Thankful Thursday: A Few of My Favorite Things

"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." Proverbs 17:22
"When the dog bites. When the bee stings. When I'm feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad." Familiar lyrics from The Sound of Music. Remember?

And in a week full of needs, sickness and stress God surrounds me with a few of my favorite things, cheers my heart and restores my soul:
  • My family all gathered safe from distant lands
  • Warm lemon tea with honey and modern medicine to relieve and heal 
  •  Stacks of books
  • Portable laptop and writing by the fire
  • A story's first draft
  • Handwritten thank you from a dear friend
  • Electronic messages that encourage 
  •  A new writers group full of dreams and hope
 These are a few of my favorite things. What are some of your favorite things that bring comfort and pleasure, especially when you're under the weather?
