Be Thankful........

Hi there,Thanks for dropping in.

I got this email the other day,so i thought that i'd share it with you as there are some very good sentiments in there to make me think how lucky i am to be here,in this place,at this time.

I hope that you get something from them as i have!

Best wishes,


I am Thankful.....

For the wife who says,"It's hotdogs tonight",& because she's at home with me,& not out with anyone else.

For the husband who is on the sofa,being a couch potatoe,because he's at home with me,& not out at the bars every night of the week.

For the teenager who is complaining about doing the dishes,because it means that he/she is safe at home,& not out on the streets.

For the taxes that i pay,& the aching muscles at the end of the day,because it means that i have a job.

For the mess that i have to clean up after a party,because it means i have been surrounded by my friends.

For the clothes that i wear,that fit a bit too snuggly,& the slight indigestion i feel sometimes,because it means that i have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches over me at work,because it means that i am out in the beautiful & warm sunshine.

For the lawn that needs mowing,the windows that need cleaning,& the gutters that need fixing,because it means that i have a home to live in.

For all the complaining i hear about the government,because it means that we have freedom of speech.

For the parking spot that i find on the street,or in a parking lot,because it means that i have been blessed with transportation.

For my comfortable shoes,but tired feet at the end of the day,because it means that i am still capable of walking,& i'm not walking barefoot.

For the large heating bills that i get each month,because it means that i have hot running water,& i'm warm.

For the lady behind me in church,who sings off key all the time,because it means i still have the gift of hearing.

For the piles of laundry & ironing i have to do on a weekly basis,because it means that i have sufficient clothes to wear everyday.

For the alarm that goes off in the early hours of each morning,because it means i have lived to see another day,& it's great to be alive.

& lastly....

For all the emails,postings, & texts that i recieve each day,because it means that i have friends who are thinking about me,& kind enough to say hello every now & then.

I'm thankful to YOU for reading this,& for taking a little time to say hello!

Hugs & kisses to all of you.....
