I’M LUCKY

I heard a man say he hated his wife.
I love my wife, I’m lucky.
I heard a man say he hated his kid.
I love my daughter, I’m lucky.
I heard a man say he was going to junk his Mercedes.
I love my clunker, I’m lucky.
I heard a man say he had medical problems.
I have my health, I’m lucky.
I heard a man say his banks were giving him grief.
My account is fine, I’m lucky.
Instead of wishing for what I don’t have
I should be counting my blessings
for what I do have:
I’m happily married with a beautiful daughter,
My car gets me around, I’m in good
health.
And I have a few dollars in the bank.
Come to think of it, I’m very lucky!!!
