Three things to be thankful for today

Some days it is really hard to find anything to be thankful for when we feel overcome by the darkness and fog of depression. If I look hard enough, I can find something to be thankful for.

I would like to encourage others to write down three things they are thankful for, and to realise there is a sense of hope available to us all. Sometimes it is just a little hard to find!

So my three things for today are:

1: The lovely singing of birds in the morning as they welcome in the new day

2: The ability to read and write

3: A lovely hot shower.

Wishing all the "family" in BB Land a day full of noticing the nice things in life. Kind regards to you all, from Dools.

I'm having a little trouble thinking of three things today as I'm rather tired and a little flat today. Okay, must be something:

1) My iris plants are starting to flower

2) I managed to pull some weeds up today, only 1,000,000 to go!

3) I can read better with my new glasses!

Anyone else want to try  writing what they are thankful for?
