I am Grateful for…

Spread the love

We only had two people  leave a Thrifty thought  yesterday, so I thought I would post this cute poem one of my readers sent me.

I am grateful…..

for the teenager who is not doing dishes but is watching TV, because it means he/she is at home and not on the streets.

for the taxes I pay, because it means that I am employed.

for the mess to clean after a party, because it means that 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 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 that I am warm.

for the lady behind me in church who 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 the weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.

for the alarm that wakes me early in the morning, because it means that I am alive.

and for too much e-mail, because it means that I have friends who are thinking of me.
