Wouldn’t it be wonderful,
wouldn’t it be grand
if every day
would simply go
my way,
exactly as I planned?


I’m afraid that’s just
not the way it is
most of the time
or even meant to be;
very few things
(at least for me)
go exactly how
they’re planned to be.


I’m sure that the Creator
gets a chuckle every day
while watching me
trying to get everything
in order and how I think
it’s all supposed to be.


So over these many years
(and it’s taken quite a long time),
if there’s one thing I’ve learned,
it’s to be grateful for each day
however it turns out,
for the good days
and the bad days
and for everything
in between,
when things go
the way I planned,
or however they
turn out to be.

  3. Plans are just guides we use to get from “Point A” to “Point B”, there are just too many variables in-between to ever go as planned no matter how well conceived. If at the end of a long day I am able to close my eyes on my own terms, then it has been a good day… and that is all that really matters. :)
