Life Is A Gift

Darn the PMS! Disturbing my focus on task at hand. Also, it is starting to rain everyday now. The gloomy sky matches my mood. Nothing much can be accomplished in this kind of mood. So, whenever it hits, I'd rummage in my folder and reread something I 've been collecting for moments like this. Since I am a blogger now, I can share this piece which reminds me to relish every moment for it might not come around again.
Life Is a Gift
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.
Today before you complain about life - think of someone who went too early to heaven.
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 - 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, live it, enjoy it, celebrate it, and fulfill it.
Relish the moment, it may not come around again!
