If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how "dark" the moment may be—-
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That "darkness will fade with the morning"
And that THIS WILL PASS AWAY, TOO—-
Then nothing can ever disturb me
Or fill me with uncertain fear
For as sure as NIGHT BRINGS THE DAWNING
"MY MORNING" is bound to appear.

Thank you, I have a friend who could really gather strength from this, and I am just terrible with finding words to support her. This is perfect.

You are very welcome my friend. It's not that you're terrible with finding words to support her, it's that you're an even greater support just by being there and that sometimes don't need any words at all.

This has been one of my very favorite poems for years. I've shared it with many people who have needed its encouragement. Thanks for reminding me of it.

You are so welcome Ms. Eliason. My sister knows how much I enjoy Helen Steiner Rice's writings and so for my birthday, she gave me a book of some of her wonderful collected works. Another great addition to my library!!!

Abundant blessings be upon you,
