It Is earlier Than I Would Like


We All Have To Do What We Must Do

Go to work and provide for our families

It is nice to have two days off

Where my wife and I spend more time together

Not having to be apart for eight hours

We might be doing chores and errands

The things we didn't have time for during our busy week

It's o.k. as long as we do it together

Our jobs take us in different directions

I am a short-order cook and my wife is a customer care professional

We each chose our profession

In some cases, I think our professions chose us

I go to work and love my job

I look around me and most if not all co-workers don't feel the same way

My work is only a small part of who I am

Even after the busiest of days

Where everything went well

I feel there is something there

That I want to accomplish so much more

When I turn to write

It gives me a different sense of accomplishment

Not one of monetary value

One of great pride and ownership

The feeling of dedication and admiration

As I blend them both together

They in many different ways explain what I do and can not do

My struggles and my setbacks

My accomplishments and my greatest feelings of joy

It is in these writings that I see a bigger and better picture

One that we all live

We all try to make some sense of life

We carry on

Spending time within our own families

Sharing times with our friends

To love and be loved

Then there will come a time

Our story will end

Only to see someone else's story begin

Peggy Woods Life is full of so many surprises each with an endless array of outcomes. I love to have such a good time not doing anything special makes it even more wonderful. Thanks for coming along for the journey. Plenty more to come where that came from. Have a sweet morning. Thank you so much.

Many days pass with usual activities, but you have highlighted what counts most. Sharing time with family and friends and helping others is at the top of the list.

Ann Carr I spend a lot of time trying to make the most of every moment. My wife shows me how I can do so much more. Then I go back to the drawing board and try even harder. Once again she shows me things I have missed. She is really good at multi-tasking. I am not so good. I can focus on one topic and enjoy and really drive my passion through the roof. Then in the next moment be moved in a whole another direction. My wife can take one and the other and still have an open hand to cook tonight's supper. I forget to eat. I forget to sleep. All I can think of what is on my mind and it is hard to let those thoughts pass. I am so fortunate to have my wife as a guide. She keeps me balanced. So when I can I show her all my attention. We both accomplish more together than we ever could alone. I appreciate all your comments and support. Writing shows my faults and my weaknesses. Overtime I can learn to get better. From all the hubbers who keep on giving. Long after the day is over. I think ninety percent of the hubbers are women. Because I can barely keep my eyes open and hubbers are nonstop. Have a peaceful and awesome night.

Yes we just keep looking after each other and doing our best. Writing does give us a great outlet in so many ways. It helps vent emotions, especially in times like these!
