 Reflections of My Heart

Winning ღ KKD ღ


Winning isn't everything,
so the race is what counts.
Its how we play the game
of life that amounts

To go thru life
passing all that walk this land
Is not near as important
as stopping to lend a hand

What is given
returns ten fold
This little proven fact
is of pure gold

So love your fellow man
and give what is needed
This little golden rule of life
should always be heeded

~ Poets Note ~
In Girl Scouts we learned
When the great recorder comes
to write against your name
He writes not that you won or lost
but how you played the game.

James Taylor
You've Got a Friend

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
 I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
