Gratitude and Pissing Rain.
I was talking with a couple of people last week, about how lousy the weather was, and how it’s so easy to get tired of it.. We were in a kind of communal whine, when one of the men said to me, ‘Didn’t I hear you talk one time, about the importance of having a positive attitude? ‘
I muttered something in reply, more to myself than to him .
He went on, ‘You could’ve been in Paris, a couple of weeks ago, and now in a hospital, with no legs. In which case, you’d be very pleased to be ABLE to go for a walk in the pissing rain, in the freezing cold, in the dark.’
I grumbled an assent.
So, make the most of where you are, with what you’ve got.
He didn’t say that. I did.
