~ warm tea and porridge
~ so blessed and lucky
~ technology

~ BBC World News Service, keeps me connected to the global community

Cathy ~

Thank you so much for creating this topic! I so often forget that I have much to rejoice over. I get mired down in depression & then one way or the other, I get reminded of all the good that's in my life, especially when compared to many others around the globe.

so today ....
I'm thankful to be a loved, forgiven child of God
that I have the brains and money to attend college
for the SparkPeople community

Marie

I am thankful for the sparkers who add their gratitude list to my journal. Reading their lists is heartwarming.

Today, I am grateful for the simple joys and gratitudes of
~ a slow day at work
~ getting off 1 hour and 15 minutes early
~ a great conversation with my baby brother who has been sober for 3 years!
~ stopping to really listen to my mom yesterday evening.
~ renewed focus and attention
~ a lovely brisk very brisk walk this morning
~ saving BIG on Black Friday by buying absolutely nothing
~ a good night's sleep
~ looking forward to a long weekend

There are many things that I can be thankful for. Coming back home after visiting family. My oldest son who turns 36 today. second and third chances after blowing it. Forgiveness. The wisdom to make wise choices in what I eat, and choosing exercise. choosing to focus on the positive instead of the negative in life situations. Gods love emoticon

GRAPHICS2, I am so thankful to be an American. I think daily about many poor women around the world and the awful lives they have especially with having so many children because they are married to men that want sons and the women have no say in the matter. I think about women in Aid Camps in Africa and how many are in poor health. So I'm grateful for all I have.

~ I cannot be thankful enough for having dayshift. hence the redundancy. I am thrilled to be on a dayshift. Unforutunately we all have to work late and more hours, but I am still home by midnight and can sleep in. I love it and I am so grateful
~ Turned 44 soon. And I am so at peace with it. I am astonishing myself
~ Putting me first for a change.,.
~ Smell of freshly brewed kenyan coffee!
~ In bed and about to nod off!
