Be thankful

For the wife who says “You make the dinner and I’ll iron the shirts tonight”, because she is home with you, and not out with someone else.

For the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato, because he is home with you, and not out at the pub.

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes because it means he/she is at home, not on the streets.

For the mess to clean after a party because it means you have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means you have enough to eat.

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

For the parking spot at the far end of the car park because it means you have a car.

For the huge heating bill because it means you are warm.

For the lady behind you in church who sings off key because it means you can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing because it means you have clothes to wear.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means you are alive.

And finally, for too much e-mail because it means you have friends who are thinking of you.

    Hugs to you
