I am thankful...

A dear friend sent this to me in email...

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 teenager who is complaining about doing dishes,
Because that means she is at home, and not on the streets.

For the taxes I pay,
Because it means I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party,
Becuase 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 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 have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill,
Because it means I am warm.

For the pile of laundry and ironing,
Because it means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muschles 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 email,
Because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.

Please feel free to steal it... I stole it myself. :)

Yes, as I was moving it into my journal, I had a similar thought (about the junk mail). One of the gifts that junk mail gives me is the chance to learn how to let go of things I don't need! (Delete Delete Delete!)
