What I Could Have Had.

I often think of what I could have had. It makes me grateful for what I do have.

I could have a mother who beat me senseless.
I could have had a father who raped me.
I could have had a little brother who died during childbirth.
I could have had two paralyzed legs.
I could have had cancer as a child.
I could have had a house that burned down.
I could have had a cardboard box to live in.
I could have had no shoes to wear.
I could have had no friends.
I could have had no food to eat.
I could have had no christmas present under the tree.
I could have had no hope.
I could have had no life at all.

It’s a beautiful thing to remind yourself, what you could have had.
I may not have gold, or a fancy car, or a perfect family — but it’s a lot better off than what I could have had.

#godbless.
