In the words of Howard W. Hunter, “As we approach this Thanksgiving, we should be grateful for the goodness of the Lord to us. Every day should be a day of thanksgiving.”
In an effort to be even more aware of my many blessings from above, I’m going to begin this special Thanksgiving week by enumerating a few of the things I’m especially grateful for. My hope is that you’ll do the same, and that by our joint efforts, we’ll all be a little more inspired and aware of all the good stuff in our lives.
Music, especially Christmas hymns like “Carol of the Bells.”
The caramel color of the half bath; it’s so luscious looking.
Words…like turquoise and stellar and williwaw.
The hugs I gave and received from loved ones this week…and the ones I anticipate this coming week.
The yummy Ghirardelli chocolate brownies I baked earlier today.
The gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace it brings.
Okay, it’s your turn. Please post something that you’re especially grateful for.

Good friends, good health, warmth on a cold evening, and especially family. Happy Thanksgiving, what a wonderful idea!
Thanks for visiting my blog and responding in such a nice way. I’ve been thinking about the blessing of health a lot lately. With a couple of really sick people in my circle of friends and family, the reality of what a blessing it is to be able to walk and talk and run and eat and dance and drive is more real.
I honestly never know how to answer this without feeling like I’ve (honestly) left something out.
Me too. I don’t know whether I’ve told you this or not, but about seven or eight years ago a friend and I decided to start agratitude journal in which we wrote five things we were thankful for each day. We’ve both kept it up, and it’s amazing how aware it makes you. I find myself paying more attention to what’s going on so that I can write about it that night. An acquaintance once asked how I wsas able to come up five things per day, and I truthfully responded that sometimes it was hard to stop at five.
