    We are all so busy with our daily lives that sometimes we don't stop and take a minute to appreciate our surroundings.  Do that now. Stop.  Look around.  What are you thankful for right now?

    Me-I have a good job, a warm cozy sweater on, and dinner plans with the love of my life tonight.

    I'm thankful,  but I don't know whom to thank. Who invented that word Whom anyway? Sounds like it were made for butlers or snobs. smile I do thank my wife. No matter what she may say to you, I love her.

      No, thank you but the beer is warm, the women cold and I'm hot under the collar. So I guess I'll be fine.

    Woke up to rain. Lots of it.

    I'm grateful for the rain. Grateful to wake up and have a fresh start every day. Grateful I came through so many horrible things in life and learned lessons I will always appreciate it. Grateful my life is as good as it is. Grateful that even the bad can be used for good.

    Glad to feel all the emotions I do.

    Wrote this this morning. Sounds a bit down but is more reflective:

    ...and troubles fall like rain, washing away in silent protest as nature feels sharp air cutting jaggedly at its dying blossoms, rich with decay, accepting its losses, and overpowered by the seduction of sleep. And for a moment, I too, mourn.

    My goodness, all this gratitude is contagious...fair makes me want to burst into a chorus of "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning"!

    Thanks for reminding me that every day is a day for which to be grateful!

    I am grateful to wake up. I am grateful to be on this side of the green. I am grateful for coffee. I am grateful for Hub Pages, to have something fruitful to do as I drink my morning coffee. After I finish my coffee, I will find something else for which to be grateful...

    It makes me smile to see everyone catching the "thankful-bug!!!"

    Just to add on a little bit;
    Thankful for my fingers ability to type the words
    Thankful for my mind that can think the words
    Thankful for my eyes that can see the words

    Realize, right now how lucky we all are.
