Giving thanks


As many of you know, I lost Bob on July 22. Of course it was a bitter blow but we “soldier on” because we have no choice in the process called death. God bless, Bob.

In spite of all the grief and hurt, there is much to be thankful for.

Here’s an article my sister sent to me, and it covers a lot of what we should include when giving thanks.

I am thankful for...

The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

The taxes I pay because it means I’m employed.

The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

My shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

The lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.

The spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.

The complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

The huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear.

The piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.

The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I’m alive.

The weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.

Life gets so busy and competitive that we forget what’s really important. May all the people you know and love be thankful, always.

Stay well, stay involved and stay tuned ...
