Life is a gift

Life Is A Gift
Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer
to our Creator.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it

Masha'Allah dear Xenia!
This is a wonderful post. I'm so sorry for the lack of rose water-comments on your blog lately! I have been reading your posts now and then but been very busy with studying. My last exam for this semester is on Thursday.
Take care <3

Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu my dear sis Rose Water. Though I have been missing your comments, I totally understand and I wish you all the best with your studies. Insha'Allah we shall have more time to comment later on in the summer and I also like to apologise for not commenting as often as I would like and should. Wa Salam:)
