Perspective: Being Thankful


Perspective: Being Thankful

I am thankful for…

…my wife who says it is hot dogs tonight because she is home with me and not someone else.

…my husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato because he is home with me and not out at the bars.

…my teenager who is complaining about doing dishes because it means she is at home and not on the streets.

…the taxes I pay because it means I am employed.

….the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

…the clothes that fit a little to snug because it means I have enough to eat.

…my shadow that watches me work because it mean I am out in the sunshine.

…a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need to be cleaned and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.

…all the complaining I hear about the government because it means we have the 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 I have been blessed with transportation.

…my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

…the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.

…the pile of laundry and ironing because it mean I have clothes to wear.

…aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have had the capability to work hard.

…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means I am alive.

The silver lining of life’s little clouds are visible if you know where to look. When you feel the need to complain about something stop and reflect on the opposite. Most of the time you will be happy to have to deal with your current issues.
