I keep a journal of "gratitudes." Which in itself makes me smile, whenever I re-read pages from past months and years. This is just a short list, of a few things, I'm thankful for everyday, year around. It has always been, what others might consider "the small things" in life, that make me the happiest. What others may take for granted or may not be able to see the blessing in, usually bring me the greatest joy! It never has taken much to make me happy. . So, here’s the short list:
I'm thankful for low-impact strength workouts, old fashioned epsom salt, and rubbing alcohol.
Essential oils and scented candles.
60 degree thermostat settings.
New fans with STRONG motors.
The warmth of portable heaters to warm my feet.
Ceramic flat irons.
White peach and nectarine body wash.
Pink Himalayan sea salt.
Smiles that light up any room.
The pure praise of toddlers.
Soft robes and heavy comforters straight from the dryer.
Awesome smelling leave-in-conditioners.
Life, health, and strength.
Peacemakers, but... NOT... peacebreakers!
I'm SO grateful that the #HolySpirit is a RESTRAINER!
I'm thankful for thunderstorms that seem to wash away all the stressors of the week and rest.
I'm thankful for the gift of music and song, that has gotten me through many, topsy-turvy-upside-down days.
I'm grateful for all of the people Elohim has strategically placed in my life.
I'm thankful that I've never had to testify at any hearings.. I'd be just like #jeffsessions.. "Look, lady! You're making me nervous!" That would just be too much. Hour after hour?! Person after person?! Question after question?! The whole nation watching?! No, thanks.
I'm so grateful for whoever it is/they are, that's been praying for me. I certainly know someone has been! Prayer changes things.
I'm thankful for things "being as well" as they are.
I'm thankful for the people that the Bible calls "the least among us, and the pure in heart."

I'm thankful that our Father, never puts more on us than we can bear, and always provides, a way of escape.
I'm thankful for confirmation.
I'm grateful for those God has called and anointed, His mouthpieces and vessels. They are valuable.
These are only a few of the things I'm thankful for, as the entire list would be too extensive. Let me know in the comments section, what you are thankful for, today. And, remember...
''Reflect on today's blessings, because every man has plenty. Do not lament over past misfortunes we all have some."
Take a few moments, and let us know, in the comments section, a few of the things that brighten your day!
