    Something for all us whinning Americans to think about

    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 DISHES
    BECAUSE 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 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 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 OF SPEECH. .



    FOR THE PARKING SPOT
    I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT
    BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING
    AND I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION .



    FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL
    BECAUSE IT MEANS
    I AM WARM.



    FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH
    WHO SINGS OFF KEY BECAUSE IT MEANS
    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.



    FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF
    IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
    BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE.



    AND FINALLY, FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL



    BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE
    FRIENDS WHO ARE THINKING OF ME.

    You're very much right ash, in fact i donot meet half of those statements, in this thread being single/divorced for 25 yrs.
    I posted this sat. nite and with over 50 visits not one comment for the first 24hrs. I went to bed last nite thinking that i would pull the post down today, because maybe it sounded too Political or heaven forbid too Patriotic. I never intended to offend anyone with the thread, but at the same time alot of us Americans do not realise how much we have to give thanks too. I'm not happy that we are trying to solve the world problems, in fact i have a grand son who's on his 3rd term in Iraq, one time he might not come home. but i'm still proud to have the freedom that we have in the USA.

    These are JMO only and not intended to offend.

    Zip,... Please don't worry about offending. You are entitled to your opinion! Being a citizen of this great country affords you that right! And your grandson, my nephews, and others in the military protects it! God bless them all! If you have any more posts like that one, I'd like to read `em. 8)
