I am Thankful

 

 

  
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 DISHES 
BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE IS 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 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 
WE HAVE FREEDOM O F SPEECH. 


FOR THE PARKING SPOT 
I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT 
BECAUSE I T 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 KE Y 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 FINALLY, FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL 

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

SEND THIS TO SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT. I JUST DID. 

Live well, Laugh often, & Love with all of your heart!
