the wife who says it's hot dogs tonight, because she is home with me and not out
with someone else.
the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato, because he is home with me
and not out at the bars.
the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means she is at
home, not on the streets.
the taxes that we pay, because it means that I am employed.
the mess to clean up after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded
the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
my shadow that 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.
all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that we have
freedom of speech.
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 transportation.
my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
the lady behind me in church that sings off key, because it means that I can
the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been
capable of working hard.
the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am
too much e-mail, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.
This is just a short list of the many things we have to be thankful for, and the
Holiday Season is a great time to reflect upon them all. Best Wishes to Each
and Every One of You for a Perfect Holiday Season!
