Yes, I’m truly thankful.
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 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 bill because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in the church who sings off-key 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 those you care about. I just did to all of my Veteranweb friends.
Live well, laugh often, and love with all your heart!
