How I Get Through My Day: In Mottos and Ridiculous Rhyme
Really its a win and win -
This rhyme I'm talking in.
"What's that? The bills are unpaid,
We've nothing to eat?"
Don't be a Negative Nellie,
Be a Positive Pete.
The children are learning how to get by, and more,
So what if we can't buy them fancy new things?
We should always be happy with what our life brings.
"What's that? The children are sick,
your boss is a pain in the a--?"
Remember my darling,
This, too, shall pass.
Remember that time we though it was surely the end?
When we found out the baby was sick but didn't know why?
And answers weren't pouring down from the sky?
We don't feel that way now, do we my dear?
Things are less murky, even if they aren't perfectly clear.
Our family is stronger, healthier, and all the rest
God doesn't give us more than we can handle, you know
He has a plan for us, though it won't always show.
So what if it looks like everyone's doing better than us?
I'm sure that they aren't, that they've just as much fuss.
We won't know unless we walk a mile in their shoes
What happens to us and how to react.
The only thing we can chose is how to act.
Grab our life by the horns and get back up on that horse
We must take charge of our lives and direct their course.
The children are happy, they smile and dance,
They haven't unpatched holes in their pants,
not money, or success and what they bring.
As long as we're getting by, we're fine.
Now roll over, dear,
I'll scratch your back and you scratch mine.
