The mundane moments in your life when you’re tempted to complain could be disguised as opportunities to be thankful.

Remember to be Thankful

The mess to clean after a party because it means you have been surrounded by friends.

The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means you have enough to eat.

A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means you have a home.

All the complaining you hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

The space you find at the far end of the parking lot because it means you are capable of walking.

The huge heating bill because it means you are warm.

The lady behind you in church who sings off key because it means that you can hear.

The piles of laundry and ironing because it means you have clothes to wear.

Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means you have been productive.

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

Getting too much email that bogs you down but at least you know you have friends who are thinking of you.
