How is your memory bank today ?
Is it full, making your dreams come true ?
Did you spend all your time working and no time to play.
All work and no play, just like you had no clue !

Work is a necessity, but time off gives you pleasure,
It is simple, 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours work, 8 hours of fun,
Work can be a drag but leisure is a real treasure.
Hiking, cycling, team sports or just laying in the sun !

Friendships in life are really the best,
Their names remembered, more than anything else.
I was fortunate to have seven, was I ever blessed.
Gladys, Bette, Charlie, Wes, Sam, Jim, George = wealth.

Going on trips ,seeing new things will increase our view
But reading a good book, is another place to go
Where your imagination takes you places I never knew.
It puts a smile on your face and you are in the know.

Planting a garden, painting and making a craft,
Hobbies are a big part of our lives,
Gives us satisfaction and they are so unique,
It's original, your personality for others to see !

Well life is serious too,
Loving our family, good times with our friends,
Remember a friendship that ends never began,
You will notice, the best things in life never end !
