When I woke up this morning,
This thought was in my head.
My wife of five and twenty years,
Beside me in the bed.
Thereís much that I am thankful for-
A roof, and meal to eat-
My family safe beneath that roof,
The fellowship so sweet.
My health, itís good considering-
The miles Iíve left behind.
Thank God that drugs and drinking
Destroyed not my mind.
I glad I was a cowboy,
Iím glad I know the West...
Iím glad that Iím still married-
And friend, I must confess....
She should have left me years ago
The way Iíve treated her.
Sheís been to me an angel,
Iíve been to her a cur.
In spite of those mistakes Iíve made
My children love me still,
And by the grace of God above-
I trust they always will.
Iím thankful for the truck I drive
The boots upon my feet,
The hat I got almost for free
To shade me from the heat
.Iím thankful for the friends I have
Their number may be few-
But past experience has proved
Their love for me is true.
Iím thankful for the line of work
The Lord to me has gave-
But more than all the things above
Iím thankful that Iím saved.

Live large, people!

It does sound like you have much to be thankful for, showing your appreciation is the best thank you you can give.

Happy Thanksgiving! You truly do have a lot to be thankful for, as do we all.  

God bless America, my home sweet home.
