There will always be things
to worry about
But right now I feel joy
Every chapter has new challenges –
something to fear and some fear
But today I feel joy
Worries will always be with us
if we pay them the time
But in this moment I feel joy.
We did good, you and I – we did good
We worked and met the challenges,
made a home and raised a fine family
and, though there are still worries
waiting for us down the road,
let’s take a moment and rejoice in
what we have and where we are
and what we’ve done with our lives.
Today let’s accept the joy.
