Think before you Weep
If your arteries have hardened
If your tired blood is stubborn,
If your dancing days are over
If your time is spent in brooding
If you're constantly complaining
If you're ornery and cranky
Well, if this is your condition
Then it's time you started trying
Though you have your share of trouble,
Like the fellow in his wheelchair,
Take time to write a letter.
Thank the good Lord up above you,
Try relaxing in the sunshine,
Then appreciate your eyesight;
When you tune in television
Just think of those who'd give a lot,
Yes, I've practiced what I'm preaching,
If you stop and count your blessings
I love Thankful Thursdays! However, I don't always wake up every Thursday feeling thankful. In fact, there have been a few Thursdays when I didn't feel like writing a Thankful Thursday post because ... I wasn't feeling especially thankful.
But then I make the intentional choice to take action and focus on what I might be thankful for. And guess what always seems to happen?
I start to FEEL thankful!
