Day 26... I am thankful...


Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings, I am thankful that I can hear.
There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible,I am thankful that I can see.
Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising,I am thankful that I have the strength to rise.
There are many who are bedridden.

Even though I grumble at the clothes I wear,I am thankful for the collection of clothes I have.
There are many who don't have an assortment to wear.

Even though some hours of my day is hectic, when socks are lost,toast is burned, tempers are short, my children are so loud,I am thankful for my family.
There are many who are lonely.

Even though my face doesn't look so good like the pictures in the Fashion Magazine,I am thankful that I have all my features in my face complete.
There are many who cannot see, hear and talk.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced, I am thankful for the food we have.
There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job is often monotonous,I am thankful for the opportunity to work.
There are many who have no job.

Even though at times, I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and sometimes wish my circumstances were not so modest,
I am thankful for life.
