someone used to say when we were young and we had a case of the ” i wants”:

“i cried because i had no shoes, until i met a man who had no feet.”

it was supposed to make us grateful for what we had.

as an adult, i heard a comedian say it like this: “i cried because i had no shoes, until i met a man who had no feet. so i took his shoes, because he didn’t need them anyway.”

just a little laughter to start the day!

and thanks for all the good advice. writing about things i struggle with is such great therapy for me- really helps me sort out what i am thinking. so, for all of you who comment, please feel free to send me a bill😉
