Why Were the Saints Saints?

    All Saints Day is tomorrow - Nov. 1, 2014.  Here is a little saying my Grandfather kept on his dresser mirror.
Why Were The Saints Saints?
Because they were cheerful
when it was difficult to be cheerful;
when it was difficult to be patient;
and because they pushed on
when they wanted to stand still;
And kept silent
When they wanted to talk;
And were agreeable
When they wanted to be disagreeable.
That was all.
It was quite simple
and always will be.
