Balwin street in Dunedin New Zealand

thought we at least could go visit the steepest street in the world

the houses are still on the flat ground, but the street does look pretty steep from the side
me before the start of 'conquering' the steep street

Life is a gift

from SZ's blog. thanks dear, it's very nice, thought i might share it w other people too

Life Is a Gift
before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.
before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someonewho has nothing to eat.
before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someonewho’s crying out to GOD for a companion.
before you complain about life – Think of someone who died too early on this earth.
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 sin.
and when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still around.
