Funny Things I’m Grateful For

peacockTeeth, spoons, peacocks, blue, ice-cream sundaes. In May of last year, I had an epiphany. I began to list “Three Things I’m Grateful For” every day. Not only did I list them, but I kept them in my mind throughout the day. This made me happy, caused me to smile more, and generally kept me calm and at peace even in situations that could become stressful. I have decided to pursue this challenge again this year and during the month of ice cream sundaeJune, I will meditate on things I am grateful for–not the super spiritual or super profound things, although I am eternally grateful for those. This list will be those mostly unnoticed kind of things that we would miss if we didn’t have them. What would life be like without teeth? Think about it! And what if you had never seen a peacock spread her tail feathers or tasted an ice-cream sundae?

teethI am going into June being thankful for teeth, spoons, peacocks, blue, and ice-cream sundaes. You’ll see more of my list over at Dare to Be Happy Facebook page, and please feel free to add to my list.

Today’s Verse: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

SharySignatureI’d love to hear some unusual things you are thankful for.

  1. I think peacocks are beautiful! Colors, so nice that God colored the world for us! And teeth, yes! Good list!

    • So glad to hear from you, Mare! Hope you’ve been writing. I’ll hop over there and see. Have a nice day!

  2. I’m thankful for crayons, especially the huge pack of Crayolas. Also, the new shady grey pack.

    • Oh, yes! You made me smile. Nothing like a new pack of 64’s! I haven’t seen the new shady grey pack. My little Emme will be ready to color soon so I will have to get ready. Thanks for bringing the smile to my face!
