Wow! Sometimes I act like it's hard to come up with anything to be thankful for. When I saw 5 things per day, I thought, "Wow, what a challenge!" then I realized how silly that was. It shouldn't be a challenge. Thanks for reminding me that I have TONS to be thankful for.

Wow, great list! Amazing what you can come up with when you really stop to think about your blessings!

Inspiring, I need to do the same. Having a list like this will surely help on days I don't feel like there's anything to be thankful for (eg when I throw pity parties!)
