Chances

Poem By Sallie Lee Short

Our chances in life are far and few;
It depends on the individual and that is YOU. You may be born wealthy, in poverty, or go home to a prosperous farm;
Future chances start the day you are placed in your mother's arms. Growing up you have many chances to decide what you want to be;
Doctor, lawyer, or a handyman who makes a living trimming trees. A chance of having the winning ticket in a lottery is one the average person will never see;
Believing your name will be selected in a million dollar sweepstakes is usually just a fantasy. A chance to be famous is all our dreams;
Success isn't always easy and a long time coming, it seems. Compassion for others-the strangers we meet;
If we befriend the homeless and give them a chance,
would they still be homeless and living on the street? A chance to have a good marriage, to find a good husband or wife;
Our chances will be better and better as long as we keep GOD in our life.

One Kind Word Today

You get out of bed to start a new day, before you know it something gets in your way.
You can't find this and you can't find that. The dog keeps barking, and has scared the cat.
Just when you are ready to leave, you discover you can't find your car keys.
Whatever words you say, let it be one kind word today.
