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 husband or wife,
Think of someone who’s crying out for a companion.
Today before you complain about life,
Think of someone who went too early to heaven or hell.
Before you complain about your children,
Think of someone who desires children, but is 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 with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job,
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another,
Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one Maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down,
Put a smile on your face and thank, you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift. Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, And Fulfill it!
