Some Syrup for Your Pancakes

The story is told that Henry Mancini's daughter Felice wanted to give her dad a special gift for his birthday. So, she wrote him a poem entitled, "Sometimes." Mr. Mancini loved the poem so much that he set the poem to music and it was first performed by The Carpenters in1971.

Sometimes not often enough
We reflect upon the good things
And those thoughts always center around those we love
And I think about those people who mean so much to me
And for so many years have made me so very happy
And I count the times I have forgotten to say “thank you”
And just how much I love them

More than "sometimes" we would should thank those around us for all that they have done for us and express how much we care about them. That is the stuff that makes the whole journey worthwhile.
