I Am Thankful...

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

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, well the Colonel is!

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.

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,
especially this week because Olivia is home! 

My huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.
Although the kids would disagree.  
They always want the thermostat raised.

Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day 
because it means that I have been productive.

My Favorite...
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!

And seriously, I'm trying the following...

On the menu at our house tonight:

No cooking for me...tonight it's
pizza and a movie!

Enjoy your day!


  1. We do have a lot to be thankful for. That parking spot at the end of the lot, also thankful of the chance of fewer dings on my car from other car doors.

    But really we are able to give thanks in all things.
