"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday, and all is well"
Good morning! So why worry about tomorrow? I tell you we call ourselves doing well if we just take the day facing us one step at a time, even though the steps may get slower as the day passes on, so what? Just keep on going and by the end of the day youâ€™ll not even remember where you â€œslungâ€� your shoes and hopping around in your barefoot. Okay! Looking out my double windows this morning workers are going in some may, in which a number of them are going over here at the â€œGathering Placeâ€� to join the coffee club. Well no comments about that â€˜cause that first cup of coffee is somewhat related to an alarm clock, when it clicks in whoa!Â
Okay, one morning this week Tri-Bee gets her second cup of coffee. Well why not go out on the porch, get in my rocker. Whoa as I walked out, by the way it was my birthday. Well there is this 12 ft. â€œblack snakeâ€� on my step with his head looking straight at me as to say â€œHappy Birthday.â€� No I donâ€™t know what happened to the coffee, the snake evidently said what he wanted to, coffee and snake both left. Keep smiling.
Weâ€™ll have something to look forward to every morning since school has opened up and the yellow bus will be passing here right on time.
So Barrows Grove Road can no longer be called living in the â€œboon docks.â€� Way back in the early 40â€™s the only traffic on this muddy dirt road was the mailman and the school bus. Well when it rained and the roads were as slick as a greased pole, down here at Coon Creek, one-half the time they would get stuck, no chains on the wheels. They would fine a pole to put under the wheel or once in a blue moon someone would come along with their mule with the gears pulled them out. Itâ€™s just two miles over here to Buckhead. Anyway, so all this is leading back to the quote all that is in the past, in fact times have all together turned around so I cannot keep up with all this up-to-date pay generation, and what? That includes this â€œgood paying job.â€� The Blue check is fading so fast until you can barely make out just what the â€œamount is.â€� But after all these years the interest has grown so and the amount has been worth it all learning to reject and accept what ever. So if it seems like a dark gloomy day you may have just try your best and brighten the corner wherever you are!
