A friend of mine had this hand out on her table and gave it to me. I hope it brightens your Monday!! :D
I am Thankful for . . . (by Nancy J. Carmody)
. . .the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
. . .the taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.
. . .the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
. . .my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
. . .a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.
. . .all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
. . .the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
. . .my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.
. . .the alarm goes off in the early morning hours because it means I am alive.
. . .the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.
. . .the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear.
. . .weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.
What can you add to this list?
