WE CAN BE THANKFUL FOR:
The mess to clean after a party
because it means I've been surrounded by friends.
The taxes I pay
because it means that I'm receiving money.
The clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough to eat.
My shadow who watches me work
because it means I am out in the sunshine.
A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning
and gutters that need fixing because it means
I have a home.
All the complaining I hear about our government
because It means we have freedom of speech.
The space I find at the far end of the parking lot
because it means I am capable of walking.
My huge heating bill because it means I am warm.
The lady behind me in church who sings off key
because it means that I can hear.
The piles of laundry and ironing
because it means I have clothes to wear.
Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day
because it means I have been productive.
The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours
because it means that I'm alive.
Getting too much email bogs me down
but I know I have friends who are thinking of me.
