Reasons to be Thankful

I was reading a friends blog this morning where she talked about a book she got a few years back. It was more of a devotional daily reading type book that challenged her to be thankful and find joy in the simple things of life.
Every day she wrote down 5 things she was thankful for. She did this for a month and said it is a great thing to have and look back at over the years. Not to mention a little challenging when you get to day 30 and need to think of 5 more things to be thankful for! :-)
So, she proposed a challenge to her fellow readers, to write down 5 things every day that we are thankful for. I decided to take her challenge and thought I would start it here, today, on my blog.
So what are you thankful for today? Can you list 5 things? What about 150 things in 30 days? Take the challenge with me and find out! :-)

1) Text messages from my husband every morning!
2) My sister who understands money and can help me figure things out.
3) Coolish fall mornings and sunshiney warm afternoons!
4) Friends that let me talk, vent, and then laugh with!
5) Lunches from home sent with my kids and made with Mom's love!

I love your list! Each of yours sparked a thought of something else I am thankful for. Oh it feels good.
