Thankful Thursday - What are YOU thankful for?

Is it Thursday already? What a week! Spent some time tonight reflecting on ALL that I have to be thankful for and this hymn came to mind!
Count Your Blessings
When upon life's billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged,
Thinking all is lost
Count your many blessings,
Name them one by one
And it will suprise you
What the Lord has done.

Count your blessings,
Name them one by one
Count your blessings,
See what God has done
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one
Count your many blessings,
See what God has done.

Are you ever burdened
With a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy
You are called to bear?
Count your many blessings,
Ev'ry doubt will fly
And you will be singing

When you look at others
With their lands and gold
Think that Christ has promised
You His wealth untold
Count your many blessings,
Money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven,
Nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict,
Whether great or small
Do not be discouraged,
God is over all
Count your many blessings,
Angels will attend
Help and comfort give you
To your journey's end.
So, when it has been a long week or a bad day or a just so-so day, we can find comfort in counting our blessings - no matter how big or how small. As always, I am thankful for the "Big 3" faith, family and friends but I am also thankful for the little things - my new coffee pot (had to return 2 that didn't work!), my newly painted bathroom (thanks to my father in law) and that tomorrow is Friday!!
What are YOU thankful for today?
