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, wife, or friend –
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life –
think of someone who left this life ahead of you.
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 wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another person –
remember that not one of us are 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 God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift.
