1. My husband walked me to my car when I left work. 2. Patients that make me feel better. I like hearing cool testimonies or just meeting people with great attitudes despite their health problems. It makes me stop, think, shut up and get a grip on my own petty problems. 3. My health. 4. My sweet parents. 5. Those cold reese cups. I've been eating one a day with a glass of milk and I really enjoy it.

5. My sweet husband shelled out some of the beans I picked this morning while I was getting groceries.
4. Thankful the food in our garden has done well. It's going to keep me busy for the next week or so.
5. Remember the saying, "thank God for dirty dishes" then it goes on and says something like it means we've had food to eat and been with our family. I'll have to find that whole saying and post it sometime.

This is my daily delight diary. My goal is to post at least 5 things that make me happy or things I am thankful for each day I log onto blogger. No matter what kind of a day I'm having, this is my reminder that I am blessed.
A pastor, a teacher and a coworker inspired this idea. Several years ago my pastor preached a message titled, "It Could Always Be Worse." The sermon talked about how no matter what your going through God can get you through it and you can almost always look around and see someone going through a tougher time than you. The teacher was my psychology teacher about a year ago. He said that one way to keep your mind sharp is to reflect on your entire day before going to bed, and write down the best and worst thing that happened. Lastly my coworker talked about keeping a gratitude journal of things she was thankful for and writing in it each day.
