I LOVE THAT WORD 

***********************

 I love the word ' Serene '
It's old-fashioned - that is true
But the meaning of this wondrous word 
Is relevant - where no other word will do .

It means - to have an inner calm
When all about - is stress and strife 
To smile at the beauty others miss
As they carry on their life .

To stand upright in the tempest 
When the world would knock you down
To think of things that lift your spirit 
Not the things that make you frown.

My mother - in her wisdom -
Used to say these words to me .
' No matter what may come against you '
' Stella - Always - Be - Serene '

**********************************

SOMETIMES I SUCCEEDED 
SOMETIMES I DIDN'T .
BUT I ALWAYS TRIED .


***********************************

with love from S.C.Mitchell
