In the race to be better and best,
we sometimes loose sight of just being;
The best portion of a good man's life,
his little nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
May it be said
when the sun sets on my life,
many of my dreams came true
and I made a difference in the lives of others.
These words stuck in my mind. Even at this time of my life I am learning. I have started over again and have tried to put the past behind me. Don't want to look back anymore but ahead. Ahead may not be all I want it to be but you have to settle for what you can get. No one can make you happy but you yourself. Don't give some else the power to make you sad or happy, that power belongs to you and you alone. When you come to my age, just waking up to a new day, opening your eyes to all that is dear and familiar and able to take that first step out of bed makes the day ahead full of promise. Things can change during the day but we gain strength in the morning when we seek the Lord and we then know whatever the day brings he walks with us throughout the day.
