I Am Thankful For...
By Nancie J. Carmody
I am thankful for...
...the mess to clean after a party because
it means I have been surrounded by friends.
...the taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.
...the clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough to eat.
...my shadow who watches me work
because it means I am out in the sunshine.
...a lawn that needs mowing, windows that
need cleaning and gutters that need fixing
because it means I have a home.
...the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot
because it means I am capable of walking.
...my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.
...all the complaining I hear about our government
because it means we have freedom of speech.
...the lady behind me in church who
sings off key because it means that I can hear.
...the piles of laundry and ironing
because it means my loved ones are nearby.
...the alarm that goes off in the early morning
hours because it means that I'm alive.
...weariness and aching muscles at the end of
the day because it means I have been productive.
