I Am Thankful For ...

FOR THE WIFE WHO SAYS
IT'S HOT DOGS TONIGHT,
BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME,
AND BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME.

FOR THE HUSBAND WHO IS ON THE SOFA
BEING A COUCH POTATO,
BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME,
AND HE LOVES ME.

FOR THE CHILDWHO IS COMPLAINING
ABOUT DOING DISHES OR CHORES
BECAUSE IT MEANS HE/SHE IS AT HOME,
SAFE AND SOUND, AND TALKING TO ME.

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 FAMILY OR 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 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.

I like it. I think I'll print it and hang it on the frig for a while. I would change the second line to 'popcorn and whatever else you can find' though. :)
