My Mom wrote this poem a few years ago. Today is a perfect day to start a new challenge..


What in the world have you done today
To deserve a new tomorrow?
Did you offer your hand to a wounded soul
To ease his pain or sorrow?
Did you greet the day with a grateful heart
For blessings from God above,
And vow in your heart to spend the day
Giving thanks by sharing your love?
Did you say to yourself, "It matters not"
That a man's beliefs are not mine
And accept each person for who he is,
Keeping bitter judgements in line?
Did you try your hardest to do your best,
Being honest in every way,
Then reap the reward of good feelings inside
At the end of your working day?
Did you keep inside, any nagging woes
That make a spirit turn cool,
And show, instead, as God has taught,
That you live by the Golden Rule?
If you did but one of these things today,
You have no need to sorrow,
You've done enough, for any man,
To live a new tommorrow.
