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.
