Thankful Thursday

For an interesting twist, I thought I would make a list of what I'm thankful I don't have:

Cable TV
bothersome in-laws
serious health issues
a child with serious health issues
a boat
a swimming pool
a blue tooth cell phone
a debilitating addiction
an unhealthy relationship with a family member
a gas guzzling vehicle
the urge to watch American Idol
a huge ego
the belief that Oprah and Dr. Phil know it all
the answers to LOST
satin sheets
annoying neighbors
a minister who condemns us for our failures
doubt about my faith

Great twist! You are so right about Dr. Phil and Oprah!

Cheryl said...

Great. I think we get caught in what we are "unhappy" about at times that we forget to be thankful! Thanks for sharing!

Great idea. After my tivo cut of the end of American Idol last night, I too wish I didn't have the urge to watch it, but I do! Here's how it went down.

Amen on the Oprah and Dr. Phil comment! I enjoyed this.

Too Funny - except not having a boat. :) My hubby and all the kids are water skiers and they love our very old boat! It's been precious times on the lake. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

What an original idea! That was very good. You should start up a new thing with this.

What a great post! I agree with all except the swimming pool. It was in the 90s here today. :)

What a great list! And a reminder of what is worth value...
