I am Thankful

  • For the wife who says it’s hot dogs tonight, because she is home with me, and not out with someone else.
  • For the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato, because he is home with me and not out at the bars.
  • For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because it means she is home, not on the streets.
  • For the taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.
  • For the mess to clean after a party, because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
  • For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
  • For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine.
  • For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
  • For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.
  • For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and I have been blessed with transportation.
  • For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm. For the lady behind me in church who sings off key, because it means I can hear.
  • For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  • For the weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.
  • For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means I am alive!
