I Am Thankful …..



For the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means that I have enough to eat.

For the shadow who watches me work because it means that I am out in the sunshine.

For the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means that I have a home.

For all the complaining that I hear about the government because it means that we have freedom of speech.

For the spot that I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means that I am capable of walking.

For the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear.

For the piles of laundry and ironing because it means that I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I have been productive.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.

For getting too much email because it lets me know that I have friends who are thinking of me.
