      • What is something you are looking forward to?
      • What did you accomplish today?
      • What is your favorite food? When was the last time you ate it?
      • Who is someone in your life that you are grateful for? Why?
      • Think back to a happy memory. Who was there? How did you feel?
      • What books, music, television shows, or movies are you grateful for?
      • Name something that you are grateful that you have.
