    I Am Thankful For:

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

    The taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.

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

    My shadow who watches me work because it means I
    am out in the sunshine.

    A 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 our government because
    it means we have freedom of speech.

    The space 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 that I can hear.

    The piles 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 productive.

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

    Immigration struggles of you all,
    because it means I live in a country where so many want to be.

            Oh, I was just amused by the last line of the poem.
