I was reviewing my life (I guess illness sometimes makes one do that), and started to feel grateful to God for all the things that I have. So while I was giving my son a bath, I just started to say out loud the things I am thankful for:

  • My family, my husband and my son
  • God, his Word, and his son Jesus
  • That I can see, hear, taste, smell, and touch normally
  • I am grateful for doctors and those in the healthcare profession
  • My job, my pleasant co-workers and boss
  • Public transportation
  • I am grateful for technology, for computers, software, the Internet, and all the electronic things we can’t live without today, such as cell phones, mp3 players, etc.
  • I am grateful for good music
  • Weekends
  • A car
  • People who care enough to send me something through the mail
  • Birthdays
  • Each day I am alive
  • Soap and water
  • Basic necessities, such as toilet paper
  • The money that I do have
  • Knitting and hobbies
  • Books, movies, and cultural events
  • Modern medicine
  • Free speech
  • Our country, the USA
