This poem always reminds me of how grateful I must be.I just had a little Granddaughter this past June and she is the light of everyone's life. I get a bit of a tear just thinking of her. My Mama and Daddy watch over her daily.
So when my Little hooligans were young a woman gave me a poem and I have kept it close because it reminds me of how grateful I should be. Here you go !
I Thank God
For the teenager who is not doing the dishes but is watching TV,
Because that means she is home and not on the streets.
For the taxes that I pay,
Becuase it means I am employed,
For the mess to clean after the party,
Because it means I have friends.
For the clothes that fit a little to tight,
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, window 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 I 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 that I have been blessed with transportation.
For my hugh heating bill,
Because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in chrich 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 weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
Because it means I have been capable of working.
For the alarm that goes off early in the morning,
Because it means I am alive.
And finally ......
For to much email,
Because it means I have friends who are thinking of me!
