I wanted to take a moment to point out that the poem as written is incorrect. The end of the poem should read, "We count our joys not by the things we have, but by what kept us from the perfect thing."

I've loved this poem since I was young. Having just lost my mother, I re-read it again for the first time in many years and it still means so much to me. Appreciate everything, especially love. In the end, nothing you have matters except what you have in your heart.
