If (not by Rudyard Kipling)


~~If you can start the day without caffeine...
~~If you can get going without pep pills...
~~If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains...
~~If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles...
~~If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it...
~~If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time...
~~If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong...
~~If you can take criticism and blame without resentment...
~~If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct them...
~~If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend...
~~If you can face the world without lies and deceit...
~~If you can conquer tension without medical help...
~~If you can relax without liquor...
~~If you can sleep without the aid of drugs...
~~If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, colour, religion or politics...


THEN, MY FRIEND, YOU ARE ALMOST AS GOOD AS YOUR DOG.

This has been going through my head.  I hope you enjoy it.   I have no idea who wrote it.

  1. Love it! Though I think my pup really does think he's human based on these ifs. He can be one temperamental guy.

  2. That was so inspiring! I truly didn't guess 'who' it was referring to until you revealed all at the bottom. What fun - but how true!
