Here's something cute that my mom found in her things, originally from Vivian Hock. Enjoy!
I am thankful for:
...the mess to clean up after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
...the taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.
...my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
...the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking (I say this all the time to the kids.)
...all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
...that lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
...the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby (I just wish they could use a towel more than once!)
...my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm (this one is hard...it costs so much to fill that tank...help me Lord!)
...weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I have been productive.
...the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive!
Let's all take a few moments to remind ourselves that we can always find something to be thankful for, not just now during Thanksgiving, but all year long!
Something Cute...Wednesday, November 26, 2008
Originally from Queens, NY, Lois now calls northeastern PA home. You can find her blogging over at Walking on Sunshine where she shares a little of her life, but more importantly what’s for dinner at her house tonight.
