What’s in your enviroment?
Make a difference!
Look for the flowers not weeds.
If you find none, plant one!
Offered in many ways
My spirit renewed
Thankful for today’s challenge which offered me the opportunity to write my first Terzanelle!
Never, never, never give up. —Winston Churchill
Let your hope sever.
Hang on to your dreams forever,

Undertakes the impossible
Envisions new things
Strives to increase

Has power to create
A new life or renew a hope
Life with words of encouragement
Use words as building blocks
See broken dreams

“Upsy-Daisy” mamma used to say,
When I tripped and fell along the way.
Picking me up, kissing my tears,
She’d urge me on to face my fears.
“Upsy-Daisy” encouraged me to go,
In spite of the path of fear or woe.
Now years later I mimic that phrase,
As I help others along their ways.
“Upsy-Daisy” I say to you today,
Wherever you are, whatever the way.
Should you stumble and fall,
“Upsy-Daisy” and give it your all.
Never give up. Seek your dreams,
No matter how hard your life seems.
Hang onto hope and you’ll go far.
Remember “Upsy-Daisy” wherever you are!

June 8th is National Upsy Daisy Day.
This day is a day set aside to encourage you to face the day positively, and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.
“Upsy Daisy” Day was created by Stephanie West Allen in 2003.
Her desire in creating a National Upsy Daisy Day was to make humor, laughter and a positive attitude part of the Upsy Daisy Day
