I Am Thankful For...
The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
All the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
The taxes I pay because it means that I am employed.
My shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
The spot I find at the end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
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.
A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.
My heating bill because it means I am warm.
The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.
