Finding Little Things That Make Us Happy
We have met some challenges in the past
That has made us think
Question and push us to the limit
Each time we had no choice
Work through our tough and difficult times
Searching for the best possible outcome
It was not easy
Doing so cut into our time and our savings
If it was car trouble
We had to get our car fixed
Health problems with my wife or I
More doctor appointments and stress
The work problems that keep us on our toes
From schedule changes that made us leave early
New difficulties with co-workers and added job responsibilities
We keep on finding new ways
Pulling together when most people pull apart
Especially when tempers flare
It is so easy to watch things get out of hand
Then burn faster than a pile of old dried wood
People say this is life
Well I can't argue this is part of living
We both keep on trying to get things back to the way they were
Sharing more time together and making more wonderful dreams come true
If it is a lazy afternoon drive
A quick lunch out
Laying in bed talking
Watching an old movie we haven't seen
Each thing creates a love
That keeps growing and never gets old

Niks Some people are great Super Stars and can easily take the leading role. I am more like a supporting character that helps other people shine. Where do you stand? Maybe you are a good combination of both. I think a lot of thoughts and carry them out to some degree. I feel it makes me a better person and I try to give back to other people in return. There are many times I struggle and outright fail. Spelling is one area. Thanks to Grammarly I can look better than I actually am. My thoughts are a mix of old and new. Always progressing on to the next best thing. Like a progressive slot machine. I am so close to the big payout. Then again I just have to wait. The good thing is I put in time instead of money. If I had to use the money I would have been flat broke a million times already.I am pretty sure to say that I have gone in the wrong direction. I am lucky it makes for an interesting poem or story. Thank you for taking the time and reading my poems. it means the world to me. Have a great day. Rainy here maybe it is sunny and cool and awesome there.

BRENDA ARLEDGE Putting our heads together works even though sometimes they feel like they have been slammed like two football players. Ouch, that smarts. My wife and I do get along great. Sometimes she is the leader and I am the follower. I think we have been through so much we never want to feel that way again. 4 days and keep the comments coming. Thanks for the lift. I felt like I just got an Uber. (lol) Nothing to worry about. I leave the driving up to someone else. It is so nice to have good friends.

I love the way you two work together.
Problems happen every day.
We just got to do our best & accept whatever happens.

Demas W Jasper It is so hard to look on the bright side when you are on the dark side. Then once on the bright side again it is easier to stay here than go on another road trip. I hope you and your family are doing well. Good wishes are always fun to share. Off to a good day of work. Where one day it will lead to retirement. Then more time to expand on everything I only touch upon now. Thank you for reading and thinking of me. It is always nice to see a friend. 3 days ago from Today's America and The World Beyond.

Dora Weithers Even I was to put to the test. Then when I thought it was over another test. I realized how much I hate tests. Feeling great and I can't wait to spread the news. Hope everything is looking bright for you. Lots of rain here. How are you doing? Life can throw us in a loop and make us dizzy real fast. I didn't like it one bit. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Life doesn't get any better than that. 3 days and happy to respond.

Oh, that that might be true for everyone, amen.
