I find it helpful to start my days with positive affirmations. Often these include reflecting on what I’m thankful for. Often these include family, friends, my health, a sunny sky and more. In I am Thankful for – Thanksgiving 2022 Today I’m also sharing a unique perspective from Nancy J. Carmody called “I Am Thankful For…”

I Am Thankful For
by Nancy J. Carmody
“I am thankful for
…..the mess to clean up after a party
because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
…..the taxes that I pay
because it means that I’m 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.
…..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.
…..that lady behind me in church who sings offkey
because it means that I can hear.
…..lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing
because it means I have a home.
…..my huge heating bill
because it means that I am warm.
…..weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day
because it means that I have been productive.
…..the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours
because it means that I am alive.”
– Have a plan
– Stay informed
– Get involved
