Daily Challenges - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Another challenge.
Another day.
How to speak,
What to say.

Whether to stay
Or to go.
When to say yes.
How to say no.

Lots to do:
Choices to make.
What to leave.
What to take.

Whom to call.
Whom to write.
Whom to visit—
Day or night.

What to cook.
What to eat.
Mouths to feed.
People to greet.

We must prepare—
And make way—
For the challenges
Of the day.

    Life's daily challenges, all summed up in a neat little package I love the way you say so much
    with such brevity. I got to go and pay some bills

    To shine in use is one of life's greatest privileges.
    The Himalayan challenge of another day faces
    us all. May your Friday be blessed.

    Warm wishes,

    Sandra
