80 Reasons to be Thankful

Updated on November 21, 2016

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a published author, her 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.

      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'!

LOL I am thankful for my 30 year teaching career, which I think taught me more than I ever realized at the time. I am thankful that I still have dreams to pursue and still get excited over that.

      "10. Freshly ground flax seed ... works better then most prescription drugs do for good health!"

      I concur here, 100% when it's important to get "the runs" once in a while!

      As you say, "laughter is the best medicine," especially when combined with Flax!

      I love positive hubs, and this one is worthy of your username. : ) Thank you for these valuable reminders. We all have so much to be thankful for; we just have to choose to focus on it. This is quite a popular hub, I see, and deservedly so!

      Eighty ways to be thankful indeed! The simple ones are my favorites: warm socks, wisdom of the elderly, my arms, etc. I didn't miss the mention of Johnny Depp!

      There's always something to be thankful for and We're thankful for you, Linda for spreading so much positive radiation in the face of all the adversity you may have faced. You are truly an inspiration and I say this with no conceit or flattery. Trust me, I know an inspiration when I see one. Love this!
