Be The Best of Whatever You Are

Be The Best of Whatever You Are- Douglas Malloch

If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill,
Be a scrub in the valley-but be
The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,
And some highway happier make;
If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass
But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew,
There's something for all of us here,
There's big work to do, and there's lesser to do,
And the task you must do is the near.

If you can't be a highway then just be a trail,
If you can't be the sun be a star;
It isn't by size that you win or you fail
Be the best of whatever you are!

Be Happy. God Bless.

Wait For The Right Time

Wait For The Right Time-Buddha

If it is not truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is not truthful and helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and helpful, wait for the right time.

Be Happy. God Bless.

Keep Sweet

Keep Sweet- Strickland Gillilan

Don't be foolish and get sour when things don't just come your way-
Don't you be a pampered baby and declare, "Now I won't play!"
Just go grinning on and bear it;
Have you heartache? Millions share it,
If you earn a crown, you'll wear it-
Keep sweet.

Don't go handing out your troubles to your busy fellow-men-
If you whine around they'll try to keep from meeting you again;
Don't declare the world's "agin" you,
Don't let pessimism win you,
Prove there's lots of good stuff in you-
Keep sweet.

If your dearest hopes seem blighted and despair looms into view,
Set your jaw and whisper grimly, "Though they're false, yet I'll be true."
Never let your heart grow bitter;
With your lips to Hope's transmitter,
Hear Love's songbirds bravely twitter,
Keep sweet.

Bless your heart, this world's a good one, and will always help a man;
Hate, misanthropy, and malice have no place in Nature's plan.
Help your brother there who's sighing.
Keep his flag of courage flying;
Help him try-'twill keep you trying-
Keep sweet.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.

Make A Memory

A poem that will help you to think that you must spend quality time with your children those who are your real possession.

Make a Memory-Elaine Hardt

Make a memory with your children, Spend some time to show you care;
Toys and trinkets can't replace those Precious moments that you share.

Money doesn't buy real pleasure, It doesn't matter where you live;
Children need your own attention, Something only you can give.

Childhood's days pass all too quickly, Happy memories all too few;
Plan to do that special something, Take the time to go or do.

Make a memory with your children, Take the time in busy days;.
Have some fun while they are growing, Show your love in gentle ways.

Be Happy. God Bless.

When Night Is Almost Done

When Night Is Almost Done -Emily Dickinson

 WHEN night is almost done,
And sunrise grows so near
That we can touch the spaces,
It ’s time to smooth the hair

And get the dimples ready,
And wonder we could care
For that old faded midnight
That frightened but an hour.

Be Happy. God Bless.

You Only Get What You Give

You Only Get What You Give - Author Unknown

It's a universal law:

You have to give before you get.

You must plant your seeds before you reap the harvest.

The more you sow, the more you'll reap.

In giving to others, you'll find yourself blessed.

The law works to give you back more than you have sown.

The giver's harvest is always full.

Those that obtain have little.

Those who scatter have much.

Nature does not give to those who will not spend.

Be Happy. God Bless. -image source
