I was walking along, minding my business, When out of the orange colored sky, Flash, bam, alacazam, Wonderful you came by…
Lyrics by Nat King Cole
What we do does make a difference. I remember an old story about three friends, none of whom could swim, who were in a boat. When they got out to the middle of the lake one of them took out a drill and began boring a hole in the bottom of the boat. The other two shouted, What are you doing?
Mind your own business, said the one with the drill. I'm drilling this hole beneath my seat alone. It has nothing to do with you.
But, shouted the other two men, we are all in the same boat!
What a true and important statement, We are all in the same boat. Our boat is this wonderful earth God has given us to live on. What we do does make a difference and what we do can be good or bad for everyone else
There are times that we just cannot mind our own business.
There are other times I think that we’d be better off if we thought more about what we do than what others are doing. So many times I have all I can do to keep my own self on track, let alone what other are doing.
None the less I’m very thankful for all the wonderful YOUS in my life. Because there are so many people in my life, I’m really never alone. I may live by myself but I am not all by myself.
My thankful list - Day 13
1127. for our little sweet sugar AB, what a wonderful 1st year she’s had!
1128. for the camera on my phone, I couldn’t find my charger for my camera so it made do just fine
1129. for a houseful of little ones playing together, what fun they had!
In a world full of people who couldn't care less, be someone who couldn't care more.
