    I was sitting there humble, calm, cool, and collected
    While she was straight across from me
    With her legs crossed doing the neck roll better than a parakeet
    Squawking about all the essential elements, minerals and compounds that I wasn’t giving. And I failed to agree with those accusations
    So I said, “Girl scientifically name something that I don’t do.”
    She quickly replied, “You don’t give me Iron!”
    I said, “Baby don’t I iron your clothes!”
    She hollered, “Well you don’t even give me Sodium”
    I said, “Girl the doctor said you don’t need all that salt!”
    She continued to scream, “I want Helium, to see the world’s seven wonder in a balloon!”
    I replied, “Honey my pockets aren’t that deep so how bout I just sweep you off your feet”
    She screamed, “Try again fool and stop being cheap!”
    She finally broke down and shouted aloud, “You’ll never give diamonds, silver or gold!”
    I then lowered my voice and said, “I can give you something more precious than all the three.”
    She said, “What?”
    I told her, “Close your eyes.”
    Then pressed her lips right against mine
    And gave her Oxygen, the breath of life that God had given me.

    Moral to this story: Don’t get so caught up in looking to the materialistic world for blessings that you overlook the greatest blessing of all, which is the gift of life.

    Yes...

    Every morning we awake is a great blessing, for if not... nothing else matters.


    Great story!
