  1. hmm…I like the idea of nice down pillow and a delicious dinner cooked by someone else!!
    I remember reading your post about hummingbirds. You posted their pictures on your blog. It shows your love and care about birds.
    It’s great to be thankful for all these things!!!

    • Yes, it is. It’s great to be grateful about anything and it sure lifted my spirits by writing this list of 50 things to be happy about. I just love watching those cute little birds. When I go out near them then even more seem to gather. Seems like they like the company of humans being around. They will often come and fly next to my big window where I sit and check on me. LOL (That’s what I have decided they are doing anyway. I think they are just curious little birds).

    • LOL! I had fun writing up my list and thought I would throw in some fun things into it. I enjoyed writing it and you are welcome! I hope more people take up the challenge.

  2. What makes me happy about this Priceless, and other’s lists, is that the ‘things’ listed do not have to be ‘things’ at all, or large, or grand or unreachable. But every single day things, moments and experiences, opportunities and interactions. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh yes! When winter is over, uuuuhh, I love it. Awww, wonderful to know so much more πŸ™‚ . Coffee nd funny jokes?! PJ you have a partner here πŸ˜‰

  4. Great stuff! The simple things of life. I really like the no drama one! Thanks for sharing your happy triggers with us!

  5. Even 10 makes me think but you came up with 50+1 and all different. About the food I too would like a cooked meal by someone else for a change. This was interesting. I think I will do it but when I don’t know.

    • Thank you Norma! It is fun to do and really uplifting. And, it’s fun to have a bit of fun with it. Although there were 51 things on my list there were really only 50 things I was thankful for because I skipped number 8.

I would love to read your thoughts...
