I received this really good email forward from Linda Troxtel the other day (she was my wedding planner.) It really makes you think, so I thought I would post it on here.
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 the 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 family and friends.
-For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
-For my shadow that watches me, because it means I am 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/air bill, because it means I am warm/cool.
-For the lady behind me in church who sings off key, because it means I can hear, and am able to be in church.
-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.
-For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means I am alive.
