Be contented of what you have...

Relax and talk about anything in general

Upon reading this story, i just realize how lucky I am....what a touching story..

Yesterday, upon 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, God help her.

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, God help him.

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, God help him.

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,
God help them.

and as i boarded a bus i looked at my hands then i realized that
one hand is meant for me and the other
to help others.......

"Great trouble comes
From not knowing what is ENOUGH.
Great conflict arises from WANTING too much.
When we know when ENOUGH is ENOUGH,
There will always be ENOUGH."
