Today, I am thinking about things I am thankful for.
As I clean the house, I am thankful for the dirty carpet and scratched hardwood, it means my home is well lived in.
I am thankful for my jeans fitting too tight, it means I have plenty of food.
I am thankful for our property taxes, it means that we have a roof over our head.
I am thankful for the income taxes we recently paid, it means Kirby has a job to support us and we live in a free country.
I am thankful for the my worries, it is because I have people in my life that I can worry about.
I am thankful for the pills I take for cholesterol, diabetes, anxiety and stress, it means that I have healthcare available to me.
I am thankful for Mallory’s tuition bill, it means that she is still here for us to enjoy and she is getting a good education.
Tonight, as I listen to Kirby snore, I will be thankful for having a man in my life who loves me through thick and thin, through poverty and plenty, through joy and sorrow, through sickness and health.
Tonight I hope you are able to find things to be thankful for.
