Things Work Out
Edgar A. Guest
Because it rains when we wish it wouldn't,
Because men do what they often shouldn't,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong-
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.
Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we'd like to play-
Some of us whimper along life's way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.
Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long-
Some of us whimper that life's all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.
So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out
After a week of lots of rain and storms we are to finally have a sunny day here. The sunshine will be all day long they say! I'm excited. We did see it now and then this past week, but it was in and out and didn't stay around long at all.
I'll be too chilly for having my coffee out on the deck here this morning , but I'll probably eat lunch and dinner sitting at the picnic table in the sun. And without a doubt it will be a day to spend outdoors. No sitting inside for me today!
It will be a SUPER Saturday for me today! I hope it's a SUPER one for you too!
