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 Up and its 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 layed 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 .
