Default I Am Thankful For

I AM THANKFUL FOR...

....the mess to clean after Thanksgiving dinner because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

....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.

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

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

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

....my large heating bill because it means I am warm.

....the loads 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.

....and your friendship.
I hope you all have a wonerful Thanksgiving and thank you for giving me the pleasure of your friendship.
