Let’s Be Grateful

“I cried because I had no shoes, till I saw a girl who had no feet”
We start our day with complaining about early mornings. We complain about the water not being adequately warm or cool for bathing. If our coffee or tea is either too hot or too cold, our mood gets spoiled within a fraction of a second. We open our closets and complain that we have nothing to wear even though our closets are overflowing with clothes.

It is the irony of life that we want to see the glass half empty and if by chance, it is not half empty, we make it seem so with the way we look at things.But, have we ever thought that God never forgets to wake us up every morning? While we wake up complaining, we forget that we are sitting on a warm soft bed and have had a sound sleep, when many of us have sleep on roads and dust.When we open the tap, we complain about the temperature of the water, but we forget to acknowledge the fact that we have so much water at our disposal.If our coffee is too cold, we complain, but we forget that many of us don’t even have a mug of coffee, let alone cold or warm.
All I feel is that we must be grateful for whatever God has been kind enough to give us. Just take some time out and think if we ever lost all this, how our lives would be.
I feel then, we will stop complaining!
