Suppose

“Suppose you were an idiot,

and suppose you were

a member of Congress;

but I repeat myself.”

Poem:

To learn humility and patience
one must first learn obeisance
there is a God today and it is not me
doing His will is really the key

begin by obeying the golden Rule
it is so satisfying to go old school
the long timers share experience, strength and hope
let go and let God, a new way to cope

another great tool is the Serenity Prayer
practicing patience as a daily affair
having the courage to change your mind
completely, totally to God’s world resigned

learn to listen and listen to learn
speak from the heart when it is your turn
know that a loving Higher Power will do for you
miracles, faith, a chance to live life anew

humble is thinking and doing for others
share your gifts with your new band of brothers

Explore, Dream, Discover.

“Twenty years from now

you will be more disappointed

by the things that you didn’t do

than by the ones you did do. So,

throw off the bowlines, sail away

from safe harbor, catch the

trade winds in your sails.

Explore, Dream, Discover.”

God blessed the love birds
always and ever happy
thoughts of each other

sharing and caring as one
God met their needs, not their wants

.

Poem:
.

the one who held the family together
always there despite the weather
feast or famine, healthy or sick
she was there through thin and thick

clinging to her apron strings
she was an angel earning her wings
year after year as we grew
she always did what a mother should do

us from the world she did protect
and when we did wrong she did correct
many good times stored in memory
events supplied by her boundless energy

sadly celebrated only one day a year
I see her reflection in every tear
kudos to mothers everywhere
the world would cease without their care
