Count Your Blessings



I've never made a fortune,
and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much,
I'm happy anyhow.

And as I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough.
But I've got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people
in this world have it worse than I do.
I realize just how blessed most of us really are.

Wonderful Poem Wind-Dancer Namaste

I have and still do complain at times, sometimes i fail to see how good my life really is. We are all blessed we just need to see that we are, if we could just take a look at ourselves and observe all the good things that we are, and how much we have contributed to the Lives of others & how much others have contributed their Lives to our cause as well, we would realize that is the true Blessing bestowed upon us.

And maybe one day that complaining child inside me might one day say goodbye opening myself up to new possibilities of exploration of the true self.

Many Blessings

I tend to hold on to, too much of the bad things in my life, and do not concentrate so much on the good, thank you Wind-Dancer, I shall take deeper look in future, this is a valued lesson that I can improve myself on.
