I Am Thankful For...



* The partner who hogs the covers every night, because they are not out with someone else;

*The child who is not cleaning his room, but watching TV, because that means he is at home and not on the streets;

*For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed;

*For the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends;

For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat;

*For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am in the sunshine;

*For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home;

*For all the complaints I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech;


*For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and that I have been blessed with transportation;

*For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm;

*For the lady behind me in church that sings off key, because it means that I can hear;

*For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear;

*For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because I have been working hard:

*For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive;

AND FINALLY...

** For too much E-mail, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.

Thoughts Influence Power...TIPS

Words are powerful! Notice how the connecting words For and Because can help us to appreciate what we have and that in itself is empowering!


Let's add to this list and personalize it as a family exercise, especially to help us remember the reason for the season as we prepare to celebrate this Special Thanksgiving Holiday...

Happy Thanksgiving

from my home to your home! TR Johnson
