A Man With a Treasure

A Man With a Treasure

 I know a man

 Who has

 A true treasure

 For a wife

 Yet too often

Chooses

 To focus

 On her relatively few faults

 Instead of celebrating

 And

 Being grateful

 For all the ways

 He is

 Amazingly blessed

 To have her

 In his life.

 At those times,

 The man

 Is one of the

 Biggest Fools

 I know.

 Sadly,

 That man

 Is me.

 –Russ Towne

With Love,

Russ

  1. Awww, at least you see the error of your ways.

  2. At least you know it Russ. I bet if someone asked her, she’d say she’s blessed too. ❤

  3. Knowing it is a start

      Yup. Unfortunately, as is often said, “Knowing is the Booby Prize.” Doing is what matters. Fortunately, most of the time I focus on the good stuff!

    Well Russ time to change the focus… glad you recognise the fault… that is the beginning of change…

  5. It sounds like you know where the truth is….but you stumble across your own faults on occasion…. we all do. This was sweet. And honest.

    A man cannot fix what he cannot see…thus said, may your foolish ways come to an end my friend. 😀 😀 Only a wise man can admit his foolish side.

  7. Knowing what to do is the first step. Bless you for trying. ❤

  8. I hope Beloved read this post with a tissue! ♥
