Things To Be Thankful For

Dear Ann Landers: I hope you will print something a friend in Australia sent me.
I think it's perfect to run on Thanksgiving. -- Bee in Fairfax, Va. 


Dear Bee: Please send my best wishes and warm thanks to your friend in
Australia. Here's the thoughtful piece she sent: 


Things to Be Thankful For

·         Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means you have enough to eat.

·         Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party, because it means you have been surrounded by friends.

 ·         Be thankful for the taxes you pay, because it means you're employed.

 ·         Be thankful that your lawn needs mowing and your windows need fixing, because it means you have a home.

 ·         Be thankful for your heating bill, because it means you are warm.

 ·         Be thankful for the laundry, because it means you have clothes to wear.

 ·         Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means you can walk.

 ·         Be thankful for the lady who sings off-key behind you in church, because it means you can hear.

 ·         Be thankful when people complain about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.

 ·         Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means you're alive.
