There is a blessing for almost everything in Judaism. There is a blessing for getting up in the morning, for going to sleep, for eating, for seeing wondrous things, for experiencing new things, for the occurrence of good things, for the unfortunate occurrence of bad things, for hearing the news of someone's death, for seeing someone you have not seen in a long time, for going to the bathroom, for studying Torah, for going on a journey, for fulfilling almost any religious commandment, and for just about everything else in life.

In the Talmud, one Rabbi instructs us to recite one hundred blessings throughout the day, His teaching is seen as a way for us to develop a posture of gratitude, Jewish tradition encourages a daily practice of reciting blessings of thanksgiving to God for the goodness in our lives each day.
