As We Approach Thanksgiving, What Are You Thankful For?
By: Peter Zomick

 

When you think you have had a bad day or just need a pick me up on life, or to have something to be Thankful for as we approach Thanksgiving, I find reading the following very helpful. Definitely makes me “THANKFUL”:
 
For the teenager who is watching TV instead of doing the dishes, because that means he is at home and not on the streets.
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 transportation.
For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in 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 have been productive.
For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive.
For the taxes I pay, because it means that 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 of speech.
For my children, who give me the chance to see through the eyes of innocence and be a kid myself again.
For the arguments with my spouse, because it means that I am not going through life alone.
For the weeds I spend hours pulling in my garden, because it means I am not seeing my garden from six feet under it.
