    'Tis the season! Enjoy!

    I AM THANKFUL: FOR THE WIFE
    WHO SAYS IT'S HOT DOGS TONIGHT,
    BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME,
    AND NOT OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

    FOR THE HUSBAND
    WHO IS ON THE SOFA
    BEING A COUCH POTATO,
    BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME
    AND NOT OUT AT THE BARS.

    FOR THE TEENAGER
    WHO IS COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES
    BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE IS AT HOME,
    NOT ON THE STREETS.

    FOR THE TAXES I PAY
    BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM EMPLOYED .

    FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY
    BECAUSE IT MEANS 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 OUT 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 COMPLAINING
    I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT
    BECAUSE IT MEANS 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 I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION .

    FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL
    BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM WARM.

    FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH
    WHO SINGS OFF KEY
    BECAUSE IT MEANS 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 IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD.

    FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF
    IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
    BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE.

    AND I AM THANKFUL:
    FOR THE crazy people I work with
    BECAUSE they make work interesting and fun!

    AND FINALLY, FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL

    BECAUSE IT MEANS
    I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE
    THINKING OF ME.


    GIVE THIS TO SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT.
    I JUST DID.

    Live well, Laugh often, & Love with all of your heart!
