The clothes that fit a littletoo snug because it means I have enough to eat. 5. My shadow who watchesme work because it means I am out in the sunshine. 6. A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning andgutters that need fixing because it means I have a home. 7. All the complaining I hear aboutour government because it means we have freedom of speech. 8. The space I find at the far end of the parking lotbecause it means I am capable of walking. 9. My huge heating bill becauseit means I am warm. 10. The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear. 11. The piles of laundry andironing because it meansI have clothes to wear. 12. Weariness and aching musclesat the end of the day because itmeans I havebeen productive. 13. Getting too much email bogs me down but atleast I know I havefriends who arethinking of me. 14. The alarm that goes off in theearly morning hours because it means that Im alive. 15. Even though I clutch my blanket and growl whenthe alarm rings, thank you,Lord, that I can hear. Thereare many who are deaf. 16. Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible, thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind. 17. Even though I huddle in my bed andput off rising, thank you Lord, that Ihave the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden. 18. Even though the first hour of my day ishectic, when socks are lost, toast is burnedand tempers are short, thank you, Lord, forMy family. There are many who are lonely. 19. Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazinesand the menu is at times unbalanced,thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry. 20. Even though the routine of my job often ishard, thank you, Lord, for the opportunityto work. There are many who have no job. 21. Even though I grumble and bemoan my fatefrom day to day and wish my circumstanceswere not so modest, thank you, Lord, for life. Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
