God was very clever,
The way he created us,
If we use the things we have
We surely have enough.

If you tend to be opinionated,
I think that you will find,
More can be accomplished,
When you keep an open mind.

We have two eyes to see,
The beauty from above,
The sense of "touch" for feeling
And a heart that feels love.

God gave us one mouth for talking,
Two ears to hear birds sing,
We should listen twice as much
Before we say a thing.

Be proud of being assertive,
But use this gift with care,
Being assertive in not uncommon,
Good listeners are very rare.

How very true m'friend!
Nothing like a good listener with a shoulder to cry on.
Love this 'softer' side of you!
Hugs~

Well, you could blow me over with your angel feathers, Dear Toe! I loved this beautiful write from your heart and soul ~ and I know that you knew I'd LOVE it!

I enjoy all your witty, fun-lovin' writes as well, but this one is very, very special!



Now what was it that you were trying to say? ~ I wasn't listening! lol

Angel hugs & kisses,
EA

this entire write was fabulous, but the last 4 lines did it for me.

Boy did you say a mouthful there!
