Changing A Thought Is Like Changing A Tire

Updated on January 6, 2012

Who Would See Life This Way

One blessing after another

When we are driving down the road and out of the blue

We hear a sound that is all too familiar

A soft flumb, flumb, flumb

Then a little louder


Then even a lot louder

Thump !Thump ! Thump !

As we hit the breaks we hear pppfffftttttttt

Turn to shhhhhhhhhhhhhh

At a stop we say I don't believe it

Then we confirm all our fears

We have a flat

How could this of have happened ?

Soon changed to what must of happened ?

Then it is all to clear we have a problem to fix

No one injuried unless we are talking about the poor tire that is beyond repair

So we take all the neccessary steps to change this tire as quickly as possible

So we can get on our merry way

This is an unexpected surprise

Some people would say life couldn't get any worse and I have been cursed

I say it couldn't of happened to a nicer person

If you never got that flat I would never of had a story

Without the story I would of never had a chance to stop you on your journey

I just wanted to say hi

I know soon you will be on your way and may never come back this way

But if I have my way you will always remember what happened here today

      Nell Rose I agree whole heartedly.Life is full of so many surprises It never ceases to amaze me.I often run out of time to do the many things I want.I have been trying to add hours to my day since I was fourteen and I haven't succeeded yet.Either I am a slow learner.I miss the point.I have been going about it the wrong way.I need to be more focused.I have to motivate myself more.I need to listen to others who get everything done.I don't run out of options but so far none have worked.Tomorrow will bring a new day and new hopes and dreams.I want to thank you for your so many visits and comments.I constantly struggle with myself and that leaves little room for everyone else.I stop and think and take a moment every day to thank all the people in my life and God give the strength to find the people that inspire and love and enjoy life.Have a beautiful day and 2012 has the greatest potential.If we can only find a way to give it a chance to bloom or dance.
