Food for thought - Always Be Grateful

ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL

Yesterday, on a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair.
I envied her, and I wished I was as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and used a crutch.
But as she passed, she gave a smile.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine. I have 2 legs, I am grateful!

I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him, he seemed so glad.
If I were late, it'd do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me;
"I thank you, you've been so kind. It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind."

Oh God, forgive me when I whine. I have 2 eyes, I am grateful!

Later while walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play.
He seemed not to know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
"Why don't you join the others dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
And then I knew he couldn't hear.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine. I have 2 ears, I am grateful!

With feet to take me where I'd go.

With eyes to see the sunset's glow.

With ears to hear what I'd know.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine. I've been blessed indeed, I am grateful!

If anyone is grateful?

For us at the Theinfostrides, "BABA GOD, WE ARE GRATEFUL!"
