When You...

When You…
When you find it hard to get to sleep tonight; Just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.

 

When you find yourself stuck in traffic; don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

 

When you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for the last three months.

 

When you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

 

When you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, for $15.00 to feed her family.

 

When your car breaks down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

 

When you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

 

When you find yourself at a loss, and pondering what life is all about, what is my purpose, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

 

When you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember, things could be worse. You could be them.
