Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Such a good list. Indoor toilets....I didn't know that 80% of the people don't have that luxury.

OK - #417 - so what is a teacake then? Here in northern England that would be a round, yeast-risen, bakedn bun with currants in which you either spread with butter and eat as-is or toast them first, THEN spread them with butter. Either way a roaring fire and a big pot of tea are de rigeur!

Re: 417 . . . my grandmother used to make tea cakes, but I always begged for the tea cake dough. LOL. I still like to eat cookie dough!

I don't guess I know what tea cakes are.

I love warm and COZY houseshoes!!

Gotta love indoor toilets. I grew up with a one holer that was brutal in cold weather.
My back is thinking #420 might be a good way to go.
Again wonderful list.

I am so grateful for indoor toilets. I have heard of Coca Cola cake but never had any.

Oh I love to read this so much. Thank you for reminding us of the little things we should be thankful for.

I really like your list... there are a few things on there I never would have thought of, but are certainly blessings to be thankful for.
