Thankful This Advent Season

I am thankful for my $200 heating bill this month.....because it means I have a home to heat.

I am thankful that my jeans do not fit....because it means I have enough to eat.

I am thankful for the constant "noise" of my home....because it is filled with love.

I am thankful for the chaos of my days.....because it means I have a reason to organize.

I am thankful for the kids bickering....because it means I have been blessed with a large family.

I am thankful for the dirty laundry.....because it means we have clothes to wear.

I am thankful for the dirty dishes....because we have food to cook.

I am thankful for occasional argument with my spouse....because it means neither of us have to be perfect.

I am thankful for confession....because He has given us a Sacrament for His Forgiveness.

I am thankful for the Mass.....because it means we have a Savior.

I am thankful for my cross....because it brings me closer to Him.
