Things to be Thankful for~

I got this from a Ann Landers Article and hold it dear to my heart! Please take a minute to read this and thank God how blessed we really are friends!
Things to Be Thankful For

~~Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means you have
enough to eat.

~~Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party, because it means you have
been surrounded by friends.

~~Be thankful for the taxes you pay, because it means you're employed.

~~Be thankful that your lawn needs mowing and your windows need fixing, because
it means you have a home.

~~Be thankful for your heating bill, because it means you are warm.

~~Be thankful for the laundry, because it means you have clothes to wear.

~~Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot, because it
means you can walk.

~~Be thankful for the lady who sings off-key behind you in church, because it
means you can hear

~~Be thankful when people complain about the government, because it means we
have freedom of speech.

~~Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it
means you're alive.

Oh Leslie...I was just on Becca's site and read your comment about Abby's run-in with the apple!!! I'm so glad she's okay! That is so scary!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and tell Abby I said "Chew, chew, chew!"

That is an interesting perspective and things you take for granted and should be thankful for.

Thanks for the post. I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for a great post. It definitely gives you a different perspective at looking at things.

PS: Saw your post about Abby and the apple. So glad to hear she's ok. I can not even imagine what a horrible feeling and moment that was. Thank goodness she's fine. I am always worrying about those apples/grapes/hot dogs/string cheese though hubby thinks I'm a worry wart.

Hugs, Rhonda
