My Gratitude List for 2108 in 15 Minutes

I'm setting a timer for 15 minutes and then letting the thoughts flow. 1> My husband 2. My beautiful son 3. Clean drinking water anytime I want it. 4. Family 5. A job 6. A house that's paid for 7. A working car, soon to be paid for 8. Loving friends 9. Modern medicine 10. A church home. 11. A great pastor 12. Shoes to keep my feet warm and dry 13. Decent clothes 14. Supermarkets with an abundance of all kinds of foods 15. Bug-free house 16. My dog, Zed 17. My cat, Wild Thing 18. A smartphone 19. A new laptop 20. My first published book. 21. My guitar 22.

Not having to worry where my next meal is coming from. 32. Imagination and creativity 33. No hospitalizations this past year 34. Having had second chances 35. The surprise visit from my son on my birthday. It was a BIG blessing. That's what came to my mind in fifteen minutes. I was still typing more when the alarm went off. I am a two finger typist, so no doubt would have had a longer list if I typed 60 words a minute. 2018 had a few bad moments, but gratitude for the past year's blessings outweighs all the down time. What about you?


  1. Dear Susan,

    I'd say you did a fine job in fifteen minutes. Particularly for someone who is a two finger typist. Wonderful list.

    Shalom and Happy New Year,
