Each day is a blessing, Each moment a gift, To love and live, To smile and forgive! Each person you meet, Is a channel of life, To know and relate, Cherish and appreciate! Every flower you see, Every a bird or bee, Every little pleasure, A precious nugget to treasure! Every friend a diamond, Valuable and strong, Tested and trusted, Held in faith for long! Every problem an opportunity, To grow and mature, To learn and evolve, While finding methods to resolve! Every opportunity a blessing, Waiting to be grabbed, Put to good use, Without an excuse! Every seed an orchard, Yet to be planted, Waiting to be nurtured, And cultivated! Every moment in life, An occasion to learn, To choose what is right, Making your days bright! Every sunrise an occasion , To be thankful, To delight in creation, And to be blissful!

@jaboUK That is so true.. most of us seem to look only at our problems and magnify them to unimaginable proportions.
