Life is a gift – show some gratitude

I found this in my email inbox today

 Life Is a Gift!

Today before you say 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 husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to God for a companion.

Today before you complain about life -Think of someone who went too early to heaven.

Before you complain about your children -Think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

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.

And when you are tired and complain about your job -Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another -Remember that not one of us is without error and we all answer to the Divine. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your face and Thank the Divine you’re alive and still around
