50th Post Is Finally Here

Here we are. Landmark 50th post on this blog o'mine. Yeah, know what your thinkin, big milestone. Had promised on my 25th post to do infill on things about me. Think I'll do that later, another time. It's been 4 day's since my last post, Dammit! Life is Good.. What can I say. The day after that post, life decided to throw a curve and it sucked. Synopsis. Had some things to deal with. But these words, 4 days later... help to rejuvenate.

See It Through
By Edgar A. Guest

When you're up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it's vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don't let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!
Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you're beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don't give up, what're you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

"Synopsis. Had some things to deal with."

That pretty much says it all, doesn't it? But, things will quickly return to the "Life is Good" phase. Cheers, buddy!

Sometimes just need to remember that it is not all one way or the other. Life is the mixture.

Just smiling at the song choice...this one helped me too a few weeks ago. It's a good one for that.
Hope all starts to run smoothly for you.

I've just gotta say, you have a wisdom beyond your years that follows you.

Life's fond of throwing curves, maybe it competes at olympic level...

rm_gerson42 replies on 6/8/2006 2:22 pm:
Yes. I like your words. Perhaps even, life itself, sets the bar.

You may fail, but fall still fighting---that line is so mighty and powerful, my fave!

Awesome 50th! Congrats sweetie! {=}

I know you know MO. BTW, where did the leg go. Loved the leg. Am I a leg man? Hmmm... Nope, just yours. Thinking outloud here... sorry.

... am still in the curve... seems to be the longest one ever, no end in site yet... but maybe I'll keep looking...

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Curves rise or fall and have only 1, single apex. My money is yours is on the rise as is mine.

That was very inspiring Ger. Congrats on 50 very well written posts. Sorry to hear about the turn of events....that is life isn't it? You just never know what the next day will bring...so enjoy good moments while you have them. The road is not easy. You're on the right path though.

rm_gerson42 replies on 6/9/2006 12:19 am:
I'm always at least on some sort of path. Haven't gotten completely lost. Always have appreciated your (used to be single eye) pic showing up on my screen with your kind and sincere comments.

Congratulations on 50 posts. I hope to be around for 50 of my own and not only posts but in years as well. A life time of learning, a lifetime of love, lifetime of friendships is waiting around those curves.
