I am Thankful!

Was reading my emails at yahoo when suddenly I came across of this and I just want to share it with you.....It's beautiful!  Somehow, I felt relieved after being reminded to be thankful despite the difficult times in my life.


 For the wife who says it's hotdogs tonight, because she is home with me, and not out with someone else. 

For the husband who is on the sofa being couch potato, because he is home with me and not out at the bars. 

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means she is t home and not on the streets. 

For the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed. 

For the mess to clean after the party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends. 

For the clothes that fit a little to 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 that 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 that I have been blessed with a transportation. 

For my huge heating bill because it means I am warm. 

For the lady behind me in the church that sings off key because it means that 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 am capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive. 

And finally for those who read this post because it means I have visitors here in this blog.  :)

Isn't this enough reason to be happy?  

And because I am happy, I am linking this to .......
