For the wife

Who says its hot dogs tonight, because she is home with me, and not out with someone else.

For the husband

Who is on the sofa, 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 it means she is at home, not on the streets.

For the taxes I pay

Because it means I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party

Because 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 my shadow that watches me work

Because it means I am out in the sunshine

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 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 I have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill

Because it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me in church

Who sings off key because it means I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing

Because it means I have clothes to wear.

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 I am alive.

And finally, for too much e-mail

Because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.

Send this to someone you care about. Live well, laugh often, & love with all of your heart!

Have a Nice Day
