employed.

means I have enough to eat.

...for my shadow who watches me work because it
means I am out in the sunshine.

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

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

...for my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

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

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

day because it means I have been productive.

...for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours
because it means that I am alive.

...for getting too much e-mail because it lets me know
I have friends who are thinking of me.
