I am Thankful for… by Nancie J. Carmody

…the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

— the taxes I pay because it means that I’m employed.

–the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

–my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

Free speech zone:  I am thankful for…

…all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

…the lady behind me in church who sings off-key because it means that I can hear.

Parking–the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.

…the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.

…weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.

…a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.

…my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I’m alive.
