Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Friday, November 04, 2011

It's Fall... my favorite time of the year. The weather is cooling down, trips to the pumpkin farms, Thanksgiving gluttony, Christmas gatherings...love all of it! I read this poem the other week and I liked it so I thought I would share here. It's all about perspective, right? When I feel like complaining about anything, I will try to remember this poem. I've learned a lot about NOT complaining from Jason. He rarely complains about anything...it's pretty amazing actually.

Miss all of you very much. Hope to see you soon, Cristina

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 am 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 that I have a home.
...the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
...all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
...my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.
...the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
...the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.
...the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I'm alive.
...weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.
