    I know you have probably seen this before, but I think it is really uplifting and felt like we could all do with a lift. Don't know who wrote it, but I think it's great!

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will
    When the road you're trudging seems all up hill
    When the funds are low and the debts are high
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
    When care is pressing you down a bit
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer, with its twists and turns
    As everyone of us sometimes learns
    And many a failure turns about
    When he/she might have won had he/she stuck it out
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Success is failure turned inside out
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
    And you never can tell how close you are
    It may be near when it seems so far
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    Thanks for posting this, it's been a while since I read that, and it's something I have always believed in.

    I always want to know, whats around the next bend in the road. ;>]

    This poem truly captures it all. Thanks supergirl for the uplifting message. I think I will write it down. I may need it on one of those "bad" days.

    Once I invented a recipe for "Success Cookies." The first ingredient on the list is "one batch of failed fudge." lol Serriously. I had made fudge earlier that day, and it didn't come out anything like fudge should be, so I used it to make a new kind of cookie. Thanks for bringing back the memory. :)

    Thanks too for keeping the poem bumped so that more of us will see it!
