Now without further ado here are the Sunday Selects!
Say thanksGather around a stunning long table:thumb332551233:
Fine a seat fast if your able
Who will be on your right
Who’s on your left
Will it be Aunt Sandy
Or grandpa Andy
Just stay away from Couins Ele
Unroll the napkin
Mad HatterTo think one mad, or simply a hatter.
For most such people, what a silly matter.
Oh but how, some think this bad,
And then others say, "off with his head!"
We are all mad, in our differant ways.
Shall we depart, or let the madness stay?
Often times, you've been called mad?
Though I smile, don't think me glad.
Brave enough, I know you think.
If you want, the truth to seek.
Then sweet girl, just take my hand.
And you shall see, MY wonderland.
The sound of laughterOh how I wish I knew the all the ways
You spent your smiles and
And all your happy days
I could almost hear that joyous cry
As you spin in circles
Arms stretched out up to the sky
We ran together in a blessed company

The sound of laughter surrounds me in its cold embrace
A bitter flavor it leaves upon me
It is the only thing I can taste
So long ago I heard your voice speak to me
My father once told me that life is supposed to be a struggle
And that everyone has their own specific type of hustle.
Whether it be working in an office or stacking products on a shelf.
Naturally we all share the same aim of accumulating wealth.
He also told me that nothing is promised in this life time.
When you least expect it the man upstairs will throw you a life line.
Something or someone that will give you a reason to continue.
Awaken the hidden belief and talent that law dormant within you.
He then told me that happiness and success are short lived.
In time your name will both appear and disappear from life's shortlist.
At some point you will feel like the whole world is against you.
No matter what you do some people will just always resent you.
Accept their venomously kind words but never take them to heart.
The show must go on and no one else but you can play your part.
Lastly he said that you must find a balance between work and leisure
Because those priceless mome
