The husband gave me this poem the other night.  He said it should go in my #craftycommonplacebook, I have to agree with him.  I loved it ❤

The Man in the Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day, just go to the mirror and look at yourself and see what the man has to say.

For it isn’t your father or mother or wife whose judgement upon you must pass, the fellow whose verdict counts the most in your life is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people may think you a straight-shooting chum and call you a wonderful guy, but the guy in the glass says you’re only a bum, if you can’t look him straight in the eye.

He’s the fellow to please never mind all the rest for he’s with you clear up to the end, and you’ve passed your most dangerous difficult test if the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life and get pats on the back as pass, but your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

Yes, I think this will be a good thing to put into my #craftycommonplacebook…Thank you, husband.  It’s a wonderful addition ❤   #craftycommonbook
