A good email :)


I’m sitting at Melissa & Nat’s apartment right now writing my paper, and taking a brain break. I’m so glad to have such amazing friends in my life. Last week I got an email I had to share. I usually don’t look too long at these types of emails but this one stuck.. so I had to share :) Thanks for sending it to me Syl!

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE WIFE who says it’s hotdogs tonight because she’s home with me and not out with someone else.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE HUSBAND who is on the sofa being a couch potato because he is home with me and not out at the bars.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE TEENAGER who is complaining about doing dishes because it means she is home and not out on the streets.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE TAXES I PAY because it means I am employed.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN UP AFTER A PARTY because it means I have been surrounded by my friends.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO SNUG because it means I have enough to eat.

I AM THANKFUL FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK because it means I am out in the sunshine.

I AM THANKFUL FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING, WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING, AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING because it means I have a home.

I AM THANKFUL FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT because it means we have freedom of speech.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE PARKING SPOT I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT because it means I am capable of walking and have blessed with transportation.

I AM THANKFUL FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL because it means I am warm.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH WHO SINGS OFF KEY because it means I can hear.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE PILE OF IRONING AND LAUNDRY because it means I have clothes to wear.

I AM THANKFUL FOR WEARINESS AND ACHING MUSCLES AT THE END OF THE DAY because it means I have been capable of working hard.

I AM THANKFUL FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS because it means I am alive.

I AM THANKFUL FOR TOO MANY EMAILS because it means I have friends who are thinking of me!

Just something I had to share. Makes you think about what we should be grateful for instead of complaining about :)

Smile with your heart!
