This week, the week of Thanksgiving, I am bringing you something a little different for my Grateful Fridays post. I saw this YEARS ago, I don’t know who wrote it. The sentiment of these words is something I try to carry with me always. To me the message is be grateful in all things because there is always something to be grateful for.
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 am 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 that I have a home.
…the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
…all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
…my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.
…the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
…the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.
…weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.
…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I’m alive.
