Playing The Game
By Author Unknown

Life is a game with a glorious prize,
If we can only play it right.
It is give and take, build and break,
And often it ends in a fight;
But he surely wins who honestly tries
(Regardless of wealth or fame),
He can never despair who plays it fair -

How are you playing the game?
Do you wilt and whine, if you fail to win

In the manner you think your due?
Do you sneer at the man in case that he can
And does, do better than you?
Do you take your rebuffs with a knowing grin?
Do you laugh tho' you pull up lame?

Does your faith hold true when the whole world's blue?
How are you playing the game?

Get into the thick of it - wade in, boys!
Whatever your cherished goal;
Brace up your will till your pulses thrill,
And you dare - to your very soul!
Do something more than make a noise;
Let your purpose leap into flame
As you plunge with a cry,

"I shall do or die,"
Then you will be playing the game

Good Morning!
nthusiasm for what you do means everything. If you are not in to what you have to do it makes for some dull boring days. And we all know that dull boring days mean trouble. It gives you too much time to dwell on thoughts and things that tend to drag us down. Doing something you like and putting your all into it on the other hand gives you lift that just can not be beat.
I give myself a lift just about every weekend from April til October and I love what I do…camping.

I’m still working on enthusiasm for the months between November and March. Every year I try to do my best to celebrate those days just as much as I do the others. Let’s just say that is a work in progress.

I’ve always believed that every day we live is a day to celebrate, so don’t misunderstand. It’s just that the warm weather sunshine and the out doors have a special place in my heart.
I’m off on a vacation day Friday and won’t have an entry again til Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mothers Day to all the moms as we celebrate Mothers Day here n Sunday. You all be in my thoughts and prayers


It's important to have a twinkle in your wrinkle

Hi Pam. I don't think it's necessary for me to say "happy mother's day" cause I'm sure you'll be camping and having a wonderful time :)

I've been enthusiastically reading people's blogs and commenting quite a bit of today. Tomorrow I shall enthusiastically attack the ironing. That's how I'll start out anyway, then it'll be "...I'll just finish this cup of tea / phone mum / brush the dog......' - anything so I can put off the evil moment!

Is that how you spell 'enthusiastically'? It looks wrong somehow. Enjoy your weekend.

love, Angie. xx
