Happy Thoughts

Sometimes so many things can be going wrong that we can have trouble remembering the good things.  Remembering these things can help keep us positive, so I am sharing mine in case they remind someone of forgotten happy thoughts.

Some things I am grateful for:

  • Being able to talk to people online who are dealing with the same illnesses and understand
  • Still being able to do basic things such as feeding myself
  • Any moment I am not nauseous
  • My husband, family, and friends
  • My cat
  • Understanding doctors
  • Wonderful friends I might never have found if it weren’t for my illnesses
  • Delicious food
  • My house
  • Heat or A/C (depending on the temperature)
  • Chocolate
  • My favorite TV shows
  • Ice cream
  • Good movies
  • My laptop
  • Netflix
  • The internet
  • A good laugh
  • Yoga pants
  • Indoor plumbing
  • Memory foam
  • Music
  • Bandanas
  • Being able to see
  • Being able to hear
  • Having easy access to clean water
  • A nice view
  • Hearing the birds sing
  • Good memories
  • Hugs
  • The opportunity to help others through my writing
What are you grateful for?


  1. My dogs
    The quality of light in my memories
    Birds singing
    The fact that my W/D are within 10 feet of my bed
    Reliable transportation
    My online friends <3
    Being well enough to listen to music
    Being well enough to buy my own groceries
    Being well enough to make an easy meal
    A roof over my head

  2. My loving husband
    My grandson
    The colors, textures, and fragrances of flowers
    The tastes, textures, and delights of food
    The melodies, rhapsodies, and symphonies of musical notes
    The choice to be grateful
    The grace and mercy of Jesus

  3. Reading inspiring websites (like this one!) that remind me I am well enough to read, learn and sit for a bit!
    Silence is good, it means a peaceful mind for me.
    Easy food
    Discovering new easy healthy food's
    Cooking when I can stand long enough, and eating when I can't!
    Discovering and learning to be a friend to my self
    My husband
    Funny movies
    After all this body pain, I can still laugh.
