attitude of gratitude

Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means you have enough to eat.

Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party because it means you’ve been surrounded by friends.

Be thankful for the taxes you pay because it means you’re employed.

Be thankful that your lawn needs mowing and your windows need fixing because it means you have a home.

Be thankful for your heating bill because it means you are warm.

Be thankful for the laundry because it means you have clothes to wear.

Be thankful for the space you found at the far end of the parking lot because it means you can walk.

Be thankful for the lady who sings off key behind you at church because it means you can hear.

Be thankful when people complain about the government because it means we have freedom of speech.

Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means you’re alive.
