    a poem for us

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,...
    Rest! If you must-but never quit.
    Life is queer, with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about
    When he might of won if he'd stuck it out;
    Stick to your task, though the pace seems slows-
    You may succeed with one more blow.

    Success is failure turned inside out-
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-
    And you may never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
    It's when things seem worse that YOU MUSN'T QUIT.

    Remember the Gold is not in the prize it's in the Journey
    life may not be the Party we expected but while we are here we may as well dance

    Wowza Judy, that's the best poem yet. Got a lot going on personally and professionally now. I think I'll keep doing what I'm doing with the resting whenever I can. Especially liked my yoga class yesterday morning! Huggs
