‘Tis the season to be thankful. Thankful for dirty dishes? Thankful for eye wrinkles?

It’s all in the way you look at things. I am thankful for:

  1. Dirty dishes. We always have plenty of food.
  2. Sand in my car. My car reliably transports us to the beach.
  3. Dog fur on my clothes. My puppy loves to cuddle.
  4. Expensive grocery store bills. My kids have good appetites.
  5. Long work hours. I have a good job.
  6. An errand to Home Depot. It’s a date with my husband.
  7. Being a chauffeur. My kids have interests.
  8. A noisy house. My family is thriving.
  9. Dirty football cleats. My kids are active.
  10. Gloomy, rainy days. The grass is always green.
  11. Piles of dirty laundry. I am needed.
  12. Stepping on Legos with bare feet. My kids are creative.
  13. My mortgage. My house is my home.
  14. My children yelling. They are normal.
  15. My slow-ass jogging. I am trying.
  16. Eye wrinkles. Lots of smiling and laughing going on.
  17. Exhaustion. My life is full.

Life. Health. Family. Love. Abundance. To be needed. I am thankful for it all.
