Even In Our Blessings


Even in our blessings
In what we have prayed for
And have come to realization
There are problems-

Life rarely gives us things just the way we want them
And we must struggle to maintain our happiness
Against countless realities we cannot quite accept-

Life is difficult
Even when it is blessed-
No one gets everything they want
Just the way they wanted,
And we must take much we do not like-

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
