Thoughts on Christmas

I am a New York Times junkie, and came across a post that was not riveting, but had a poem that I loved:
I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve
I asked for prosperity and God gave me a brain and brawn to work
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome
I asked for love and God gave me people to help
I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities
I received nothing I wanted
I received everything I needed.

May we all remember the gifts we're given, even if we don't recognize them as gifts at the time
