Grateful today for answered prayers for my friends.
One found out that her cancer has NOT come back even though her blood work was not normal. All other tests confirmed no cancer for her. Another friend has been battling terrible side effects to meds for awhile and today was the first day she felt good and was able to drive.

It's ok...never can have too much gratitude!

I'm grateful today for sunshine even though the temps are lower than normal.
Also really grateful to have taxes done and my business accounting caught up...I just have to do end of the month invoicing next week and then my quarterly accounting will be done!

Grateful today for a great vet who took a lot of time today and thoroughly checked out my sweet old lab, Ginger. She's had trouble with weak legs and getting up so hopefully tweaking her meds will work.

KRISEDMONDSON...yes you are in the dramatic teen years! Hang in there!
Our daughter is 10 and has had some issues that we've been actively getting help for since she was 5 1/2. We expect her teenage years to be a little rougher than normal, but we'll get through it.

Grateful today that my DH was willing to go out and get groceries since I don't feel all that well.

Hang in there with your daughter's moods. My daughter is 17, uggg 18 in April. She is moody too but it has gotten so much better the last year. My husband is very supportive and it is so helpful. We have to be a team or the kids will try to divide and conquer.
Best wishes and I am thankful the weekend starts NOW!

good one...KRISEDMONDSON!

Grateful that my DH and I are on the same page regarding our daughter's behaviors and how to deal with her. They all did a great job yesterday getting a birthday cake and cards made for me and we had a great family dinner. And then she got herself into trouble. We dealt with it well, but she's still in a 'mood' about some things. Just glad I don't have to deal with it all alone.

Grateful for all the wonderful music I get to expose my students to...my music history students are starting the Romantic period this week (which is my favorite) and we've been listening to some wonderful music. It's so hard to pick only a few pieces from the period to learn!

Grateful for the beautiful Neil Young concert I attended last night. He played solo in a small-ish theatre (he usually plays in a huge stadium).

Grateful for lessons learned about myself through my Swede (some are painful, some are good)

Grateful for milder weather

Grateful for my birding pal who helped me identify birds yesterday and coaxed me to go out birding even though I didn't feel great (felt great by the time I got down to the lake! of course!)

Grateful my favourite co-worker is back from holiday today

Yes...Carla I agree. It is not as bitterly cold here in the South, but colder than normal so a lot of people are having trouble with water pipes bursting (they don't insulate well here) and heat pumps not keeping up. We have been fine, but my kids' school had two pipes burst yesterday. They caught it right away and did not have to evacuate so we're thankful for that.

Thankful I was able to get a little extra rest this morning and have a better outlook now!

Today I am grateful that I can work from home so that when my kids are sick I am not having to take time off work to take care of them. I used to have to do that so I remember how stressful it is to balance work and home responsibilities. It's still a balance, but it is so much easier now that I can work from home.

I'm doing a gratitude program and get daily emails. Today's gratitude affirmation is :

I give thanks to the miracle that is my body

Of course because of my heart and kidney problems, I'm not always feeling that my body is a miracle, but I'm working on it!

Part of the reading for today says:
"Nourishing your body and mind is the finest way to express gratitude for who you were created to be"
Which I needed to be reminded of because I've been skipping my morning smoothies and just having crackers or toast for supper because I'm so tired.

Grateful for quality time with my kids this weekend.
My DH and I are concerned about his job. Company wide memo was released saying that in the next few months the structure and leadership would be reorganized. He will still have a job, but we don't know what or where it will be. I'm grateful that at least he will have a job, and I know we'll be able to figure out whatever we need to. I'm grateful for the friends and family who are also praying about it.

emoticon emoticon Grateful to my friends who have sponsored my charity run. I'm at $430 and hoping to get to $500 by Sunday. My charity is the Toronto Vegetarian Association...they do a lot of cool things to inspire people to be healthy and compassionate eaters and consumers (and they're never pushy or arrogant like some veg groups). I've learned so much from the TVA and gotten so much inspiration from the speakers at the festival it organizes so I'm excited to help them out with some fundraising.

I'm grateful for a nice weekend in the country with my parents and extended family. We did a charity 5k walk yesterday and I think it got my Mom interested in getting fit and walking more to beat her 5k time next year!

Happy anniversary Aphrodidte! Glad you kidney stones passed, they sound very painful!

OOOOOOOHHHHHH Carla that sounds FANTASTIC! YUMMMM! I'll bet you do feel good after all that good food. I have a green smoothie almost every day and I always feel so good and so full after those!

Today I am grateful that I feel better and that I can take care of my daughter who is home from school and not feeling well today. Poor thing has a sore throat and is very tired. No fever, just worn out and not feeling well. Grateful I can give her warm drinks, warm hugs and lots of love today!

mmm chocolate! I have a little bit of raw dark chocolate almost every day too! Usually in the afternoon at work when I'm starting to feel restless.

emoticon

I went to an excellent raw food demo last night. We made almond milk then used it to make smoothies, and also chia seed pudding. Then I got to use a spiralizer to make noodles out of a zuchinni, to eat with the pesto we made. The whole thing was raw and vegan. My body feels great today after all that clean power food!

Kristy...this is a hard time...so know that I am sending prayers your way. Sounds like you are doing a great job staying positive...keep that up!

I am grateful today for a wonderful small group of women that I meet with weekly for Bible study in my home. We can share everything with each other and it feels so good to be able to do that. We all have our struggles, but we are all strengthened by sharing our struggles and our triumphs.

Thank you Melissa,

I'm so sorry you are going through this right now. I remember what it was like when I was going through it too...now with each new symptom that pops up I wonder if I'm developing another condition. Blech...always something!
BUT...I am so glad you found this team! It is a blessing, so keep reaching out and keep posting. You will get through this period of uncertainty and fear. Stay focused on what you CAN do, and remember that whatever diagnoses you get you are still very much in control of your body and the decisions you make about it. Doctors may tell you what they think you should do, but trust your voice about what you really need to do.
There are a lot of tools on SP and lots of great teams, so keep looking for support!

Grateful I was able to help out at my kids' school yesterday & grateful for so many teacher and staff there that really do care about doing their best.

Also grateful for the opportunity to call the parents of one of my piano students to let them know just how gifted a musician he really is. It is rare to meet a true prodigy, but I have a high school student who blew me away this week when I asked him to improv on a simple tune. He is going to go very far as a musician and I am blessed to be able to work with him for a short time, and to support his parents as they look toward his bright future!

Strawberries for my morning snack

Co-worker was very happy about a small gift I gave her

Fun chat with a co-worker in the kitchenette

Lingering exercise pain that reminds me healthy enough to exercise

Helpful email sent to me today by my Swedish tutor, it's a Swedish radio doc about librarians (I'm a librarian) and she typed out some difficult new words in the doc for me to listen for

Sorry you have been sick, praying you feel better quickly! I am grateful that I am not so fatigued, and I got to do 10 minutes of yard work. Haven't been able to do anything since my surgery, so I'm happy with 10 minutes-it means I'm getting stronger! emoticon

So grateful for Flylady routines!
I'm back to getting things done and organized. Last week the missions were about getting the kitchen de-cluttered, clean and organized. It worked so well that when I was pulling out the last of the leftovers last night for dinner, my DH noticed that the refrigerator shelves could use a bit of cleaning and he wiped them down for me...I didn't even have to ask!
Now my pantry is cleaned out and organized, the counters are de-cluttered and clean, the under-sink cabinets are clean and organized and the appliances are clean!
This week it's on to the bathrooms!
