Goodbye July

Goodbye July
A fitting farewell to July was the sight of our Flag
Flying in the breeze at sunset tonight.

 

 

The days of July are coming to a close,
We have come to the end of its last day.
The sun has set on another month.
Summer is quickly running away…

Letting Go

Every day has its challenges.
All life has ups and downs.
 Many a day problems will come,
And turn smiles into frowns.
Focusing on what should have been,
And complaining negatively,
Is not going to change the present,
Or make “if only” come to be.
Therefore when upsets come,
It’s best to just smile and say,
“This isn’t what I hoped would happen,
But I’ll make the best of it anyway”
