What do you count as a Blessing?

Ok, I need a little help here. My next project is a "Counting our Many Blessings" accordian book. I made one for myself last fall and love it but it's rather personal to my own family to do the same for a class project. I need help expanding on this question,

What do you count as a blessing in your life?

Some of the categories I used in my previous book were:

the miracle of LIFE
the comforts of HOME
the bonds of FAMILY
the happiness in MEMORIES
the art of RELAXATION
the beauty of NATURE
the LOVE of a lifetime

Can you help me add to this list? I'm having a little trouble thinking outside of my own box.
Please post suggestions in the comments section. I'd love to see what you come up with.

Here are photos of a couple of past projects of mine. Will upload photos of the first two class projects in the next couple of days. Thanks for looking.

This is the inside of a Teacher's accordian book I did for Teacher Appreciation week. Inside each pocket were special teacher inspirational or humorous quotes or sayings.

This is what the Teacher book looked like on the cover and with the book closed up.

This was a special book I put together for my husband for our anniversary. I assembled various photos that went along with the lyrics to the song "100 Years" by Five for Fighting.

More to come!
