†Some say life is what you make It.
But some times this is not true.
For try as hard as you may
There are some things you can not do
But if we knew what we were to do
A day or two ahead there would surely
Be a day or so that we would stay in bed.
If some day your feeling sad and blue
And you canít think of a thing to do.
Pray to the good lord up above
For he died for the love of you.
If you think you have it bad and you feel that youíve been had
This is no reason to be sad for look around you and be glad
For the things that you do have freedom .†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
A person who makes no mistakes
Must really have what it takes
Or are they Idle all the day
For this is what some must say.
Why must I live with a troubled mind
Why canít I have love and be kind
Why must I hurt the ones I love so dear
Why must I live in constant fear
Why must I be so lost in life when I have
Such a wonderful wife.
A nurseís work is never done very seldom does she see the sun
She treats each patient as her son , she ask not for glory or for fame
But only to heal the weak and the lame, With love and kindness
and a tender touch she heals the wounds that hurts so much.
When the bright lights of the city go dark for you some day
There will always be a bright spot in my heart that will always stay
Today you are a starlet that so many can enjoy and to think that you
Once called me your loving country boy.
It was once said all we needed was a good five cent cigar
But now all we need is a good cheap running car
Now they are some that could give you wealth and all so offer you the moon
But all I can offer you honey is my love that will all ways bloom
Why do we do the things we do why do we say the things we say
I know God must shake his head for some of the things that we have said
If we could smile when we are sad I donít think God would feel so bad
So smile when you are sad.††††
If someone you know is feeling sad and blue give them a kind word
or a just a smile will do.
To make sure that they are one less dishonest person on this earth
Be honest your self.
Some say wealth is money and power that it brings
Others say itís land, homes, cars and a lot of other things
To me wealth is love , kindness and a good education.
Because you can lose your money, power, land, cars from theft
Wars or a revolution† .
But they canít take a way your love your kindness
or your education .
Christmas comes with good will and cheer Festivities and fun on New† year
On Easter Sunday in prayer we abide Our Savior in that day was crucified .
When Memorial Day comes we bow our head in humble respect for our solders dead .
Fourth of July our forefathers did decree that this was the home of the brave and
The free . and we give thanks on Thanksgiving Day , that we have the chance to live
that way . But there is one day we must not forget It is a day that each one of us beget
Weather we are near or weather far away we should always remember when itís
Mother Day .††††††††††††† by Thomas V Antrim
I never knew I had any kin with the same last name as mine. for my father had told me what had been on his mind.
A long time ago his sister and two brothers had passed a way, this I could see was hard for him to say.
After many years I began to wonder who were my Grand-Parents that had the last name the same as mine.
As looking for a needle in a hay stack which would be easier to find than looking for my Grand-parents that had the
last name the same as mine.
After checking records and reading many books back in 1635 a man with the same last name as mine came to America
to seek freedom and plant seeds of hope.
Through-out history I now do find many a man with the last name the same as mine.
Their deeds through-out history I read with much pride, with friends and neighbors and God on their sides they fought
the Red coats they did not run or hide.
Later in history their sons would ride to do battle to set all men free.
These men came from all walks of life from cites and farms some large and some small.
I can honestly say with much pride it makes me feel about ten feet tall.
When I began to look for my family tree I only had a seed I not only found the tree but a forest of people with the last name like mine.
I am proud to be an Antrim .
