Lists: 15 Things to be 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.  
Share THIS with SOMEONE  YOU CARE ABOUT.   Live well, Laugh often,  & Love with all of your  heart!
