Psalm 107:21 says, "Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!"
But, don't count the things you like, searching for a number. The sum will always change. Your attitude towards life will always waver, discontent with different numbers. The only thing that stays the same day after day is the love and wisdom that God has. He knows how many blessings you need each day, and you may disagree. God's blessings--no matter the total--always equal enough.
When I'm struggling, knowing God's working on something in my life, but I can't see it yet, sometimes I just pull out a scrap piece of paper. Wiggling my pen between my fingers, I let the frustration settle. Before long, I can write with ease. Blessings start coming to mind. Sometimes I can fill pages and other times, only a couple lines. That's enough.
So, look for those things that remind you of God's hand in your life, the things you don't need but have, the things that pillow the tears when they do come, the things to see when you get back up from a fall, the slightest conveniences, and anything else that doesn't put a frown on your face.
