A FAMILY AFFAIR

We were determine to work together to make happen what seemed impossible.  A yearlong preparation of roll up your sleeves and let's get to it, has paid off.  Now everyone is basking in the success of this triumphant journey.  I love playing a Word Game that I have created for the woes or joy of everyday living and here are my few words to describe this feat.

                                     
                                       Awaken
                                       Encouragement
                                       Excitement
                                       Kindness
                                       Possibilities
                                       Remarkable
                                       Spirits
                                       Togetherness



And when  I put these words together, I soon discovered our impact.

                                  TOGETHERNESS
   
                                Who knew we had it in us?
                                This thing called TOGETHERNESS
                                We just needed to AWAKEN the SPIRITS
                                Remove the doubts
                                And look toward the POSSIBILITIES.

                                  We knew there was room for everyone
                                  As you entered the bandwagon
                                  For the ride of the unknown.
                                  Let the journey begin, many shouted
                                  And with ENCOURAGEMENT,
                                  Others joined the EXCITEMENT,
                                   For a REMARKABLE trip.
                                  There's no stopping us,
                                   Now we are headed down KINDNESS Road.



                             EASING ON DOWN TO KINDNESS ROAD

                            She cried out to no one in particular
                            Hoping anyone and everyone would hear her plea
                            "This is not a hard road to travel" she said
                            "Come let me show you how
                              Get ready for a journey down Kindness Road"

                             Fret not if you come across a bump, here and there
                             First timers may feel a bit sore
                             But on your next round
                             You will make it without a moan.

                             Just point to the way to Kindness Road
                             She shows him, he shows another
                             To the left, to the right, around the bend
                             You can't miss it.
                              Any turn will lead to Kindness Road.


                             "What if I have a change of heart?" you ask
                               Too late says the Genie
                                That's the wish granted to your fellowmen
                                And it has spread like wildfire.
                                Any Street, Any Lane, The Alley, The Avenue
                                Will take you down Kindness Road
                                 There you will find them
                                 Joyfully banding together
                                 For a kinder world.

This is exactly how I view a world I dream of; only a little is demanded of us for coming together, lifting each other up to make a difference.

Peace and Love!
