1. I am grateful for those really soft and fuzzy socks that really aren't socks at all but are meant to be worn around the house to keep your feet warm. I love those things.

2. I am grateful for spontaneous romantic moments.

3. I am grateful for my live-in Chinese tutor who is so patient when I ask him to repeat the same words over and over and over and over and over. He is nothing but encouraging.

"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks."
--Saint Ambrose

"Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love. We can live in thanksgiving daily by opening our arms to those around us. When was the last time you told someone you love how much they mean to you? When was the last time you expressed your gratitude to someone who has always been there for you, someone who has sacrificed for you, someone whose heart has always been filled with hopes and dreams for you? When was the last time you unselfishly reached out to help another in need? Every time we cheer another’s heart, every time we ease another’s burden, every time we lift a weary hand, we show our gratitude to that God to whom we owe all that we have and all that we are."
--Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin
