I'm usually easy going.  As I grow older, I learn to see better days ahead, the sun always shines the next day. Tomorrow is always a new beginning.

Children bring a lot of the secrets of being happy everyday.  Do my best with them as soon as I rise up, when I walk by the way, and when I sit , and when I lie down reflecting about each day fulfilled.

Tomorrow again. Better days ahead.
