    Hi! daffodil,

    Thanks for sharing and reminding us of all the good things we are blessed with and tend to take for granted many a time.

    These lines are superb speed breakers as we speed along Lifes high ways and by lanes and will remind us when to apply the breaks when we may all sometimes swear or rant and rave when things don't work out according to our wishes and we forget the blessings bestowed from above.

    Beautiful lines.

    PAULINA:cheers
