                                                      This life is a journey
                                                      we all must take
                                                      the path that we travel
                                                      is the choice that we make

                                                      Happiness is a virtue
                                                      that sits by our side
                                                      ready for the taking
                                                      and happily does abide

                                                      Burdens we may carry
                                                      for long hours of time
                                                      burdens are forgotten
                                                      when peace we do find

                                                      The path may be less traveled
                                                      and become long and rough
                                                      with a rekindled spirit
                                                      the body grows tough

                                                      The promise of perfect
                                                      was never a promise made
                                                      take what is given
                                                      before it starts to fade

                                                     This world can be a challenge
                                                     never falter or sleep
                                                     keep your eyes upon the pathway
                                                     and the journey will be complete

It's a cold, rainy and raw day here today.. Suppose to be a chance of snow for Halloween.. But this is nothing compared to what the people in the path of the hurricane are going through now or will have to go through.. I want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God wrap his arms of protection around you and comfort you as only he can..Blessings, Susie
