“GRATITUDE!” a poem – after a morning of lost cell phones and dreams! Sunday: 19 August 2018 for: my Sweetie, who always reminds me to smile! 🙂
I accidentally – kicked the cell phone!! and lost it for a while,
BUT, NOW – I-found-IT-behind-the-bureau; so-now, again, I smile!
It was – that-special-replacement-phone! For-the-one-I-lost –
So, NOW! I-got-a-real-great-phone! It-was the one I tossed!
Well, ACTUALLY – I knocked (kicked) it! with-my-foot – across the room!!
And IT WAS LOST – for a while – but, please-drop the “gloom & doom,”
‘Cause NOW! I-got-it-back, all right, and – I-should-a-know-THAT ALL,
GRATITUDE! It is THE word,
We might avoid (pause) BUT THAT’S ABSURD,
For, being glad and grateful,
Can brush away the hateful,
And, even if the clouds seem dark,
The SUN SHINES THROUGH, so NEVER park,
FOR-THINGS’LL WORK OUT –
DO (THE) HAPPY FACE!*
- It’s been shown, time and again, that people who are glad, even when things appear disastrous, (1) live longer; (2) are healthier over-all; (3) make more money than their “grumpy” counterparts; (4) have more friends; and (5) report that life is positive, almost 50% more of the time than complainers and fault-finders!! TRY GLAD! You might be… you-know! … glad! 🙂 -whoopee!
