A Thankful Heart

in light of the recent events mentioned in my blog, here are a few things to be thankful for:

a father who was proud to have me as his son.

taxes i pay because it means that i'm employed.

clothes that fit a little snug because i have enough to eat.

all the complaining i hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

the space at the far end of the parking lot because it means i am capable of walking.

a huge heating bill because it means i am warm.

the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that i can hear.

the pile of laundry and ironing i have because i have clothes to wear.

being tired at the end of the day because i have been productive.

the alarm that goes off early in the morning because it means i am alive.

a broken heart, because of the ability to love.

my prayer for you is to notice a friend or family member this week. ask if they need something, offer to chat. just reach out. you never know who you will find. and you never know who you will help. even if they don't even know you did.
