....
Because the third time really is a charm!
