You Bet Your Sweet Bippy



Happiness comes in many forms Remember the thrill of your first born How could you have known at the time The challenge of keeping things in line Sometimes seemed too much to bare Many obstacles, more than your share Finally you make it all the way through Hard to replace that joy you knew Now life's taken on a whole new look Your zest for living's like an open book A positive attitude goes a long long way To help you through the darkest of days Don't let gremlins get under my skin Tell them. “Get lost, I won't give in!” It can seem like the Himalayas at times Stop and think, is it worth the climb? You bet your sweet bippy it is, my friend There's nothing more rewarding in the end Than a life all filled with laughter and joy Just like Christmas and brand new toy Happiness comes in many forms Try making “happy” your everyday norm Life's done and over way to soon Live it to the fullest, sing happy tunes! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, this is great work here! What a way to live, making "happy our everyday norm" - love that! And btw you have very eye-catching titles! It's an important thing to know because the title is the very first thing anyone reads.

    Titles are most important! I'm from an advertising background so I know the value of a good title... it's what draws people in! Thank you again my good friend!

    Life's a roller coaster. My son is in college at the other end of the state... but he keeps calling home for financial aid... He comes home but brings a vegetarian 'Vegen' girlfriend to cook for... What cooking, I say, as I toss her a stalk of celery and munch on my hamburger. Kinda like feeding my horses of old... A bucket of oats and a carrot... LOL

    I'm not a vegetarian but eat very few burgers anymore since my "life style change" as Cathie likes to call it. I guess she means there's no end to it like a diet! CRAP! :) xox
