Mama's Heart Felt Thoughts!
Brighten The Corner Where You Are
We cannot all be famous or listed inWho's Who, But every person, great or small,
Has important work to do....
For it's not the big celebrity
in a world of fame and praise,
But it's doing unpretentiously,
in undistinguished ways,
The work that God assigned to us,
unimportant as it seems,
That makes our task outstanding
and brings reality to dreams.....
For if everybody brightened up
The spot on which they're standing
By being more considerate
And a little less demanding,
This dark old world would very soon
eclipse the evening star
If everybody brightened up the corner where they are.
