Of Smiles and Grace |
Though work piles on she always smiles
her days not smooth, most times they’re rough.
Yet while she’s racking up the miles,
keeps on going because she’s tough.
Her task list grows by leaps and bounds
the duties change from day to day.
Discouraged? Yes . . . but rarely frowns
she spends some quiet time to pray.
Self-pity? You won’t see a trace
as she takes on her ‘daily do’s’.
She’s filled with confidence and grace,
tasks on her plate – “just last week’s news.”
So with a smile, serene and kind
her head held high each task to meet.
A stronger person you’ll not find
for she does not accept defeat.
Just for the Love of it
Written for a co-worker who was having a bad day
