REFLECTIONS ON MY LIFE

WHEN I REFLECT ON MY LIFE, I AM HAPPY THAT I AM YOUR WIFE.
I AM HAPPY THAT I AM A MOTHER.
I LOVE MY CHILDREN LIKE NO OTHER.
I LOVE MY GOD ABOVE, WHO IS COMPASSIONATE AND CONTINUALLY SHOW ME LOVE.
WHEN I REFLECT ON LIFE, IT'S GOOD.
EVEN WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS I THINK THEY SHOULD.
IN THE END, IT IS WHAT IT IS.
I ACCEPT MY LIFE FOR WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT COULD BE, AND WHAT IT WILL BE.
I RECOGNIZE HOW MUCH MY FAMILY NEED ME.
I PROMISE TO GIVE MY ALL, SO OUR FAMILY WON'T FALL.
SO IT WILL GROW TALL AS A TREE, DEEPLY ROOTED AND FRUITFUL, BLOSSOMING BOUNTIFULLY AND BEAUTIFUL.
WHEN I REFLECT ON MY LIFE, I SEE MY MISTAKES AS LESSONS LEARNED.
THE LESSONS I HAD WERE PAINFUL AND HARD-EARNED.
I WILL LET JOY PERVADE MY LIFE.
THE JOY I HAVE TO SEE ANOTHER DAY.
THE JOY I HAVE IN HELPING MY CHILDREN FIND THEIR WAY.
THE JOY I HAVE KEEP THE CLOUDS AT BAY.
THE JOY I HAVE IN WRITING MY SAY.
MY LIFE IN WORDS, VERSE AND RHYME, HELPS ME TO SAVOR MY TIME.
MY TIME ALONE IS PRECIOUS TO ME.
IT HELPS ME THINK AND HELPS ME TO SEE.
WHEN I REFLECT ON MY LIFE, I'M GLAD OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN GIVEN.
I'M GLAD OF THE LESSONS I LEARNED BECAUSE THEY TAUGHT ME BY TURNS.
TO BE PATIENT AND LOVING, THESE THINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL QUALITIES THAT CAN DRAW PEOPLE TO ME.
TO BE CAREFREE, KNOWING THAT MY GOD ABOVE GOT ME.
WHEN I REFLECT ON MY LIFE, I AM THANKFUL FOR THE BEAUTY AND THE STRIFE.

Thank you VaZFynest. I truly appreciate your thoughts.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
