THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR

Things I am grateful for : The partner who hogs the covers every night, because I have a partner. The child who is not cleaning his room but watching TV, because that means he is not out in the street. The taxes I pay, because I have a job. For the mess I have to clean up after a celebration because it means I am surrounded by friends. For the clothes that fit a little tightly because that means I have enough to eat. For the lawn that needs mowing, the windows that need cleaning & the gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home. For all the complaints I hear about the government because that means we have freedom of speech. For the parking spot that I find at the far end of the car park because that means I am capable of walking and have been blessed with transport. For my heating bills because it means I am warm. For the piles of washing & ironing because it means I have clothes to wear. For the lady who sings loudly and off-key because it means I can hear. For feeling tired 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 hours of the morning because it means I am alive. We often do not look at things this way. Someone made up a great list.
