Perspective.

My Grampy always sends me emails and I love it – he even has his own folder in my email inbox entitled “Grampy emails”. Anyway, here is part of an email he forwarded me this morning:

I’m thankful for:

the taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.

for the mess to clean after friends come over, because it means I have been surrounded by people who love me.

for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.

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 the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I’m alive.
