Poem for Sunday – Almost as good as your dog

If you can always be cheerful,
If you can sleep without drugs,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can take blame without resentment,
If you can resist complaining,
If you can eat the same food every day and
be grateful for it,
If you can understand it if your loved ones are
too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it
out on you when, through no fault of yours,
something goes wrong

Then, my friend, you are ALMOST as good as your dog.
