Good And Bad Things Happen
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Good things happen so we appreciate
Bad things so we don't cooperate.
bad don't cooperate,
good appreciate.
Appreciate the good things,
Berate and try to ignore the bad things

Where've you been?

I know you can ask me the very same question. This place is always home. Anyways, I had to peek in and see your life lessons poetry.

It's so easy to take things for granted isn't it? Especially the little things.

Great poem Barb - as always.

same here

It is about 34 degrees here. Shortly after I stepped outside this morning, my face started burning and my fingers were turning numb. I had to rush back in to finish covering myself before I left.

There may not be a winter storm approaching over here, but this weather is no joke. Stay safe!
