Presence to Gratitude

Today before you think of saying an unkind word – think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food – think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your spouse or partner – think of someone who is desperately wanting a companion.

Today before you complain about life – think of someone who has passed away.

Before you complain about your children - think of someone who desires children but can't have them.

Before you complain about your childhood and parents - think of a child that had it worse than you and didn't make it.

Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep - think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive – think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet with no car.

And when you are tired and complain about your job – think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – put a smile on your face and go do something for your someone more needy than you!

Life is an incredible gift - if you can see it that way!!!  Just take some time to smell the roses!!!
