Sunday, May 17, 2009Im am thankfull
Last Sunday I made some lovely flowers for a wedding they turned out very well.Two weeks ago whilst listening to Alid Jones on radio 2 Sunday morning show his guests were a Christian group. The poem below was aired and it really touched me and would like to share it with you. sometimes we think we have nothing and everything is against us I shall read this when I'm feeling low.I AM THANKFUL:
For the wife Who says it's hot dogs tonight,Because she is home with me,And not out with someone else.
For the husband Who is on the sofa Being a couch potato,Because he is home with me And not out at the bars.
For the teenager Who is complaining about doing dishesBecause it means she is at home,Not on the streets.
For the taxes I pay Because it means I am employed.
For the mess to clean after a partyBecause it means I have Been surrounded by friends.
For the clothes that fit a little too snugBecause it means I have enough to eat.
For my shadow that watches me workBecause 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 governmentBecause it means We have freedom of speech.
For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lotBecause it means I am capable of walkingAnd I have been blessed with transportation.
For my huge heating bill Because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in churchWho sings off key because it means I can hear.
For the pile of laundry and ironingBecause it means I have clothes to wear.
For weariness and aching muscles At the end of the dayBecause it means I have been Capable of working hard.For the alarm that goes off In the early morning hoursBecause it means I am alive.
And finally, for too much e-mailBecause it means I have Friends who are thinking of me.
Live well, laugh often, & love with all of your heart!
