    Life's Tug of War

    Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind
    Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind
    Life can be blissful and happy and free
    Life can put beauty in the things that you see
    Life can place challenges right at your feet
    Life can make good of the hardships we meet
    Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin
    Life can reward those determined to win
    Life can be hurtful and not always fair
    Life can surround you with people who care
    Life clearly does offer its ups and downs
    Life's days can bring you both smiles and frowns
    Life teaches us to take the good with the bad
    Life is a mixture of happy and sad

    SO...

    Take the life that you have and give it your best
    Think positive be happy let God do the rest
    Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet
    Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet
    To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall
    Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all
    Take the love that you're given and return it with care
    Have faith that when needed it will always be there
    Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see
    Take life's simple pleasures let them set your heart free
    The idea here is simply to even the score
    As you are met and faced with Life's Tug of War.

    Re: Life's Tug of War

    I just decided on something new and refreshing to start here by looking up the very last page on a long-ago posted thread to see what I would find.

    I found this gem that I, most likely, received in an email a long time ago. It's a good one, I think.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise
