I'm highly thankful for coffee right now.

Me, too, Gardener.  (Enjoying my carefully, "primitively" brewed, pour-over coffee.)

I'm doing cold brewed Kona blend (coarse grind). Brewing via: https://www.amazon.com/Coffee-Genie-Cold-Brew-Maker/dp/B07FTNXVKM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1547268431&sr=8-2&keywords=coffee+genie

With heavy whipping cream, it tastes like chocolate milk. Much better than hot brewed as it's less harsh.

thankful for watching my 8 year old play piano with the 2 year old on his lap the way I used to do it with said 8 year old when he was little.    Also thankful that said 2 year old is more cooperative lately and is having fewer meltdowns I think having his mama home and healthy is making things less chaotic he has more of a predictable routine

God's inexplicable mercy and goodness
The Eucharist
Confession
My wife
My son
The child currently growing in my wife's womb

...though all of this is arguably included in "God's inexplicable mercy and goodness"

Thankful for hearing what Chestertonian is thankful for!
Children say that people are hung sometimes for speaking the truth.

If I am not in the state of grace, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me

- Saint Joan of Arc
