Life is sometimes nonsensical
If we’re not crying, we’re hysterical
trying to fit puzzle pieces together
trudging through stormy weather
Rose colored glasses don’t exist
and if they do, there must be a twist
to understanding the “todays,”
without eyes that are glazed
But I say we keep slogging
with a little bit of blogging
We’ll know when the pieces fit
and we’ll be proud of all the GRIT!

IF we didn’t have the Gumption to laugh as the world cries as many turn blind eyes seeing only views through their own Rose coloured glasses Lauren, I don’t know how we would get through our days.. But one thing that helps see us through is our blogging community.. Very well put together, and just coming from a post about the Government shut downs in the USA…. I think some of those in office could so with some True Grit to use some Gumption in their decision making
Love and Laughter sent your way

I can attest to the fact that rose colored glasses do exists, but unfortunately people who wear them usually have vision loss and (like me) need all the help they can get! 🙂
I agree with all you said, Sandy! Happy Friday! 🙂
