5 Things I’m Grateful for Today


Research shows that counting your blessings can actually help you feel better. I am certain this is one reason God has commanded us over and over again to be grateful. As it says in Alma 34:38, we should “live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which [God] doth bestow upon [us].”

In an effort to live in thanksgiving daily, I thought I’d share some things I am thankful for today. Some of my points are more profound than others, but sometimes small things really do make a big difference!

5 Things I’m Grateful for Today:

  1. New windshield wipers that actually do their job well.
  2. People who think about a child’s love for airplanes when they clean out their sons’ old things. (Thank you – he loves his new toy!)
  3. That my 3yo sometimes actually says please and thank you without being reminded or told to. (it’s slowly sinking in!)
  4. Feeling safe in my own home. A staggering number of people who suffer from domestic abuse and civil unrest don’t have that luxury.
  5. People who are generous with their talents, time, and experience.

Huh. I think it’s working because I feel better already! =)

Tell us: What are some things you are grateful for today?
