Searching for a book!

Hi MeFi, You've come through for me so many times! Maybe you can help again... I read a book a few years ago. It was a little book, short, too, with chapters on being thankful for (or at least praising) everyday things. I remember specifically there was a chapter on how wonderful baths are, and another on morning coffee. These were short little chapters, essays really. They were like odes to life's small pleasures. I cannot, for the life of me, remember what the book was called. I read it at a friend's house so never owned it myself. Online Google searches aren't being especially helpful, but probably because I can't remember too many details other than the ones I gave. It was maybe a yellow cover? Help? Thank you!

Was it one of the hygge books?

How short is short? Lou Carol Franklin's "Thank God I Can Scratch My Nose: Being Thankful for the Little Things" from 2010 clocks in at 64 pages, and has a yellow cover.

Could it have been The Book of Awesome? By Neil Pasricha, expert of appreciating the little joys in life. The book came from his blog, 1000 Awesome Things, and there's a second book called The Book of (Even More) Awesome, which sometimes has a yellow cover.

Sounds a little like "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...and its all Small Stuff" to me.
