The mess to clean up after a party; it means I have been surrounded by friends.
The taxes I pay; it means that I'm employed.
The clothes that fit a little too snug; it means I have enough to eat.
My shadow who watches me work, it means I am out in the sunshine.
The spot I find at the far end of the parking lot; it means I am capable of walking.
All the complaining I hear about our government; it means we have freedom of speech.
That lady behind me in church who sings off key; it means that I can hear.
The piles of laundry and ironing; it means my loved ones are nearby.
The lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing; it means I have a home.
My huge heating bill; it means that I am warm.
Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day; it means that I have been productive.
The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours; it means that I am alive.
