I AM THANKFUL...
...for the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.
...for the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been
surrounded by friends.
...for the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have
enough to eat.
...for my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in
...for a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and
gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.
...for all the complaining I hear about the government because it
means we have freedom of speech.
...for the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means
I am capable of walking.
...for the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it
means that I can hear.
...for the piles of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes
...for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it
means I have been productive.
...for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it
means that I am alive.
...for getting too much e-mail because it lets me know I have friends
who are thinking of me.
God's Little Lamb
By Mike Boudreaux
Actually this is my son Christopher s story, but since I was there and
shared in it I feel like it is partly mine also.
One afternoon in the summer of 1996 Christopher, who is called Chris, was
driving back to Porterville, California from Bakersfield where he worked as
a California Highway Patrolman. But before I go on, I must back up and tell
you about my grandson, Christian. Christian was born in January, 1996, at
birth he seemed to be a healthy bouncing baby boy with no problems, but at
age three months it was discovered that he was born with only three
chambers in his heart. The doctors advised of many major surgeries and the
likelihood of him not living past his third birthday. To read the rest of the story go to Stories for the Heart.
