A nice, gentle thread for us all to count our blessing, to pause, breathe and be thankful for all the wee, small things that go right in our days.

Everyone is welcome, no matter our personal beliefs or faiths.

Today, I am grateful for a new year and a fresh start and for time spent with my family.x

Family, health and the time to enjoy them both.

That my children & husband are safe, in this complex & difficult world.

A nice run this morning, the first of my marathon training runs.

Health, happiness and family.

Line dried washing that smells of ice and winter sun
No fever today, so must be getting better
Safe, healthy children

Life in a stable country governed by the rule of law

Today I'm grateful that I have a day off work and got to spend some alone time with dd2, that I got a chance to do some decluttering and that I am able to pay for a little birthday party for dd2 on Sunday smile

Today I was grateful for maternity leave. A lovely day spent with dd2.
A safe place to live, warmth & comfort on a very cold day.

The weekend, even a rainy one
My lovely DH and DDs
Feel lucky to have been born in the time & place that I was. Some of the other options look pretty scary.

A happy home
Somewhere safe & comfortable to sleep
Enough to eat

Lessstressedhemum Fri 13-Jan-17 17:04:09

Adequate food and clean water

Optimist1 Fri 13-Jan-17 18:34:15

Exactly what Lessstressed says - the simple necessities are the foundation for our wellbeing.

oliversax Fri 13-Jan-17 18:43:02

Agreed and realising how lucky you are to have those simple necessities, taking time to appreciate it is the foundation for happiness. I know there can be a lot more to happiness or lack of happiness but it is a good start. It certainly helps me to feel good.

Lovely family & friends
Time to myself to run or to read
Good health

Optimist1 Sun 15-Jan-17 17:52:43

Still close relationship with my stepmother even though my father's been dead for several years.
The independence that having a car gives me.

Sleep in a warm bed
Wee birds at the feeders
Safe, well children
