Today…

One day we going to be dead
I hope it’s not today
Yesterday may have been tough
But you got through it, anyway

There maybe a time when you reminiss
and believe it was the best
And other times you’d rather forget
Days, that you detest

One thing is certain, the end will come one day
That is why the living, must be lived today

Stress and strains are part of life
Which no one can deny
Even when it seems so bleak
Get up today and try

Don’t think about what bothers you
Because that becomes a habit
Look for something beautiful
Go get it and then grab it

It may be a simple roadside flower
That takes your minds attention
The chirping of a little bird
Just singing without pretention

The sound of children’s laughter
Stirs a warmth in your heart
Go seek the things to change your thoughts
To light from the dark

One day we surely will be dead
It will be full of sorrow
Today is all we really have
We’re not certain of tomorrow

So live today as best you can
And fill it with some pleasure
Then reminiss another day
Of memories made to treasure

It doesn’t matter if other people
Have it all together
They’ll be battling a different storm
A different kind of weather

So let’s count our blessings
For surely we have a few
Get up today and start again
Look with a clearer view

Today is all that’s promised
So grab it with both hands
Only you can walk the path
And in your shoes, stand

If you think they’re feeling tight
And squeezing out the joy
Then it’s time to throw them out
And search for the buoy

The one that gives you better thoughts
Of life’s simple treasures
To live today in happiness
Full of little pleasures

One day we going to be dead
I hope it’s not today
Yesterday may have been tough
But you got through it, anyway

There maybe a time when you reminiss
and believe it was the best
And other times you’d rather forget
Days, that you detest

One thing is certain, the end will come one day
That is why the living, must be lived today

Stress and strains are part of life
Which no one can deny
Even when it seems so bleak
Get up today and try

Don’t think about what bothers you
Because that becomes a habit
Look for something beautiful
Go get it and then grab it

It may be a simple roadside flower
That takes your minds attention
The chirping of a little bird
Just singing without pretention

The sound of children’s laughter
Stirs a warmth in your heart
Go seek the things to change your thoughts
To light from the dark

One day we surely will be dead
It will be full of sorrow
Today is all we really have
We’re not certain of tomorrow

So live today as best you can
And fill it with some pleasure

The one that gives you better thoughts
Of life’s simple treasures
To live today in happiness
Full of little pleasures

Hi, I am a 50 something stay at home mother, grandmother and daughter of elderly (ish) parents. I do however, volunteer twice a week in a charity shop, mind grand children on occasion and of course do any other running around required by extended family. Prior to being a stay at home mum, I have worked at many different jobs, changed career a few times and gathered lots of stories along the way, which I hope you will enjoy as we begin our new relationship. I hope I will be able to entertain, engage and enlighten you, if only a small bit. Life is short, so lets have some fun. Looking forward to getting up and running (metaphorically speaking of course) as I have no intention of running anywhere! Perish the thought!! Thanks for stopping by, Carrie x
