Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

It is difficult to be graceful when life is hard but I live with grace
It’s hard to be graceful,
When life takes its whip,
And beats you to a bloody pulp.

It’s hard to be graceful,
When your clothes are worn and faded,
When your shoes are full of holes,
When your daily prayer is to keep your roof above your head,
When everyone writes you off,
When you wear that woebegone look of failure like a second shirt,
When what should be yours is taken from you and you have nothing else.

It’s hard to be graceful,
But I live with grace.

I live with grace because I know, I’m not alone,
I live with grace because, even when everyone thinks I can't,
I know I can.

I live with grace because,
No matter the pain,
No matter the shame,
I’m filled, with gratitude.
