Makes you think….

I am thankful

by Tim Jupp

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,

Becuase he is home with me

And not out at the bars.

For the teenager

Who is complaining about doing the dishes

Becuase it means she is at home,

not out on the streets.

For the taxes I pay

Becuase it means I am employed.

For the mess to clean up after the party

Because it means I have

Been surrounded  by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug

Becuase it means

I have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work

Becuase it means

I am out in the  sunshine.

For a lawn that needs mowing,

windows that need cleaning,

and gutters that need fixing

Becuase it means I have a home.

For all the complaining

I hear about the government

Becuase it means

We have freedon of speech.

For the parking spot

I find at the far endof the parking lot

Becuase it means I am capable of walking

And I have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill

Becuase it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me in church

Who sings off key because it means I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing

Becuase 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.

Live well, laugh often and love with all your heart.
