Things I'm thankful for #1

Yesterday I was talking with a friend about how much we have to be thankful for. So I decided to write a list. The reason I'm sharing it is because I read a post on a blog awhile ago about what a lady was thankful for about her husband. It challenged me because some of the things she mentioned are things I just take for granted in my husband!  So hopefully this list might challenge someone else to realize their blessings.
1) I'm alive today!
When I was around 5yrs old I remember stepping onto the road to cross it and a driver slamming on his brakes. I was nearly run over. A few years later, me and my younger sister were swimming at the beach and the tide was going out. We got caught in the tide and nearly drowned. As a teenager learning to drive I had many close calls, and when I did roll my car, I got nothing more than a bump on my head.
2)I'm usually painfree.
3) I can see, hear, smell, feel, walk etc.
4) The ability/energy to run my household.
5) A house to live in.
6) A godly heritage.
7)Appliances that make life easier--oven, fridge, freezer, jug, vacuum cleaner, washing machine etc.
8) Electricity.
9) Laughter.
10) Humor.
11) Smiles. :)
12) Trials to keep us close to God.
13) God is in control.
14) Colors
15) Such variety of foods
16) 3 healthy children
17) Marriage
18) Beautiful Flowers
19) Running water in my house
20) Religious Freedom
There is too many for one post, so will share some more next time!
