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!
