We Have Done It Again


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.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on July 30, 2021:

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.

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on July 27, 2021:

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

"This is part of living." We better keep on finding ways to cope. Your healthy attitude of staying happy is a great help. Take care and be safe.
