Winner In Life.


I look back along the path,

The path of my life.

There are ups and downs

But I have reached a place,

A place of peace and love

Where I can look back and realise

That I am in a good place,

Knowing that I am a winner,

A winner in my life.

    We are all winners Andy if we choose to look at life that way. The abused old heart still pumps it's stuff around and the grey matter composes grumbles. No wooden box or ash filled urn yet. A winner so far!

      We certainly are d a, things are still working and as I say to people when they ask how I am "I got up this morning so all is well"

      Well there was that time I beat you at backgammon.Oh and croquet, Chinese patience, rummy, rummikub.......

      • Goldfinch60

        Only once at backgammon young man, only once! As for the croquet that was only one hoop you went through and I let you have that one, the rest were mine.

        We are all in a good place or capable of getting there but it takes a person of wisdom to recognise it.

        • Goldfinch60

          Wise words Michael, thank you.


        • Fay Slimm.

          Can relate utterly with these lovely words dear Andy - may you ever remain in that wonderful place of peace.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thant you Fay, I am sure I will remain in that place of peace and I hope that place is with you as well.


          • Rozina

            To reach this place, to be a winner in your life, you are so blessed.

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Rozina, yes I believe that I am blessed.
