"Count your blessings, not your crosses; count your gains not your losses. Count your joys not your woes; Count your friends not your foes. Count your smiles not your tears; Count your courage not your fears. Count your full years not your lean; Count your kind deeds not your mean. Count your health not your wealth; And love your neighbor as much as yourself." -Author Unknown
