When To Take A Step Back And Then Another

Updated on May 9, 2013

Then Race Forward As Fast As You Can

When I feel tired and think I don't have any energy left

I reach into my bag of tricks and check to see if I have any thing that I can use

Anything up my sleeve

If there is a will there is a way

If there is a force to reckon with it's Kj force

She is a fellow hubber who has her own health struggles

Who no matter what has stopped to help me out when I felt down

Now this is my way to turn her day around

Kj force you are getting a big hug from me

Trying to cheer you up

It doesn't stop there

I can run and jump and make all kinds of noise

To let you know how much energy I can give you

There isn't a morning that doesn't go by

I fail to thank the big guy

But just recently I had a long talk

I asked him for a little extra something

For a friend who is in need

He wouldn't tell me what you would get

But be on the look out for a feeling that is out of this world

Like a cortizone shot that makes you feel no pain

A nice massage from head to toe

All the vitamins and minerals that Hercules needs

To give you some extra strength

Helping you the only way I know how

With a few good words and my hat tipped in your direction

Where Maine might be a little far away

But with the right connection

Nothing is impossible in life as you know

Seeing you smile is all I try to do

So you can enjoy the pool and sun

Then laugh at me once again

      Life sometimes can take so much out of us. Vitamins and minerals needed on a daily basis.

      Nellieanna It is hard when we sense another writer is having trouble.Each time I visit the HubPages when I leave I feel it was time well spent. I drift away knowing I am the one who learned the most.One more of lifes lessons carefully weaved into the words of another.I smile,laugh or sometimes wipe the tears from my eyes.But unlike t.v. I have actively taken part challanging my thoughts ,opinions and future decisions.Hoping to make better choices and more friends from all over the world.Now that is hard to beat any day of the year.My only problem is I am trying to split myself like an atom and be a million places at once.I haven't learned how but I am coming closer and closer.Seeing you makes my eyes shine.My wife and my cat Charlette are all here to give their suport too.They are my silent partners making sure I don't get out of line and write my best all the time.Thanx so much for reading and caring.
