Thanksgiving may be the one day of the year when we focus on giving thanks, but why should this day get all the fun? Each and every day offers something special to appreciate, from that scent of fresh flowers in the morning to that surge of relaxation you get when your head hits the pillow. And Good Health. Even if your health isn’t great, it could be worse and you likely still have some working parts to be thankful for. So send a “get well soon” bouquet to your friends.

Here are 40 everyday things to be thankful for, because you don’t need a Thanksgiving holiday to celebrate the little things everyday!
