I Am Thankful…

I received the following email several years ago, but the spirit of it still rings true today:

  • For the husband/wife who snores all night, because he/she is at home asleep with me and not with someone else.
  • For my teenage daughter who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means she is at home and not on the streets.
  • For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.
  • For the mess to clean after a party, because it means I am not alone and have been surrounded by friends.
  • For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
  • For the 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 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 and that I have been blessed with transportation.
  • For the noise I have to bear from my neighbors, because it means that I can hear.
  • For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  • For 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 that I am alive.
