Last week, Lizzi invited us to combine our Ten Things of Thankful post with participation in Dawn's 50 Happy Things challenge. I had already written my TToT post for last week, so figured I would join in this week instead. If I understand the rules correctly, we were to set our timer for 15 minutes and just start listing things for which we are thankful. I spent about half that time brainstorming the following list. I didn't try to prioritize. I didn't try to remember anything in particular; I just sat in my bed, looked out the window, enjoyed some mango/apricot juice, listened to the rain, and typed, There are more than 50 items listed, and thousands more I didn't mention:
satisfaction of a job well-done
home improvement projects
sing-alongs (Raindrops on Roses, and Whiskers on Kittens . . )
harmony--in music and in relationships
There are so many happy things in the world, and so much to be thankful for, and so much good to be found. May we take everything positive from 2016 and carry it on into 2017. Happy New Year!
