Wanted to share a favorite poem of mine that has helped me through the hard times.  Hope it provides some encouragment and comfort.

Be Strong and Donít Give Up
By Pamela Owens Renfro

Remember, there is a deeper strength and
an amazing abundance of peace available within you.
Draw from this well,
call on your faith to uphold you.
Life continues around us,
even when our troubles seem to stop time.
There is always good in life.
Take a few minutes to distract yourself from your concerns,
long enough to draw strength from a tree or to find pleasure in a birdís song.
Return a smile,
realize that life is a series of ups and downs, some easy, some challenging.
Through it all we learn,
we grow strong in faith, we mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often the best teachers,
and there is good to be found in all situations.
Reach for the good.
Be strong, and donít give up.

God bless,
