I Am Thankful For . . .

…the teenager who is not doing dishes but is watching T.V., because that means he/she is at home and not on the streets.
…the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.
…the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
…the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
…my shadow that 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 the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech.
…the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and that I have been blessed with transportation.
…my huge heating bill, because it means that I am warm.
…the lady behind me that sings off key, because it means that I can hear.
…the pile 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 capable of working hard.
…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive.
…the phone calls that interrupt my day, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.
