Sunday's Positive Pals and Grateful Gals

Good evening my friends!  Today's blessings are time for sleep, a restful day to get over that UTI after taking my holistic meds that seem to help. 

I've answered all of you who posted on Saturday's thread, so thought I'd start this new one for Sunday. I'll offer a good story here, but it does have Lord in it, for Heaven's sake, let it be!  It's not promoting any religion of any kind.  So here goes:

 

TO BE THANKFUL FOR
Author Unknown


 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'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.

 A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that
need fixing because it means I have a home.

 All the complaining I hear about our government because it means we
have freedom of speech.

 The space I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I
am capable of walking.

 My huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

 The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that
I can hear.

 The piles of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to
wear.

 Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I
have been productive.

 The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means
that I'm alive.

 Getting too much email bogs me down but at least I know I have
friends who are thinking of me.

 Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when The alarm rings, thank
you, Lord, 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, thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.

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

 Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost,
toast is burned and tempers are short, thank you, Lord, for My family.
There are many who are lonely.

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

 Even though the routine of my job often is hard, thank you, Lord, for
the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.

 Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my
circumstances were not so modest, thank you, Lord, for life.

 Pass this on to the friends you know.
A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives with Beauty, Joy, and Grace
and  makes the world we live in A Better and Happier Place.

Re: Sunday's Positive Pals and Grateful Gals

I'm glad to see the daily thread is getting into its groove again!  I don't have anything to post, but I have enjoyed reading it from time to time.  I do miss some of the more religious content (is it okay to say that?), but the positive thoughts are welcome as well.  I am a lapsed Catholic who enjoyed the former thread for its educational value and will look to the new thread for the same.

@gloriajean...YOU bring a blessing to many on this forum, myself included.

 

May I offer you a nice warm cup of tea on this beautiful evening? Or, perhaps you'd rather enjoy a mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream. It'll be my pleasure to serve you. Sit back, kick off your shoes and relax. Here is a nice fluffy, cozy pillow to place behind your back. Enjoy.
