Back In the Flow

When I make plans
Life often intrudes
But I believe that
Is just an excuse

When I focus on things
That help me to grow
I find all kinds of time
To get back in the flow

I make time for laughter
Or I’d be sad indeed
And more time for loved ones
Especially those in need.
–Russ Towne
