26-cups of hot green tea
27-flower scented Scentsy bars
28-news that my dad’s cancer hasn’t spread anywhere else in his body
29-quiet moments spent in prayer
30-the endless laughter I get at watching the squirrels run, play, & chase each other in my backyard (usually before my dog notices them & defends his property from the evil-doers squirrels are). Boy, are squirrels nuts!
31-unexpected gifts of piles of books!
32-afternoon Friday lunch date with my Grandma
33-a job to get up & go to
35-co-workers that make a work day fun
36-seeing deer when I’m out hiking
37-honoring Martin Luther King, Jr & a reassurance of faith in people when they stand up for what is right when “enough is enough”
38-The rhododendron & holly bushes outside my living room bay window that attract dozens of wild songbirds. I get to watch them from only a few inches away (the bird-watcher in me loves this favorite thing about my house).
39-When I’ve wronged & hurt a family member (after I’ve become defensive & full of excuses on “why” I hurt them), my conscious doesn’t let me relax until I’ve apologized & corrected my behavior.
40-my brother came through his surgery with flying colors
