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 😉
