I Am Thankful…….

Since it’s Thanksgiving Time – I thought this was a great post. I got this email from a good friend and I found it very fitting for the Holidays!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

 

FOR THE grown kids 
WHO are COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES 
BECAUSE IT MEANS they are 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 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
 I AM THANKFUL: 
FOR THE crazy people I work with
 
BECAUSE they make work interesting and fun! 

       

AND FINALLY, FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL 

BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE   
THINKING
 OF ME.
