Under Fire

Updated on April 13, 2018

When Superman Isn't Around

We are here on the ground

Finding a day to day struggle

Even the little things that become a hassle

There is much we can do

To keep our spirits up

Pull ourselves together

As if we were made out of cotton

Put each piece in place

One sinks into the other

After awhile we see some progress

Things can get messy

We are not perfect and never claimed to be

Look around and see what we have

Not just all the material things in our life

The people that make up are our family

Don't forget our friends

Each person has their own faults

We love them just the same

So as I go to work and try to think of ways to stretch my last dollar

I also know I am not alone

There are times when work becomes a hassle

There are also those times where work becomes my haven

Where I can do my job and meet people who I have known for years

I receive comfort and friendship

Will everything change drastically tomorrow

I doubt it very much

I do know each day is better than the one that came before

Because we are smarter

We are wiser than just a few minutes ago

As we take on life

Life gives back

In so many areas we fail to notice

Over time things will surface

The job that I do today

Will help me

Leading me to a better and brighter tomorrow

So for all those who are struggling with issues they have not solved

I hear you

I am giving my all time best and so can you

      Dora Weithers I am not afraid to make a mistake because I know it is only a matter of time until the mistakes become less and less. I wish more people could spend the time to offer assistance to so many other people when they are in need of help. We could create a network of problem solving techniques that can be used over and over again. They can be revised and bring about real joy in the toughest times of our lives. We all can be working models for a better day and a better life. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Even if my words stop at the end of this line my gratitude and warm hugs will always continue. Have a beautiful day.

      John Hansen When things don't go as expected we have to figure out a new way. Sometimes it takes time, creativity and patience. I always look back and say no matter what has happened in my life I have made it here. There were many times I didn't have the answer and little by little it worked out. In the end I became a better person because of it. I know things will get better for you too. I can make suggestions and think of ways you might not of thought of. Feel free to e-mail me and I have a few of my own problems that need to be fine tuned. To feel better I take a walk in nature and relax it sets my mind free. Then sometimes a new idea comes to me. Thank you for sharing and caring. Have a beautiful Sunday.

      Michael-Milec If we could be more understanding and appreciate other people more often than complaining what we don't like. I think we would all be better off. Working together on solutions instead of fighting. Thank you for reading and sharing. May you have a blessed Sunday.

      We have been sent to this world in order to contribute a unique share in creating what ever is our vocation,- not two individuals has the same assignment. My belief is that everything I do is perfectly done, because it's my best . Constantly improving, learning , being content and blessed in various aspects.
