I am Thankful

For the taxes that I pay, because that means that I am employed.
For the mess to clean after a party, because that means that 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 the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning & gutters that need fixing, because that means I have a home.
For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that 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 & that I have been blessed with transportation.
For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm
For the lady behind me in church that sings off key, because it means that I can hear.
For a pile of laundry & ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
For weariness & aching muscles & my feet that hurt a 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 that I am alive
