Life Is Never A Straight Line



Life is never a straight line Full of twists and turns and detours What an fantastic exciting ride it is As above the clouds we soar Wishing the joy will never end A lifetime of love and happiness If you're among the fortunate ones Among those continually blessed Not sure “sad” is the proper word To describe those less fortunate souls Maybe it's just that the right affair Hasn't yet begun to unfold We were all meant to find the love Of a soulmate to live with through life That one time amazing experience That we never ever feel twice Life is never ever a straight line It's an amazing over the top feeling So cherish all those memorable times One's that set you heart reeling © Jack Ellison 2013

    My Hubby loves Borp our toad... Whom he thinks is toadilly awesome. We got worried when the tree limb came down... Seems he ran away to the neighbors yard for a while. But we discovered a bunch of gutter frogs... Much to Mike's delight... Unfortunately, Borp got jealous. He came back... But will only show himself to me... Seems Hubby's friendship with the gutter frogs has his warts out of joint... Oh! Well! After playing Hide and Seek with Hubby... they'll both be happy! Kids and their games!
