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.
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!
