I wish I could write something today that would:
Keep a young woman from having a hopeless attitude about herself
Keep a young man from making a wrong decision
Place our egos in check with a center plumb line
Place our temptations far away
Remind us how much we are loved even if it is not by the person we wished loved us
Remind us that family and friends are everything
Keep us from climbing to a height that has no view
Remind us that our view should be focused on others
Place us in the path of those in need
That we would give of our time and resources
Keep us from having to have the last word
Make us givers and not takers
I wish I could write something that would do all these things, but
answers are not found in a wish list.
We find these things within ourselves
when we center and focus on something bigger than who we are or want to be.
Is our love big?
Does our kindness go further than we can ever measure?
Is our forgiveness even bigger than our love and kindness?
