I'm Thankful…
Author Unknown

…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.

Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving
a meal. It’s a way to live.
