    The World Is Mine - Author Unknown

    I received this inspiring message from a close and dear cousin of mine and want to share, very powerful.

    THE WORLD IS MINE - Author Unknown

    Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman and wished I were as beautiful.
    When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle.
    She had one leg and used a crutch. But as she passed, she passed a smile.
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two legs; the world is mine.

    I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm.
    I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late, it'd do no harm.
    And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you, you've been so kind.
    It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind."
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two eyes; the world is mine.

    Later while walking down the street, I saw a child I knew.
    He stood and watched the others play, but he did not know what to do.
    I stopped a moment and then I said, "Why don't you join them dear?"
    He looked ahead without a word. I realized, he couldn't 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've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.

    If this poem makes you feel thankful, just forward it to your friends.
    After all, it's just a simple reminder that we have so much to be thankful for!
    Give the gift of love. It never comes back empty!

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    whos getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise
