Don't Quit!!!

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems up hill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don't quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns,

As everyone of us sometimes learns.

And many failure turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don't give up though the pace seems slow---

You may succeed at another show.

Success is failure turned inside out---

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far;

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit---

It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

A personal note from Heather;  In the sport of Rodeo many try but few make it big.  In my opinion there are a few very important things that make winners.  The winners NEVER GIVE UP, the are dedicated, focused, and they truely love what they are doing.  So when you are depressed & frustrated or funds are low, keep your chin up!  And remember: DON'T QUIT!

On the other hand....

Have you every watched your kids
on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
lapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
running through your head?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow
And in your haste,
not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift...
Thrown away...

Life is not a race
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
