GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Sponsored by hbkcpa.com/consultants/melissa-crowley/
It's just like us humans to complain about not feeling well. Or being tired. Or hungry.
Or bored. Or irritated. Or too hot. Or too cold. Or underpaid. Or unappreciated. Or not valued. Or misrepresented. Or scrutinized. Or ignored.
Or frustrated because we weigh too much -- or because our office, class or house mates are too noisy ... or too quiet ... or too nosy ... or disengaged.
Or ticked off because the guy in the 2018 black Maserati peeled out in front of us and we had to slam on the brakes to avoid bashing into the back end of his shiny new sports car. #jerk #youdidntbuytheroadwiththatcar
Seriously...Come on, buddy.
We certainly are one spoiled, self-involved bunch of cretins, aren't we? #neverhappy #guiltyasthenextgal
That's the thing about our species, though. Rotten as we are, it only takes one little act of kindness to remind us that not only is there lots of goodness out there, but that it often surfaces just when we need it most.
Thanks for the pep talk, James. :-)
Sometimes, the best way to be happy or well or fulfilled or understood is to offer a kindness ---or an olive branch--- or a sympathetic ear--- or a little understanding. #givetoreceive
Oh, and suck it up and stop whining already, Capisce? #putgoodoutthere #complainless #smilemore
PS 86:1-2, 3-4, 5-6 R. (1a) Listen, Lord, and answer me. Incline your ear, O LORD; answer me, for I am afflicted and poor. Keep my life, for I am devoted to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for to you I call all the day. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in kindness to all who call upon you. Hearken, O LORD, to my prayer and attend to the sound of my pleading. Alleluia MT 8:17 R. Alleluia, alleluia. Christ took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.
