Life on the FAST TRACK?

Where has August gone to?
Just yesterday summer began
with 100+ degrees...steaming hot,
now there's coolness in the air.

Welcome fall is not far away, then
it's winter again...freezing cold. 
Sometimes I feel like part
of a huge soap opera starring ME.


But I have no script control
just along for the ride...crazy!
When younger my dreams
of today were much different.

Continual bliss, not daily trials,
challenges and obstacles to overcome.
Someone else had different plans
for me. Life is a struggle to the end.

Everyday's a new lesson to learn.
My patience wears thin somedays,
but I continue with determination towards
the final destination at some unknown time.

I'm not sure I ever gave much thought to what my life would be like at this point. But I try to look forward to each new day as an adventure into what life has in store. Have a good one!

I'm pretty lucky, I guess, that I have a quiet, relatively calm life. Occasional bumps in the road, but not too many, yet, at least. I savor each day.

My life has turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined. And yet I built that life. Yay for me. And you should be proud of yourself too.

I've been lucky, but I always worry that there's a balance to life and something not so good is waiting around the corner.
