for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours,
because it means I am alive.
for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
because it means I have been capable of working hard.
for my shadow that watches me work,
because it means I am out in the sunshine.
for the taxes that I pay,
because it means that I am employed.
for the clothes that fit a little too snug,
because it means I have enough to eat.
for the teen-ager who is complaining about doing dishes
because he is at home and not on the streets.
for the mess to clean up after a party,
because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
for a lawn that needs mowing,
windows that need cleaning and need fixing,
because it means I have a home.
for the lady behind me in church that sings off key,
because it means that I can hear.
for all the complaining I hear about the government,
because it means that I have freedom of speech.
for the parking spot at the far end of the parking lot,
because it means I am capable of walking
and that I have been blessed with transportation.
for my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
Beautiful graphic and I truly love the words...Amen! I was getting something ready and had to get ready for hair appointment. I need a trim badly. See you and everyone when I get back. Its a beautiful day here and I’m thankful for that and am thankful I awakened this morning!!
Great ‘seeing’ you!
