How did 2018 go by so quickly? I’m joining Dawn Landau’s positive affirmation challenge via Rochelle Wisofff. You can find the directions here on Dawn’s post. Do set your timer. I did and was surprised that in 15 minutes I exceeded 50 things I was thankful for and when the timer went off I really wasn’t finished. I could have written so many more. The number order has nothing to do with importance. This is totally stream of consciousness. 

I dare you to join the fun. I double dare you!!! 


Thank you, Dawn for doing this again. 😀

  1. I have found so much that I am thankful for just by reading this. In the last few minutes, I am thankful for:

    1. Breath
    2. My kids
    3. My family
    4. My cats
    5. Friends I have spoken to on WordPress
    6. Friends I have made and spoken to on Mixer
    7. Sight
    8. Hearing
    9. Taste
    10. The ability to smile.
    11. Books
    12. Audiobooks
    13. Ability to read and write

    That is just in a couple of minutes. If I was to have the time and thought about it a lot, I imagine there is so much more that I can be thankful for.

    Thank YOU Courtney for posting this. I appreciate you

  2. This is so beautiful…and so much fun…and so similar to my points of gratefulness. (Except, I can’t say green grass or blooming trees in December here in NE). ;-( But I like the ones you put in caps – the only one missing that would be on my list is….CHOCOLATE. 😉 xo
    P.S. I think I’ll double dare the writers in my Creative Writing classes to do this…

  3. Yay, Courtney! So glad you find your way to my annual Attitude of Gratitude! I love your list, and as I’ve told each of the other bloggers who’ve done this each year, I am always amazed by how many things I find on other lists, that I too am grateful for. Gratitude begets more gratitude! I’m adding a link on my blog, back to this post. I noticed that you didn’t add yours to the InLinkz. If you have trouble, go to my Tales From the Motherland FB page and leave me a PM with your email address. I’ll add you. It’s been glitchy this year. Thanks for joining us and happy 2019!

  7. Dear Courtney/Kim,

    Funny how we don’t think about all we have until we sit down to write them out. I was amazed at my own list. I do notice that two things you put in caps are two of my things…COFFEE and WINE. ❤ Thank you for the nod. 😉

    Shalom and a belated Happy New Year.

    • Thanks Rochelle! And you’re welcome!
      I saw that those were also on your list. I was reminded about chocolate by someone else so I uhm.. well, I cheated and added it with the wine! 😉 But you HAVE to have chocolate with WINE!!! Right??? ❤
