There was a day,
A dark and dank and dreary day,
It challenged all my skills,
It was a very painful day,
And, even so, I faced it and embraced it.
As that day dissolved into memory
My skills gained greater ability.
There was a day,
A bright and shiny joyful day.
It was a peaceful day of blessed rest.
As that day dissolved into memory,
My spirit was strengthened with love.
This is a life
Made up of many days
Different and apart.
Yet, dissolving into a balanced blend.
I face and embrace all these days,
The dreary and the shiny,
The painful and the joyful.
They are the gifts of this life.

-- Teddie-Joy Remhild
