THE SCULPTORS ATTITUDE
Submitted by Judith, 1999
I woke up early today, excited
over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
I am important.
My job is to choose what kind
of day I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the
weather is rainy or...
I can be thankful the grass is
getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't
have more money or...
I can be glad my finances encourage
me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health
I can rejoice I am alive.
Today I can lament over all my
parents didn't give me when I was
growing up or...
I can feel grateful they allowed
me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses
have thorns or...
I can celebrate that thorns have
Today I can mourn my lack of friends
I can excitedly embark upon a
quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have
to go to work or...
I can shout for joy because I
have a job to do.
Today I can complain because I
have to go to school or...
eagerly open my mind and fill
it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmur dejectedly
because I have to do housework or...
I can feel honored because God
has provided shelter for my mind,
body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting
to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who
gets to do the shaping.
What today will be like is up
I get to choose what kind of day
I will have!
Have a GREAT DAY ... unless you
have other plans.
