I'm Thankful...

...for the taxes I pay
because it means that I'm employed.

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

...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 spot 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
because it lets me know I have friends who are thinking of me.
