A thought to begin each day (poem)


As you go about each day
Take some time to laugh and play
Sing a song and tell some jokes
Share a tale and be kind to folks
Learn a little and care a lot
Don’t be envious of what others got
Love your parents and sister too
And the life you lead will be good to you

    Well, this little poem really says a lot. I truly do love my Mom and my sister, but I've always thought my sister was the favourite, well she is. I just have to get over it.

When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
