Five Things I Am Grateful For Today:
  1. The crackle of the cold wood steps as I filled the bird feeder this morning.
  2. The smell of wood smoke in the air outside.
  3. Being alive.
  4. That you stopped by here.

5.  This.

"When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. 
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, 
the fault lies in yourself."

What five things are you grateful for today?
