{thankful}

…the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by family and friends.

…the taxes I pay because it means that I am employed.

…the clothes that fit a little to snug because it means I have enough to eat.

…my shadow who watches me work because it means I am in the sunshine.

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

…all the complaining I hear about government because it means we have freedom of speech.

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

…the lady behind me in church who sings of key because it means that I can hear.

…my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.

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

…the piles of laundry and dishes because it means my loved ones are nearby.

I found this on one of my friends blogs and I loved it, it really made me think of the simple things that I should be thankful for. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Brian's family, my parents, brother, and grandpa. Good food of course and just relaxing. Later that night my sisters came over and we scoped out the ads. We woke up at 3:45 on Black Friday and shopping we went. We got everything on our lists and had tons of fun!!
