Things I'm thankful for today.

I'm reading a good book right now.  "The Art of Happiness" by the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler.  The book is wonderful and a good reminder to always reach for compassion before anything else.  It's not always easy but I tried it at work with a coworker on Thursday and it helped.  Or course the trick is to remember and practice, everyday. 

I'm thankful that I'm healthy and that those I love are healthy.

I'm thankful I have a job I love, most of the time.

I'm thankful that roof over my head is paid for.

I'm am truly thankful for my health.  I care for people everyday who have cancer.  I see how indiscriminate cancer is.  It is a constant reminder that life is precious.

I'm thankful for a delicious supper.

I'm thankful for new shoes for work.

I'm thankful for my bed and the lovely man waiting for me there. 

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Great list! Simple pleasures are the best.

    Having dealt with cancer a few years ago, I am particularly grateful for good health. It's something I will never take for granted.

  2. Compassion first, absolutely. I have to remind myself constantly.

    I am grateful for so much right now, not the least of which is my fiancés slow but steady healing.

  3. compassion and gratitude, compassion and gratitude. sometimes i have to remind myself over and over again.

    i'm grateful i'm feeling better and i have a house near the sea to decorate. and i'm grateful for my family most of all, even last one of them.
