The World Is Mine


    Today, upon a bus, I saw a lovely girl with golden hair.

I envied her, she seemed so gay; I wished I could be half as fair.

When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the isle. She had one leg and wore a crutch.

But as she passes she gave a smile. Oh God forgive me when I whine, I have two legs, the world is mine!

  I stopped to buy some cherries sweet.

The lad who sold them had such charm. I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late‘t would do no harm. And as I left he said to me, ‘I thank you; you have been so kind. It’s nice to talk with folks like you. You see I’m blind.’

Oh God forgive me the world is mine.!

And later walking down the street. I saw a child with eyes of blue. He stood and watched the others play. He did not know just what to do. I stopped a moment and I said, Why don’t you join the others, dear? He looked ahead without a word; and then I knew he could not hear. Oh God forgive me when I whine, I have two ears, the world is mine!

With feet to take me where I'd go, with eyes to see the sunset’s glow, with ears to hear what I would know-

Oh God forgive me when I whine, I’m blessed, the world is mine!

"You gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face. You must do that which we think we cannot."

Eleanor Roosevelt
1884-1962, Social Activist and First Lady of the United States

It has been a long time since I’ve posted on my blog. I really love my blog , and all the people that follow me, I owe such a deep gratitude and always be grateful for all that the lord has given to my family- This “Quote” sums everything up in words. My family and I have been given a huge challenge, ( To say the least ). I have some amazing friends- Not to mention angels by our side- The staff at the hospital is – I just can’t find the right words to convey what they have done. God has given us-and- directed us; though this- Our life has changed forever!

I see people come and go from the hospital and in everyday life, just going about their business- I don’t know what is going on in their hearts and minds- let alone in their feelings as they look at the people with a Disease. Well, I can say this much- I don’t see in their eyes shame or pity- But utter appreciation for the day. This really helps put life where it needs to be- The Valets – open your car door with a smile- and you just smile back- and they always say “ Have A Great Day” Those words are always so nice and wonderful to hear- My family is wonderful- And Most of all GOD IS GOOD; GOD IS GREAT
