What Are You Thankful For

 

What are you thank­ful for?

It feels so good to take a minute and push aside all the com­plaints of the day and just be thank­ful.  Share some­thing you’re thank­ful for with us, and we’ll share it with all of east Idaho.

We got this in our inbox today.  It’s a pretty good list.  Add to it — tell us what you’re thank­ful for here.  And Happy Thanks­giv­ing, from Mike & Liza.

I am thank­ful…
.. for the hus­band who com­plains when his din­ner is
not on time, because it means he is home with me, not
with some­one else.
.. for the teenager who is com­plain­ing about doing
dishes, because it means she/he is at home, 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 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 ofspeech.
.. 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 it means I have been capa­ble of work­ing
hard and using those limbs.
.. for the alarm that goes off in the early morn­ing,
because it means that I am alive.
