80 Reasons to be Thankful

Updated on November 21, 2016

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a published author; books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart, there is no other way.

What Are You Thankful For?

There are so many reasons to be thankful. I had a hand with this lengthy list from many friends and family members.

Along the way my contributors and I also shared lots of laughter. We all know how important humor is. Laughter is something we should all have on our list of reasons to be thankful. Are you aware that laughter helps reduce stress and heal wounds? It does. I wouldn't kid you.

I am always seeking a way to bring on the giggles and I usually succeed. Which makes me very thankful for humor.

A thankful heart makes for a happy heart. Expressing gratitude to others, not only makes you happy, but it also fills the recipient's heart with happiness. Never allow a moment to pass without sharing that you are thankful for someone that makes your heart happy.

Maybe you can relate to one or more of our reasons to be thankful or you have reasons of your own. Either way feel free to add your reasons to be grateful in the comment section below, I would appreciate it.

There is Always a Reason to be Thankful

      Wonderful, uplifting idea, Sunshine! I love to make a 'thank you' list in the evenings before I go to sleep. It is amazing how this little 'ritual' helps with creating a positive, optimistic mindset! And, best of all, it means that I wake up in that positive frame of mind the next morning. Well worth the effort.

      We all have some common reasons to be thankful but some are special and different from one another. I am very much thankful for being the youngest in the family because it is somehow a special experience of life which I cannot express in words other than offering my thanks to all who make my experience a special one.

      Your hubs are awesome and very entertaining! This list is very funny especially #80. Some women can't live without their lipstick or wrinkle cream. I can't live without my toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash. Personal hygiene is a plus. As far as Disney Theme parks, I still love the Magic Kingdom more than any place on earth. I've been going to Disney since the age of 5. There are other parks that I enjoy going to. I still haven't been to Universal Studios though. The rides are spectacular and the food is great. Thanks for sharing.

      I think the best thing to be thankful for is the gift of life and being able to live day by day. there is so much going on in the world, that anything can happen at any time. thanks for your list though. voted up and shared.

      The last time I visited this hub I added that I am thankful for you. After 11 months, I'm even more thankful for you. I must also include hubpages on my list as this is how we met.

      The older I get, the more grateful I am for the simple things. Now, let's talk about #72 on your list. Great sex has been void in my life for such a long time - when I had my last pelvic, my doctor exclaimed "rust'!

      #48! Seriously, it's pretty easy to put together a list of blessings. Number one on my list is waking up to a new day, every day. Thanks for your list!

      Gosh, SFAM...the weeks & months just keep on flying by. Another Thanksgiving upon us with more & more reasons to be grateful.

      It's really no secret that the best way to lift up our spirits when we begin to get down & out....as we all do now & then......is to take serious inventory of all our blessings, gifts & our precious circle of friends and family!.....Then we realize we have "everything "to be happy and thankful!!

      This is pure 100 % beautiful and so inspiring! 80 reasons to be thankful is a pretty impressive feat. If you wouldn't mind...I would like to write my version of reasons to be thankful and maybe we can start a challenge here. I will be sure to pass the baton forward after I complete my list.

      #'s 1, 7, 41-43 are my favorites! Awesome..Up across the board and shared. All the very best this holiday season. I am thankful I came across this to read and enjoy! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

      I could start now and still be listing things to be grateful for by NEXT Thanksgiving of 2016! How wonderful that we're all still a happy, thriving group of friends all these years!.....(except that there are those we miss..:( I wish you all a wonderful day with family & friends, a massive feast and lots of laughter.

      Take time to remember those who are alone or away in the Military....and keep up those random acts of kindness.

      I am very VERY thankful for the privilege of knowing you!

      I am grateful because: 1, I woke up to another day! (well, sort of, "woke up.) 2. Thanks to my Kuerig, my coffee was ready within seconds! 3. The soreness in my joints, assures me I can still move. 4. I found my glasses in less than an hour. 5. I opened my mail to find smiling faces, including my SFAM'S! 6. My DIL is cooking today!!!! 7. I have every intention of stuffing myself today with no regrets.........8. I could list all day, but I'm sure you get my gist.......

      There IS so very much for us to be thankful for!! Hugs, Effer
