Staying Strong

Always expect the unexpected. Don't be shocked by a surprise. Sometimes our nonchalant complacency presents a new gift in disguise. The future we had planned for isn't always whats in store, but for each lost opportunity we'll find another door. We will find a way of coping when we thought we never could. What seemed at first so negative can be transformed into 'good'. The seed of faith grows hardier; the weakness becomes strong and soon what first seemed 'gloom and doom' sings a much more hopeful song. Inside each grey and blustery cloud there lies a silver seed of hope. It nestles in the misery and grows to help us cope. It blossoms into friendship we never knew was there; it blooms when people 'rally round' and show they really care. So, don't be shocked by life's surprises. Don't let them knock you to the ground. Let the bellow of the storm die down and hear the tinkling silver sound
