I am thankful for...

 
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.  

FOR  THE HUSBAND
 
WHO IS ON THE SOFA BEING A COUCH POTATO,  BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME AND NOT OUT  AT THE BARS.
 
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  HUGE 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 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. 
  
Live well, Laugh often,  & Love with all of your  heart!
