From an email that a friend sent:

If you think you are unhappy, look at them

If you think your salary is low, how about her?

If you think you don’t have many friends…

When you feel like giving up, think of this man

If you think you suffer in life, do you suffer as much as he does?

If you complain about your transport system, how about them?

If your society is unfair to you, how about her?

Things are worse for others and is a lot better for us.

There are many things in your life that catch your eye

but only a few will catch your heart…

pursue those…

Are you still complaining?

Observe around you and be thankful for all that you have in this transitory lifetime.

We are fortunate, we have much more than what we need to be content.   Let us try not to fee this endless cycle of consumerism

and immorality in which this “modern and advanced” society forgets and ignores the other two thirds of our brothers and sisters.

Let us complain less and give more!

    `It doesn’t matter what you do for a living. What matters is how proud you are of what you do.’

      Neha, you are so very correct. Unfortunately, many people define themselves by what they do instead of what they are. There is honor in walking this earth as a kind and gentle soul that is always there to help their fellow human being.

      Taking pride in your work is so important. It doesn’t matter what you do in life, it is how you do it.

    This is all SO TRUE….but not many can understand, which is very very sad

    I don’t thank GOD enough for what He’s done for me.
    And I need to appreciate Him more for each day, that i’am living in a place where i’am free.
    Because there are people who are starving in other countries, with no place to sleep, a place to keep warm from the cold at night.
    My heart goes out to them, may GOD Bless them and keep a watch over them.
    For the Lord sees the hungry and homeless in this World.
    I plead the blood of Jesus over them. Amen

    I know He sees people starving, homeless, no place to sleep from the cold nights.
    My heart goes out to them. I WILL PRAY TO THE LORD to watch over them.
    I need to appreciate GOD more then ever, because i’am in a country where i’m free , a place to live, food to eat.
    Dear GOD please be with them. Amen

    Not to worry. Soon we will be living just like a lot of folks in your pictures. I wonder if Mooch will fill my begging bowl?

    1. mcnorman Says:

      Your bowl and mine. I work like an animal bunker. I am not better off than my parents. I went to school to further my education. I work to support those that will not support themselves. I’m tired. Most of America is tired. We don’t need much to live with, but I resent being asked for more than I can give. Oh yeah, Mooch will probably kick that bowl out of your hand and toss you a weed to munch on.

        I am with you. Forced into so called “Early retirement” thanks to Obamacare.

        1. mcnorman Says:

          Great. The workers are will either be indentured or retired to subsist. Either way, zerocare will be the death of all of us. 😦
