  1. I am thankful

    This was sent to me by a friend. Yes it is true I do have friends.

    Through Jesus let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise. Hebrews 13:15

    I am thankful:
    for the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes
    because it means she is at home,

    not on the streets.

    For the taxes I pay
    because it means
    I am employed.

    For the mess to clean after a party
    because it means I have
    been surrounded by friends.

    For the clothes that fit a little too snug
    because it means
    I have enough to eat.

    For my shadow that watches me work
    because it means
    I am out in the sunshine

    for a lawn that needs mowing,
    windows that need cleaning,
    and gutters that need fixing
    because it means I have a home.

    For all the complaining
    I hear about the government
    because it means
    we have freedom of speech..

    For the parking spot
    I find at the far end of the parking lot
    because it means I am capable of walking
    and I have been blessed with transportation.

    For my heating bill
    because it means
    I am warm.

    For the lady behind me in church
    who sings off key because it means
    I can hear.

    For the pile of laundry and ironing
    because it means
    I have clothes to wear.

    For weariness and aching muscles
    at the end of the day
    because it means I have been
    capable of working hard.

    For the alarm clock that goes off
    in the early morning hours
    because it means I am alive.

    And finally, for too much e-mail
    because it means I have
    friends who are thinking of me.
