You poor, mistreated human beings.  Listen to yourselves complaining about
someone who shares a mutual love singing a song to you every day or about
taking for granted that someone will give you a hug every morning.  You all
have me in tears just thinking about those monumental problems.  Count your
blessings.  Come to think of it:  COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS is my selection of a
poignant song.
