I am thankful...

For the partner who hogs the covers every night,
because he is not out with someone else.

For the child who is not cleaning their room, but is watching TV,
because it means they are at home, and not on the streets.

For the taxes I pay, because it means that 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 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 complaints I hear about the Government,
because it means that we have Freedom of Speech.

For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot,
because it means I an capable of walking
and that I have been blessed with transportation.


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

For the lady near me in Church that sings off key,
because it means that I can hear.

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

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours,
because it means that I am alive.

    that's a really blessful post. It's one of those things you rareky think about. how the 'bad' stuff isn't relaly bad...when you think of the bigger picture. Sometimes we scrutinise little details so much we get lost in them and fail to see what relaly matters.

    Heres one personal to me:

    I am thankful,
    For the ex who hurts me inside
    Because it means once I was loved, and I will be loved again

    It's crap :( I know but I was trying to kinda say... ah well

    Out of everything bad you can usually find something good.

    really makes you realise that we shouldn't moan - we have nothing utterly and completely wrong - everything has it's own small, and sometimes hard to see, blessing.
