COUNT WHAT COUNTS IN LIFE

As a young boy

I remember how proud I was

when I learned to count to ten.

Soon counting became a way of life.

Something always needed counting.

But oh how life has changed.

Technology now does the counting for us.

That’s well and good,

but some things technology cannot count.

Things that come from the heart.

Things like these old poetic lines

written by an unknown author.

They’re worth reflecting upon.

”Count your garden by the flowers,

Never by the petals that fall.

Count your days by golden moments.

Never the rain clouds at all.

Count the night by the stars, not darkness.

Count your life by smiles, not tears.

And with joy on every birthday,

Count your age by friends, not years.”

  1. Hi Chuck,

    Couple typos:

    Talking about counting your days “be” memories, should be “by” memories. Same error follows in next example.

    1. Thank you, Lou. Thanks for the heads up. I did correct those errors right away so I’m assuming you saw them just minutes before corrections were made. Otherwise, I would be puzzled.
