A leaded balloon will never rise.
Raindrops always bring over-cast skies.

Life calls the shots, your hand is dealt.
You straighten your shoulders and tighten your belt.

You daily go forward, you can't give up.
Bad breaks, good breaks, they fill your cup.

Some days you win and wear a bright smile.
Some days are bad, you'd like to re-dial.

You stumble at times on feet unsure.
You struggle to understand, you daily endure.

Life is a puzzle from beginning to end.
Some people break...the strong learn to bend.

You accept your fate and what each day brings.
There is no answer to so many things.

Birthday candles increase yet you stand your ground.
Your eyes grow dim, your ears don't hear every sound.

Little things seem so precious and special now.
So you just quit worrying about the why and the how!

Someone greater than you or me
has planned it all, down to the nth degree!!!

Tank you both so kindly! I think I am kind of getting things understood a bit better now that I am seeing everything through a 'different' light (God's)
