"Oh what a glorious day"

Something really sad happened in my life today which I can't share about, but it really shook me and has made me think really hard about my life and how thankful I am for each day that I have.

I was at a concert recently and I heard a story that inspired a song. It impacted me so much that I thought I would share it. The singer who wrote the song told about how one day he was waiting in line at a post office. And the woman behind the til suddenly put her hands in the air and said, "oh what a glorious day!" The guy in front of the singer quickly responded, "ya, well will you hurry up cause we don't have all day here!". The lady at the til turned to look at him and said, "My doctor just gave me 6 months to live and I think it's a great day!"

This really struck me because as I thought about it, I realized how easy it is to take for granted what we have. And how we can be so absorbed in our own world that maybe we don't realize how good we may have it. That maybe even when things aren't going our way and we feel mad or pissed or deeply sad, that maybe we still could use a dose of gratitude.

I agree bro. It is so easy to get sideways about nothing.

Hey RL, that's very true. Sometimes it takes a reality check for us to realize that. Thanx for your visit!

Hey Sexyfit. Ya, it's easy to forget isn't it? By the way, I'm glad you had a great weekend. Mine was crazy with work and then I got food poisening yesterday from a slice of pepperoni pizza, so I'm way behind now. So I've got some long hours to put in to catch up. But maybe I'll make up for it on Wednesday when we're not supposed to blog.

I think that....
The doctor ought to give everyone 6 days to live...
My perception of reality is that they do not have to
be correct in their predictions and yet if everyone lived
like they knew they were living their last day on this
planet, they would most likely be a hell of alot happier
when they laid down each night to sleep!

I will not be posting on Jan. 11 and want you to know
that you are appreciated and loved {=} [post 197664]

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...
