If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

In Hindsight

in hindsight regret
nothing accept everything
keep moving forward

in hindsight sulk not
 instead fondly look back on
how life unfolded

in hindsight i'd make
the same choices if given
the chance to go back

Isnt that the truth? because everything got us to where we are now.........an incredible journey, it all is:) You write so beautifully, Bing, and always so positively. You remind me very much of my daughter in law, Zenaida. Sunny spirits.

Bravo, Bing, for both poem and attitude. Good for you.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
