I Twist And Turn All That I Have Learned

Updated on November 12, 2014

It's So Much Fun

Look at today with special enthusiasm and curiosity

Don't be like other people who fall into bad habits by saying

Today is the same old thing

It's not and how can it ever be

Your body is constantly changing

You might have a regular routine and it may seem familiar

We all have to sleep and eat that's a given

Going to work pays the bills and keeps a roof over our heads

My father use to say that often

Doing the constant never ending chores around the house

Keeps our life neat and clean and organized

Without those three things our life could take a turn for the worse

In our free time we may relax and read watch t.v. go on line

For some it is sports and enjoying all the excitement and the thrill

Going to church or special groups or clubs that we enjoy so much

Going to the gym or exercising at home

So that we may stay in shape with a healthy body and sound mind

Most of our other time is easily spent

Doing errands or helping out family members

Everyone but not limited to husbands and wives

Our children including our pets

Closest friends ,coworkers and neighbors

So when we look at a few days grouped together

It is not uncommon to think it's just another day

Nothing special

Same old same old

What we clearly forget

Is those times that we try to erase from our mind

When we are sick and at home and just can't wait to be better

Doctors visits and hospital stays

Wakes and funerals of all the ones we love and have lost

These things are never really talked about

We do think about often our vacations and our days off

When we make the most of the time we have

Enjoying our time away from work and the daily pressures

How about those crazy busy times that we don't remember

They are like you holding the clicker and going fast forward right through a commercial

Not one but two or three

No more than that eight, nine and ten

We don't see it so how can we remember it

We are so busy

We are lucky just to have enough time to breathe

Well that is my life in fish bowl

Adding in car accidents and a few work injuries to keep me on my toes

All the holidays and birthday parties over the years

A couple of new car purchases

Renting and finally buying a house

I call my own

Which is really a play on words

I pay the bank and the bank lets me live there

Till the day my mortgage is paid off

Which is a lifetime away

Leaving on a good note

How could I forget weddings, anniversaries and all those times out to eat

Then of course life would not be complete

Without the quiet times at home

To top it all off

Those incredible times where two lovers share the joys of the world

More in action than in words

I have been blessed in so many ways

it is hard for me to keep track of one day let alone years

That have flown by faster than a flock of birds

Just two feet in front of us a minute ago

Now out of sight

Good morning to those who aren't awake yet

Good evening to those who are eating

Good night to those who are sleeping

May your day be one hundred times mine

Greater and lovelier in every way

Filled with all the excitement of three life times

      This is a nice, straight talking poem that is filled with good thoughts and keeps me smiling from start to finish. I think you have a great idea -- filling one lifetime with enough good experiences sufficient for three lifetimes. God bless you times three:)
