This is more than 5 but I was sent a really neat email today that I thought I would share:
I am thankful.........

For the husband who snores all night because he is at home
asleep with me and not with someone else.

For the children who complain about doing dishes, because that
means they are at home and not on the streets.

For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party, because it means, that I
have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I
have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out
in the sunshine.

For a floor that needs mopping, and windows that need
cleaning,because it means I have a home.

For all the complaining I hear about the government, because
it means that we have freedom of speech.

For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking
lot,because it means I am capable of walking and that I have
been blessed with transportation.

For the noise I have to bear from my neighbors, because it
means that I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have
clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
because it means I have been capable of working hard.

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