Here are my 5 a Day (5 Thanks, that is--not Fruits and Veggies) from this past week:

New Year
good books
strong immune system
peace about schooling Joel differently next year
Mama's sacrificial care serving Aunt Linda
warmth of sun
faith-building Facebook chats
humor in the littlest things
freshly ironed curtains
healthy children
joy of being invited to someone's house
Sarah's refreshing reunion at NLBC
Stephen's fervor for God
electric blankets
femininity
refreshing time at Ray and Carla's
body heat
pretty jewelry
that our class can go to Biz Town again
friendly employees at Bed, Bath, & Beyond
fun Jeopardy! review game in class today
Paul's fidelity and moral purity
Joel's voice
shrimp alfredo Sarah made tonight of her own volition, from scratch
metaphoric language
public libraries and the means to pay unspeakable fines because...well...never mind
my father's active, scientific mind
reliable transportation
memory
assorted means of communication
the relative ease with which I'm memorizing Habukkuk 3
the Bible

Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for the little things as well as the big things.

Great list! We should all have a gratitude journal! I've started one but don't keep up with it like I should! Thanks for sharing yours.
Have a great week!
