My Blessing

I've lived a life of virtue to make an Angel blush with shame. And my many deeds of sacrifice have brought honor to my name. Though as humble as a church mouse and always deep in prayer. I've been asking God if it wouldn't hurt to give me just a bigger share. Now I don't have much to show for a life given to pious thought. Unless you count a gift from God which is an empty parking spot. Because no matter what the time of day, someone's always on the go. And I'm swiftly there to take the space no matter how the traffic flows. Some people are blessed with a dozen kids and others have great fame While some may count their lucky stars their health will stay the same. But as for me... I should be pleased with the little that I've got Because no matter what the traffic mess... I get my parking spot.

HILARIOUS. I am alerting the Witch-Hunters of Washington to undertake a special investigation of your every act since you cried when the ob-gyne first slapped you TO MAKE SURE that you are telling the whole truth. We want to make sure that McHattie is not really the Mad Hatter. LOL. LOL again. Great job of writing, my friend. ~ Parking ticket Cop Gershon

Thanks Heidi. It was fun to write. It is a private joke my wife and I share. Our luck in finding parking at the busiest times can only come from a above.

I was thinking about Burn's poem about the little mouse and always marveled at it's simplicity. Thought I would give it a go.

As they say, it is the little things we should be most thankful for.

David, well penned. My surmise is you have tons of blessings besides the parking spot.))) Still, like the poem! Panagiota
