Doing What We Have To Do

Updated on December 16, 2014

Sometimes It Isn't Easy

Life is like a huge ball

Being tossed in every direction

We bounce high sometimes

Other times we just roll along

Even the small bounces will take us to somewhere new

We slide over the grass that is smooth

Take our chances on gravel

Where the sharp edges could harm us

In the wind we travel fast

Gaining speed and lifting us higher

When it rains we get washed

Unless we are sitting in the dirt

They we get pretty messy

Through it all we have made it

Each time enjoying the purpose which we were made

When our life gets busy

Just hang in there

Taking one day at a time

We know it will get slow hopefully sooner than later

Then we can relax

Many people are constantly juggling work and school

Trying to pay their bills and learn more to better themselves

Other people may be working two jobs just to make ends meet

While parents struggle raising their children with work schedules and doctors appointments

Young couples working hard saving up for their first house or marriage

Unfortunately some people deal with minor to major health issues

Facing new problems and struggles every day

I am blessed

To be here to share my day and my life with you

Fortunately I have more good days than bad

I have had my own battles in the past

Now I can relax and appreciate how hard I have worked

Facing each situation

A little different than the next

Rising and falling

Enjoying the greatest pleasures life has to offer

Finding time to do the things I love

Enjoying each moment as it comes

Looking back and reflecting on the good and the bad

Now looking ahead to a bright future

Deciding new choices

Taking the road less traveled

Listening to my heart

Beating quietly at this very moment

Where all things begin and end

Appreciating all I have as long as I can

      Gypsy Rose Lee I am happy just to be at home off from work and enjoying my day. Sometimes writing most of the time thinking and the rest of the time sleeping. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your thoughts. Have a great night.

      I've always felt that it's good to appreciate that which you have and not to try to reach for the moon when you can't afford it. The days I love the most are those when I can sit back and be creative and share with others leaving behind appreciation and smiles. Also days when I don't have to spend a penny and I can put some aside for a rainy day.
