I am thankful for the wife who says it's hot dogs tonight because she is
home with me, not with someone else.

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

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means
they are at home, not on the streets.

For the taxes that 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

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 that
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 that I have been blessed with

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

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
that I am alive

I stopped in the store on the way home to pick up a few things. One of my town's selectmen (we have a board of three that runs things, not a mayor and a council) was in there. I hadn't seen him for several months. His wife died last summer. He has a daughter who is just finishing high school. I asked him how he was doing since the death of his wife. His words: "It sucks". And I could see tears in the eyes of this fine black gentleman. I asked him if he and his daughter were leaning on each other and he said they were and wouldn't be able to get through it without each other.
I told him when I got home I was going to give my wife a hug. I haven't done it yet. Guess I better remedy that right now.

Ya know, usually that sort of stuff makes me gag (too cutesey-sweetsie) but by golly, there's some mighty good points there. Thanks!
