I know there can be beauty in
'the old gnarled, naked' things too.
That even in winter,
the sun shines...sometimes.
I am trying to be one of those optimistic souls
who can weather the worst
that winter and life can dish out,
and still remain bright and optimistic.
I also know that:
Every cloud has a silver lining,
Life is made up of swings and roundabouts,
It will seem better in the morning,
That one door closes and another opens,
It will be alright in the end,
This too will pass.
I try to:
Look on the bright side,
Consider the donut...not the just the hole,
Keep my chin up,
Walk on the sunny side of the street.
it is hard.
So I will adopt my mother's mantra and
Take one day at a time
and try not to complain
(any more than I already have!)
