A List of what I’m Currently Thankful for:
The mess to clean up after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
The taxes I pay because it means that I’m employed, well the Colonel is. Here he is with some of his cadets in April.
My shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.My favorite flower from our garden this summer…
All the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
That lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
The piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby, especially this week because Olivia is home!
My huge heating bill because it means that I am warm. Although the kids would disagree. They always want the thermostat raised.
Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I have been productive making my family’s favorite meal.
The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive!
Let’s all take a few moments to remind ourselves that we can always find something to be thankful for, not just now during Thanksgiving, but all year long!
