We have so much to be grateful for

When we think of all the things we're grateful for (and, even when life seems bleak, we have so many), most of us naturally go for the "biggies": our friends, our family, our health (if we have it), yadda, yadda, yadda.  But I've been keeping a gratitude journal for the last few weeks (one of my New Year's resolutions, of sorts) having made the commitment to not repeat myself (at least not often), and I've been happily surprised by the things that I have found that I am truly grateful for. 

So...without further ado...some of my favorite gratitudes for the first two weeks of 2012:
I am grateful for...
  • Tweets and blogs that make me laugh
  • Homemade powdered sugar donuts
  • The library
  • Daily "Kitteh" posts
  • The fact that I am mostly sane
  • Brave and fearless squirrels
  • Peanut butter
  • Soft, clean sheets
  • Indoor plumbing and flush toilets
  • The passage of time
This list gives me such a sense of wonder--not to mention some always needed giggles--and reminds me that the present and the future have so much to offer
