I Am Thankful For . . .
By House to House Heart to Heart8595
I am thankful for . . .
the wife who says it’s hot dogs tonight because she is home with me and not out with someone else.
the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato because he is home with me and not out at the bars.
the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes because it means she is at home, not on the streets.
the taxes I pay because it means I am employed.
the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
the clothes that fit a little too snugly because it means I have enough to eat.
my shadow that watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine, and for a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a house.
all the complaining I hear about the government because it means we have freedom of speech.
the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking and have been blessed with transportation.
my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.
the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
the pile of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.
weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been capable of working hard.
the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means I am alive.—submitted by Frances Shipp,Weaver, Alabama
