Count Our Days

Counting God's blessing in our daily lives

Be The Best Of Whatever You Are


If you can’t be a pine on the top of a hill,
Be a scrub in the valley, but be the best little scrub on the side of the hill.
Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.
If you can’t be a bush, be a bit of the grass
And some highway happier make.
If you can’t be a muskie, then just be a bass,
But the liveliest bass in the lake.
We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew.
There’s something for all of us here.
There’s big work to do and there’s lesser work, too,
And the thing we must do is the near.
If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail.
If you can’t be the sun, be a star.
It isn’t by size that you win or you fail,
Be the best of whatever you are.

– Douglas Maloch
