THoughts for FRiday

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings.
Thank you, Lord, that I can hear..
There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed
against the morning light as long as possible.
Thank you, Lord , that I can see.
Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed
and put off rising.
Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise.
There are many who are bedridden..

Even though the first hour
of my day is hectic, when socks are lost,
toast is burned, tempers are short,
and my children are so loud.
Thank you, Lord, for my family.
There are many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table
never looks like the picture
in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced.
Thank you, Lord, for the food we have.
There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine
of my job often is monotonous.
Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work.
There are many who have no job.

Even though I grumble
and bemoan my fate from day to day
and wish my circumstances were not so modest.
Thank you, Lord, for life.

Pass this on to the friends you know.
It might help a bit to make this world
a better place to live, right?

Have a great day, Kim
