The Things That Count
Author Unknown


Count your garden by the flowers,
never by the leaves that fall.
Count your days by garden hours,
don't remember clouds at all.
Count your nights by stars, not shadows.
Count your years with smiles, not tears.
Count your blessing, not your troubles.
Count your age by friends, not by years.

Definitely a poem to hang on the refrigerator as a reminder to "count our blessings".
