I've seen this Thanksgiving Poem show up all over the internet and although I do not know it's origin, I felt today being a Thanksgiving I'm so very thankful for that it is an important one to share this:
I am thankful for the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.

I am thankful for the mess to clean after a party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.

I am thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

I am thankful for my shadow that watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

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

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

I am thankful 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.
I am thankful for my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

I am thankful for the lady behind me in church that sings off key because it means that I can hear.

I am thankful for the pile of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.

I am thankful for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been capable of working hard.

and...

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