Make Every Day A Pleasure



Sometimes it can be misconstrued A desire to try to make things right It's in my nature to want to fix things But feelings can easily ignite Emotions are often stronger in some Than in others, a real known fact But we all want to get from point A to B With little as possible to detract We're only here for a very short while Ain't no one's gonna live forever Best make the journey smooth as can be Make every day a pleasure Idealistic, did I hear someone say? Better to strive for the top So if you fall just a little bit short Just look how far you got Sometimes it can be misconstrued A desire to try to make things right © Jack Ellison 2013

    How sad that a desire to make things right could ever be misconstrued! Just keep on truckin' Jack, you make the world a better place for us all :) xox

    Can often be thought of as a silly dreamer! What I hope is for it to rub off and others! If that happens, mission accomplished! Love ya dear Miss Wattle xoxox

    That's what I say to Dragon 'Look how far you got!' when he flies into a tree... and I thank him for the extra fire wood telling him we can have another barbecue... That is always a pick me upper for him... Get it... Fall down... Pick me upper... LOL... And with that hard head of his ... his headache doesn't last near as long as the one he gives my roses... He's getting bigger you know... it takes twice as long nowadays... to dig out my roses... and he's not hitting very many trees anymore.
