A Song To Guide Your Day

from the bridge

There’s a dark and a troubled side of life;
There’s a bright and a sunny side, too;
Tho’ we meet with the darkness and strife,
The sunny side we also may view.

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life;
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way,
If we keep on the sunny side of life.”—Ada Blenkhorn (1899)—

This song has been around for over a hundred years. It was written the year my grandmother was born and was widely popularized in a 1928 recording by the Carter Family. Its message holds true for us today, also. Your assignment today is to read the lyrics a couple of times and get it in your head. Sing it all day long to yourself and share it with someone else.

Share a smile with the sunny side
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
