Grateful for:

Nice friends who check in on me. It's tough living alone and having my boyfriend and parents live so far away

The 5K race I ran today. I was hoping to do it faster, bit I'm still in are that I can run as much as I can! Cardio is a struggle with my mechanical heat valve

The delicious 'za I had today for Vegan Pizza Day

The refreshing swim I went for today after my run

Grateful for:

A co-worker is going on vacation today for the rest of the month and gave me his transit pass! I normally bike but I'm going to be busy this weekend so it'll be nice to have free access to transit to get around!

2 noisy co-workers are on vacation! I'll get more work done today without that distraction!

I have a 5K race tomorrow! It's the Pride and Remembrance 5K and this year World Pride is here in Toronto, so I expect it'll be extra festive. Plus we just elected a lesbian Premier, and she's a runner! She was running in one of her campaign ads, and she did this race last year.

The World Cup! It's pretty exciting and starting Sunday every game really counts. I'm not a huge fan but I like to watch the World Cup.

It's Friday!

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.

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!)

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"
