Isn’t it easy to forget that some people can’t….
Turn over in bed
Touch their own nose
Scratch their knee
Fall down and get up on their own
Reach up high for grandma’s jelly
See a butterfly
See children play
Hear children play
Think they can hear a butterfly play
But most of us can….
Close our eyes and know what blue looks like
Hear a faucet drip….
Play Pin the Tail on the Donkey, then take off the blindfold….
Play hide and seek and be glad when we find someone that was in the dark and lost
Speak to a stranger no stranger than us
Leave the house, by ourself.
But we also….
Bitch about having to go to work
Bitch about the long line to cash your paycheck
Bitch about having only one car
Bitch about no hot water
Bitch about “I don’t like tomato soup”
Long line at the grocery store, and there’s no honey mustard pistachios….
The Wheelchair ramp is in the way
Vets are volunteers, they knew what they were getting into….
No one knows war, War is hell.
Have you ever met anyone that has returned from hell unscathed?
Why should they demand more?
Bitch about having to vote
Bitch about school prayer
Bitch about the Pledge of Allegiance
Bitch about the Ten Commandments
Bitch about jury duty
Bitch about no Wi-Fi
But you can….
Feel the sun on your face
Feel a cool pillow under your head
Use the bathroom without help
Swim in the ocean
Take medicine when YOU want to..
Climb a tree
See lots of tree’s
Hear the tree’s…..
Isn’t it silly to bitch sometimes?
I catch myself doing it all the time..
But I forget how lucky I am, how truly lucky I am…
It is the doom of man that we forget
So… Remember to sweat the small stuff….
Be grateful and triumphant for the small things, no simpler than picking a penny off the floor.
Some people can’t do that you know….
Some people can’t see the penny…
Some people won’t hear the penny drop…
Some people have to actually save pennies….
Be grateful and triumphant that the soul is charitable by nature
But remember our small gifts…
Next time you trip and fall, be glad that you can laugh about it and walk on…
Rubbing your knee….
Next time you put a spoon to your mouth, remember the hungry, remember the handicapped
There should be no guilt in being healthy and whole
Just spread it around a little…
Give a piece of your soul
Don’t bitch about what we don’t have…
Bitch about doing more….
Bitch about bitching in the first place.
Enhance it in others
Please join us, in this human race.
