I loved this poem. It openly expresses how we can shift towards a happier lens as we go about our daily life—- because life will often not go our way. True that there will always be something good in everyday :)

No matter how black the sky seems, or how blue we feel, there's positivity to be found if one looks closely eno9ugh Nishu. One has to see the brighter side of any ill omen. If we try hard enough, we'll see it otherwise life would not be worth living. Laugh at our mishaps and compose a limerick (mentally) and a few lines will quickly combat the blues and the day becomes brighter and shorter: happier and more enjoyable! I've had a few such as you describe - lately - but the clouds have thinned and my attitude and approach has brightened. Thanks for reminding me I must look later to see what my day finally turns out to be like! Of late, I've had better and some much worse, but I'm still here enjoying my life with the "One" who means more to me than life itself. Just remember, burnt toast is good for you. The 'carbon' you'll scrape off,(don't waste it!) is good for your digestion! (So I'm told! Lol!) Fondest regards Pauline and Denis. PS: My Sister's 87th Birthday today! Having spoken with her earlier, she's doing well but like me, has lost many friends. Her husband John is 1 year younger than me, with his birthday one day before mine! Lots to be thankful for. Ciao Denis aka Rhymer.

102nd Roy's Challenge what do we do in heaven when we're dead?(What's in Heaven?) -- by Member: Roche Rosos, Philippines -- added: 9/15/2019 1:37:22 PM

Betty Janko said:



Dear Roche, these are the eternal questions posed with every religion and in most peoples minds. But the best way ... try not to worry too much but live for now, and then leave it in Gods hands. I have missed you and hope you are well dear friend. *****, Betty

A letter from your pet in heaven ( 102nd Challenge ) -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 9/15/2019 1:17:31 AM

Betty Janko said:



Dearest Westly, a perfect thought on how we connect with our pets after they leave us. I would love to think of our special friends somehow having a place in heaven just waiting for us. Such a sweet poem and it brought me to tears thinking of the love I shared with so many of my pets. Kenneth's title has certainly sparked your imagination and you have given us quite a few great entries. So happy to see you sharing your thoughts dear friend. *****, Betty

Betty Janko said:



Dear Nishu, I should love to be in such a heaven with no mundane chores! It was penance enough for me today with vacuuming, dusting and cleaning the bathroom. My back thinks of that as Hell on earth! Lol! Loved your description of a perfect Heaven and the only thing missing is some chocolate while you rest in peace! Hope you are well dearest friend. *****, Betty

A Postcard poem -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 9/18/2019 2:07:28 AM

Denis Barter said:



Postcards are almost extinct today Westly. A sign of the times as "progress" and the 'texting' fad, slowly makes it obsolete. I have a large collection of postcards, spanning many years, that are great reminders of people, places and events, which no mobile phone can ever match, I cannot remember seeing any postcards in the stores of late, and yes, the postage is ridiculously high. They're also great reminders of folks we once knew, and used postcards to keep in touch with one another. Surely a reminder of the past. Thanks Westly. Ciao Denis. Aka Rhymer.

A Potatoe Chip -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 9/18/2019 1:42:41 AM

Denis Barter said:



Hi Westly, and I must agree with what you say - though I prefer the 'plain' potato chip to the flavoured ones. But once a bag is started? It's very difficult to stop until the bag is empty! Maybe that's why they don't make big bags of chips? We can add a few pounds of extra weight all too easily. Even easier as we grow older! Thanks to your poem, the lowly potato chip is now centre stage! Fondest. Denis aka Rhymer.
