Joy In The Pain

This journey we call life.

One day we are living life to the fullest, the next, life slams us into a rock.

How do you handle when life throws a curve ball?

It would be easy to become a lemon taster believe me.

Every morning you have a choice, to get moving or stay in bed.

To become bitter or learn to deal with the pain.

Finding happiness does not come over night.

This journey is full of peaks and valleys, you learn to appreciate each one.

No one is promised a tomorrow, so let loved ones know how much you love them.

Hug the kids extra tight, tell them you are proud of them.

Plan play dates in the park this summer, they are only young once.

Be silly and blow bubbles and try to pop them together.

Some parents only have precious memories left.

One day your child is born, the next, they are graduating and moving.

Our parents raise us, now we are caring for them, how the tides change.

Enjoy the beauty of each new day and take the time to smile today.

Life is full of struggles, sometimes we feel we can’t breath.

Take a deep breath, and take another sip of your coffee.

Life is a treasure waiting to happen.
