Far from an exhaustive list, but a mere snapshot of life as I see it today. As I read back through the list, some of these things seem silly (tampons? Really, I’m thankful)  but everything on this list is truly something I’m thankful for in some way. I stumbled on a quote a couple of weeks ago that has stuck with me:  “It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.” 

So today, I’m choosing thankful.It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.
