Instead of standing over your bed saying “Time to get up”
I could be standing over your coffin saying good-bye.
Instead of frying bacon and eggs for you
I could be packing up your things.
Instead of listening to you getting ready for work
I could be hearing the sound of silence from your room.
Instead of thankful tears and prayers,
It could have been different.
To get rid of ingratitude, all it takes is a moment to think how things COULD have been otherwise. Thanks for this reminder.
I’m glad you commented because I meant to say thank you for the prayers. ❤
Amen!! Very happy to read this today. God Bless!
