Gosh, I'm not sure if you mean something tangible, like a favorite piece of jewelry, or living, such as a pet...or a belief. Well, there are many ways I can answer this.
I am so grateful for the many blessings in my life and I try to stay aware of them throughout my day. Things we often take for granted, such as indoor plumbing, isn't a reality for all people, so I keep that in mind; food that most people in America have no problem having available to them, isn't easily attainable for many people in the world; education in America is taken for granted and disrespected by many students...and there are children in other countries who die for the right to education.
There are also many things that people complain about just because it inconveniences them: the rain, for example, when someone planned an outdoor event. Instead of realizing that the rain helps the crops to grow and keeps drought conditions at bay, and moving to 'Plan B', there is much grumbling.
I know it is human nature to find the negative in our lives, but its much more pleasant to focus on the positive. So, I am grateful for many 'little' things, and I cherish those.
A little thing in my life that I cherish is my bed-just an ordinary, (and secondhand), but so lovely to feel comfy at night and pull the covers up to get a good nights rest. When I worked the midnight shift and would crawl into bed in the morning while the rest of the world woke up, I cherished that bed even more! Now that it I am working day shift, I still love crawling into bed when I am sleepy, knowing I am safe, warm, and will rest peacefully.
Great question, Michelle.
