Today I sat upon a park bench watching how happily some children & teenagers played
I envied them as they seemed so happy. And I wish I were as fair.
And then, suddenly,I saw a little boy rise from the beach where he laid
I watched  him  hobble down through the soft sand,
He had one leg and wore a crutch,But as he passed , he smiled it`s a
lovely day, Sir don`t you think.
I returned the smile ,nodded my head yes and added a wink .

I immediately ask the Creator
To forgive me when I whine ,  I have two legs,
and I know I am blessed indeed. For the world is mine !
To walk upon with legs made specially for me,

Later, walking down the street,I saw a man with eyes of blue.
But he just stood and watched the others play.
So, I stopped a moment and then I said,
"Why don't you join the others, sir?"
But he looked ahead without a word.
And then I knew he could not hear.

Oh Great Creator, forgive me when I whine, I have two ears,
I am blessed indeed. The world is mine!

As I continued to walk, I stopped to buy some sweets,
The young man who sold them had such charm,
I talked with him. If I were late, it would do no harm.
But as I turned to go, he said to me,
"I thank you sir. You've been so kind.
It's nice to talk with folks like you."
"You see," he said, "I am blind."

Oh Heavenly Creator forgive me when I whine, I have two eyes,
I am blessed indeed. The world is mine to see!

With legs to take me where I want to go,
With ears to hear the things I need to know,
With eyes to watch that radiant sunset glow.
Oh Heavenly Creator, forgive me when I whine,
For I am Truly blessed indeed!
The world is the Creators Pearl and for Everyone too see
Please Know You To Are Blessed!
