A healthy perspective

Pastor shared this in church this morning and I thought it was worth posting.

I am thankful for…

  • the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.
  • the mess to clean up after a party, because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
  • the clothes that fit a little too tightly, because it means I have enough to eat.
  • my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine.
  • the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
  • all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech.
  • the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking.
  • my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
  • the lady behind me in church who sings off-key, because it means I can hear.
  • the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  • weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.
  • the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT I’M ALIVE.

  1. That is a great perspective. I will TRY to keep that in mind the next time I want to complain.
