Sometimes Silly, but Nonetheless True

Carol A. Hand

We all make choices in life
I’m no exception.
Should I focus on fear and enmity
Or peace and affection?

Should I greet the day with to-do lists
The moment that I rise
Or take the time to reflect on beauty
And be open to surprise?

It’s true I have little control
Over what others choose to do
But on this lovely morning it’s my choice
To send my best wishes to you.

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.
