On Being Thankful

nick-mocciaDear Friend,

I recently came across this wonderful piece in a local paper here in South Florida, and I wanted to share it with you today.BeingThankfulSimpleThings1400x900

Though life can be a struggle at times, there are often many things that we can be thankful for—if we just change the way we look at things.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

God Bless,

I Am Thankful…

…for the taxes that 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 who 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 spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking

…for the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear

…for the piles 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 productive

…for the alarm that goes off at 5 AM each morning because it means that I am alive!


Happy Thanksgiving!
