When I was a kid, my Dad gave me a lot of encouragement, and he read lots of motivational poems to me. One of them was “It Couldn’t Be Done” by Edgar A. Guest. The poem was in a book called “The Best Loved Poems of the American People” – which I still have (see the photo) and which is now in a very tattered state!
I owe a LOT to my Dad. He was – and still is – one of my greatest pillars of support. I learned more from him than I think I have ever learned from anyone else in my life. Actually, I think I’ll need to share more about my Dad in some future posts – but suffice it to say that if everyone had a Dad as amazing as mine has been, it would be a more wonderful world than it already it.
(By the way – this is not to dismiss the amazing gifts I also received from my Mom, who unfortunately left this earth far too soon in 1987 after a long illness… I miss her very much, and I’m guessing I’ll write about her as well!)
Anyway, I became inspired to make a quick video for you about this poem, which I share with you now (I link to the print version below the video)
(Oh… If you decide you enjoyed my debut video – yes… this is my FIRST video on this blog – Please click the FaceBook “Like” button here – you won’t leave the page. Thank you SO MUCH!)
Anyway, I would like to share my favorite “It Couldn’t Be Done” story with you now – which you can read here at my article – CLICK HERE => A Motivational Poem – It Couldn’t Be Done.
Cngratulations, Kathy! Give yourself a pat on the back!
Thank you Sara! Your words mean a lot to me! 🙂 Kath
