Keep On


keep on
©2012 susan noyes anderson

when you feel like there's no winning
find yourself a new beginning
keep on

when you really know you ought to
but you feel like you don't want to
keep on

when you tell yourself hope ever
but you wind up hoping never
keep on

when your heart is saying go, go
but your answer's always no, no
keep on

when self-pity fills your gut
kick your spirit in the butt
and keep on

Amazing that is exactly what I needed to hear this morning. On our mission we are the Welfare Specialists in our assigned ward. We are assigned to take all calls into the Bishop for Welfare. This morning I had two calls where the sweet sisters both cried on the phone. At times I feel so helpless. We are mainly the messagers between the Bishop and them. Sometimes the messages back are not good and I always feel sad. I know there is purpose in not giving help; but to me it is very hard. I will keep going because that is what I need to do.I am so looking for Zion.
Blessings for the uplift!

Love Charlie Brown's optimistic nature. It fits well with the "never let'em see ya sweat"...

Darlene said...

Good message, Sue. It's not easy though, at times. But we just have to keep going anyway we can. Time doesn't stop for anyone.

Did you write this for me? although after reading your post yesterday, (which btw I should NOT have done at work..) I am thankful for my blessings and feel such empathy for this mother.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Hahahaha!!! I think I'm going to make that last line my knew motto. Epic!

Dixie Mom said...

Oh boy, this should be my motto.
I'm so tired of hearing, if I want something bad enough I will get it.
I make agreements with myself every night and wake up with NO ability, motivation or will power. Gone. I just have to 'keep on'. Even if keeping on means, literally one foot in front of the other!

Nonna Beach said...

Awesome and inspiring Sue !
I have been sick and feeling a little bummed out....this sure kicked me in the butt and made me smile too !

yaya said...

Great post Sue. My Mom's motto is "Just Do It"..that was way before Nike said "do it". She overcame many obstacles in her life and inspired all of her kiddos to never give up. Donna and I have had so many challenges at work lately and the idea of just giving up has passed between us many times. I hope she reads this today! Thanks for the kick in my spirit!

karen said...

So true. I loved the "kick your spirit in the butt" line. I have to do that quite often!

Karen Mortensen said...

Great words of advice. Love the pictures you found to go with it.

Pondside said...

I'm feeling a little wilted after a pretty stressful week - thanks for the encouragement!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Thanks honey I so needed your words tonight. I will remember them and keep going.
Hope you are well and that you have a wonderful weekend
Love
Maggie
