When Things Go Right...

Good timber does not
grow with ease
The stronger the wind
The stronger the trees

Thomas S. Monson

It’s not when things go right, first-off
That we learn to fight and be strong
The stories we recount most oft
Come from those times when things go wrong

Adversity, pained, unexplained
And disappointment, is the hand
Whereby the lot of us are taught
And thereby learn to understand

When things go wrong, and we must wait
And work and trust and pray and fight
We learn how to appreciate
Those little breaks when things go right
