Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

Hot dogs, fried chicken, burgers, mashed potatoes, etc., are some of the favorite American classics. These meals have left such an impression on us through the years that it appears that everyone has a small love affair with them at some point. But, thanks to the influx of American grubs, it has gone from delicious to glorious in India.

Fried chicken is delectable in and of itself. Combining fried chicken and waffles, on the other hand, is a whole different ballgame. Many years ago, an unknown genius decided to combine all of the best elements of a fried chicken supper with the best aspects of a waffle stack. This combination birthed the perfect sweet-savory breakfast staple. Their creation is still delighting tummies all over the world. Fried chicken, which originated in America, is the crispiest and most delicious item you’ll ever put on top of waffles. You can’t afford to miss out on this sinful delicacy!

A classic hot dog sandwiched between split buns and topped with a squiggle of ketchup and mustard is as American as it gets. John Geoghehner, a German butcher, invented the sausage in the late 1600s. In 1893, they were popular in Chicago. The classic hot dog is essentially a cooked sausage that is either grilled or steamed. Serve with condiments such as mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, onions, relish, cheese, and chili.
You eat the burger and realize that God cares about us and wants us to be happy. Let’s face it, who doesn’t want a juicy patty served in a fresh bun? This meal can be found in every American restaurant. It’s got gooey cheese, tomato, lettuce, and a spicy pickle sauce on it. Request medium-rare meat and customize your toppings to your liking, including caramelized onions, mustard, mayonnaise, and relish. Americans claim to be the first to make a hamburger sandwich out of two slices of bread and a ground beef steak. The burger can be modified to suit almost any diet. Yes, it’s that fun!
