Things I am grateful for today:
- dirty teacups; this means I have friends to share my successes and setbacks with
- dirty dishes; this means I have food to eat
- dirty laundry; this means I have clothing and blankets to keep me warm
- dirty floors and rugs; this means I have a house to shelter me and a home to be comfortable in
- hot tea; this means that I have potable water and the comfort of electricity

There are so many things that I take for granted every day, yet every day there are so many things that I am grateful for. I used to keep a gratitude journal. Every night before bed I would make a short list of things I was grateful for. It couldn't be the same things every day so I actually had to THINK about what I was grateful for that day. Not as easy as it sounds. Try it for a week. You might be surprised at what you are grateful for as well as what you take for granted. :)
