A List of Thankfulness, the One Per Day Challenge

Years ago, I saw a show where the subject was thankfulness, encouraging everyone to make the choice to record a handful of things we are each thankful for. It could be anything from a meal to a happy moment, such as holding a warm cup of coffee at the start of the day. In that spirit, here is a list of things I'm thankful for, and I'd love for you to comment below, adding your own! This is an active list, which I plan to update daily, up until Thanksgiving (that's November 24th.)

1. A warm cup of coffee in the morning, even if it's decaf
2. Morning sunshine
3. Soft and warm blankets
4. Grapes. (sure, why not?)
5. Take Out
6. More coffee
7. Having extra sewing machine needles on hand (yes, this means I broke one today!)
8. The way morning light filters through the last golden leaves, clinging to the trees
9. Silk Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Pie (don't knock it til you try it!)
10. Backup alarm clocks (if you have to must be a morning person.)
11. It's 11/11/11 :)
12. Meeting wonderful, affirming people at a craft show
13. Taking the day off!
14. Pumpkins
15. Handmade totes, made of sustainable cotton
16. Homemade jam
17. The scent of fresh cookies, wafting through the kitchen
18. Those who support the handmade, "buy local" movement!
19. A vacuum cleaner that workds
20. That strike-through button that allows you to edit typos... (see #19)
21. A daughter who enjoys doing the dishes (by hand, even!)
22. Leftovers
