BUZZ FROM THE HIVE: PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE…

Posted on August 31, 2009. Filed under: Buzz From The Hive... |

 
I received this in an email from a very close friend, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me.  As bad as things have been, it was amplified when I recently got some bad news I wasn’t expecting.  After reading this, though, it kind of put things in perspective.  Perhaps it can do the same for you…

Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman
And wished I were as beautiful
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch.
But as she passed, she passed a smile.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two legs; the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him, he seemed so glad.
If I were late, it’d do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you,
you’ve been so kind.
It’s nice to talk with folks like you.
You see," he said, "I’m blind."
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two eyes; the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street,
I saw a child I knew.
He stood and watched the others play,
but he did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
"Why don’t you join them, dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
I forgot, he couldn’t hear.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two ears; the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I’d go.
With eyes to see the sunset’s glow.
With ears to hear what I’d know.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I’ve been blessed indeed, the world is mine.

This morning when I wakened
And saw the sun above,
I softly said, "Good morning, Lord,
Bless everyone I love."
And right away I thought of you
And said a loving prayer,
That He would bless you specially,
And keep you free from care.

I thought of all the happiness
A day could hold in store,
I wished it all for you because
No one deserves it more.

I just read your email, Marg, and I thank you for your kind words. You are a true friend. My grandmother always told me, "Pick your friends better than yourself", and I\’m happy to say that I have. Thank you, Nana. Your words still ring true today. Marg, I know things will work out. I do believe that everything happens for a reason. I just don\’t know why yet. With everything that\’s going on in this nation, I have many diversions and I will blog about them as I await my own fate…QB
