    I made a choice today, I got up I washed my face
    and I greeted my children and sent them off to school.
    I made a choice today to let my friends make their
    decisions without my input. I made a choice today to be me
    not what others think of me but be true and faithful to me.
    I made a choice today to love my enemies, my friends,
    my family with no grudges one day at a time.
    I made a choice today to be drama-free.
    I make choices everyday because GOD gave me freedom,
    freedom to think, freedom to judge, and the freedom to choose.
    How often we take for granted the freedom of choice.
    What did you choose to do today?? :em2700:

    Some choices are more difficult than others, but a bad choice often reduces the number of positive options left. So important to choose wisely. Such a refreshing outlook poet, I think this piece will cause many to ponder their own choices if only for a moment.
