Grateful for friends, friends and friends
Life is so good with great people to enjoy it with
Grateful for the hatching butterflies, must be close by
Grateful for all the bees - so late in the season
Grateful that my new caregiver is able to stay - so it seems. What a blessing

Grateful for life again this today

WOW
So full of gratitude today for coming through the last episode and reached the shore
So grateful to understand that it really is like being back at school, but a life learning school
So grateful when getting to this understanding part beyond the pain of not understanding the pain of what is going on
There is an old saying be careful what you pray for because that is what will happen
Gratitude that such a simple prayer Thy Will Be Done, in my case at least, has had consequences I never even imagined. emoticon

Someone who is going through a similar process but further along than me reminded me that it is death of the Ego/self that causes the pain.
Another person spoke of wanting to be awake and aware at their own physical death - no fear, no pain, just the desire to be aware and conscious of what was taking place.
I feel a bit like a can of peas being opened up. The can opener sure does hurt. emoticon

Am working on being grateful for everything - whether or not it is felt
Feeling grateful for a lovely walk round the garden in soft gentle rain this morning
Also for the ginger and cinnamon gluten free bread just eaten for lunch
Grateful for having a lovely little home in which currently there is a chicken and vege casserole simmering away for dinner tonight. How grateful I am for all these things.

I must be making up dramas. Haha.

How strange is that. Today is so far the same. I am grateful
I read somewhere something about the ground being shaken - maybe Kahlil Gibra - so I am grateful it is so
Grateful for hanging on and handing over
As I have no idea how to handle this stuff I have no option but to admit powerlessness once again
And Budha saying that hanging on to the world is what causes all pain. I am grateful for words of wisdom

Hi girls,

Today I am so grateful for this lovely woman who came on Friday and again today.
I can hardly believe my good fortune. I am coming to see whatever they are like, they are all teaching me wonderful and varied lessons. I just need to remember this. emoticon
Today I am so grateful for being blessed with an understanding of why it is so important to do nothing other than accept people exactly as they are. We are not to blame. It is no-ones fault.
I am beyond grateful for realising that this also applies to me.

- DH working on projects and taking some Christmas decorations down
- warm enough for pups to be outside

Wispy, your continued awakenings are so inspiring.

Kali, your progress and patience with your foot are a great example and lesson for me.

Today I'm grateful for:
~a day of sunshine
~time to reflect
~improved health
~my husband, friends, and family
~a new day and a fresh start

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Thanks Kali.

Today I am grateful that it has all been so much more (worse really) than I ever realised.
I am grateful because can now see so very clearly why what I have had to do was so much more necessary than I had imagined.
Today I am grateful that as a result my life has taken another big change, not so much in outward things, but on the inside - it kind of feels like I have been vacuumed out. emoticon
Praying that The One will fill up every little speck of empty space inside with compassion and understanding.
Grateful for a new step in the journey
Grateful that this last eighteen months or so I am seeing things falling into place.

-I am grateful for seeing friends I had not seen in a few years. We had a wonderful visit.
-I am grateful for a break from the excessive rains we have been having in So. Cal. My lawn needs a few days to absorb the water and avoid flooding my patio.
-I am grateful for my mini schnauzer who loves spending time with me and being there if I get down.

Hi there Kate, happy to see you again

Today I am grateful for less humidity. Even the A/C was hard put last night.
Today I am grateful for wind and a little pitter patter of rain in the night
I am grateful for being able to water the garden
Grateful that my balance is beginning to come back
Grateful that my energy is also returning
Grateful to feel this gratefulness, that is always my biggest gratefulness. emoticon

Today I am so grateful for:

A lovely, soft rainy day in these 6 more weeks of winter
Pain pills to combat the pain flare-up in my arthritic knee
A roof over my head, enough food in the pantry, and the wherewithal to pay the utilities
A free smart phone from the state
The firestick my son gave me for Christmas & birthday
The Kindle my daughter gave me for my birthday
My sponsor who gently & patiently urges me toward serentiy

Kate, in Citrus Heights California

Wispy, I hope you find someone equally as kind to replace Kylie.

Kali, so glad your husband is feeling more energetic.

I'm grateful to be able to stay in and enjoy the rain.
I'm grateful for self acceptance and appreciation for who I am.


I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Thankful for at last getting my photos on to the PC

Hi girls

Today I am grateful for Kylie, her last day. She has been such a blessing. Taught me how to used my new phone. And has shown me how to do things on the computer and download things from the phone to it
So grateful that she is the kind of young woman (18) not 19 as it turns out who is kind and thoughtful. She has also offered to continue doing the weeding for me on a Saturday if I would like her to. Cant believe my ears
Grateful for oopsies (those of a low carb plan will know how good they are) I made gingerbread and cinnamon ones today and also crispy cheese crunchies.
So grateful to have found my eating plan as a result of coming into Spark. Not a Spark plan, but as a result of being here. I am here 9 years now and for the first time ever in my life have actually changed my way of eating since I gave up diets for ever. :)
Grateful as always for my cottage and garden

Hi Dorothy, welcome to the thread.

So today I am grateful for the sunshine dappling down through the leaves
I am grateful for my jungle garden and the joy of just walking along the little pathways
I am grateful for all the brilliant colours of the begonias right now and the perfume of the vines
I am grateful for the last of the sweet pea which I grew in a shady place so they would last longer
I am grateful that a friend of mine may join Spark, she is checking it out now

Woo Hoo Kali on weight bearing soon and your exciting meeting. (I hope it was)

Wispy, love the cauliflower puree. I've made those a couple of times and love them but can't sell them to my husband.

Today I'm grateful for:
~my GI doc still reducing my meds and working with me.
~a really good yoga class this morning
~cooler temps and possible rain

Today my gratitude is bubbling over after the calamity (not really) just my computer. emoticon
I was trying to download PDF, sounds simple however it did not agree with my wp Jarte and I could not open any of my files. I went into immediate panic and tried to go back and resolve it. Not to be. The information came up that advanced settings could not be reversed - why I wondered did they not think to say this first. Double panic. My life is virtually on my computer. And the back up files had also been damaged. Who knew that could happen????
Then I turned to my HIgher Power and just asked for help.
So grateful that the person I got on HP spent an hour or so on my machine.... not even his job. They only fix problems on HP, and this wasnt their issue.
He was patient and kind, and only a young man. He fixed the original issue and was able to get all my files back, but he then showed me how to download PDF without affecting anything on my system and he then went over and over how to do it until he was sure I was able to manage. His patience was unbelievable. An absolute gift from God. Not only did I get the problem fixed. I can now download all the files I need to for meetings in PDF. So many people dont have Microsoft these days. Me being one of them.
This is gratitude to over flowing.
Another thing I am very grateful for today is understanding after a very long hard struggle that having "people" in my life is what is important.... not necessarily having "special people". It is the attachment to special people that causes so much pain - at least in my case. Letting go is what I find hard. And somehow the miracle - again has to be God - is the answer.
Grateful for finally admitting I am powerless over a particular aspect of my personality that I have been working on for a long time. Only yesterday realised that as long as I try to change myself, all that happens is my behaviour changes, but the root issues still remain. Powerless and the need for God to work the miracle is what is finally giving me some peace.

Being retired is so lovely - they say it is a second childhood. Amen to that I missed the first. emoticon

Today I am grateful for the sun just peeping in a the top of my bedroom windows
I am grateful that Kylie, new caregiver came and did weeding in the garden. I cant believe it.
Grateful she is happy to do this as a separate job. Gratitude on Gratidue. She did a great job.
Grateful for new lesson learned this morning.
Grateful that each new lesson means less and less stress in my life. Amen to that.
I really felt I HAD to do so many things. HAD to be responsible for everything and everyone.
How wonderful to discover that is not my job. God has it all in hand. WOO HOO.

Grateful for listening to Osho last night on the 7 valleys
Grateful for a new friend who has come into my life. We have much in common
Grateful for beginning to allow the natural flow of people in and out of my life
Grateful for learning to let come what comes and let go what goes - it is a work in progress

Kali, so many wonderful things happening for you at your cherished work place......remotely. So fantastic.

Wispy, I'll check back later to enjoy your gratitude for today :)

Today I am grateful for:
~The wisdom to rest and not be judgemental of my need for it
~Beautiful weather, and still needing layers
~Snow on our local foot hills and mountains
~Resources online for doing yoga at home today instead of going to the studio

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Wispy, thanks and YES we can share him.............he doesn't fly, so it will have to be "in spirit".

Kali, how nice to see the sun and get out!!!! Wonderful.

I'm grateful for:

Current good relationships with my 3 sons.......it hasn't always been so smooth. I'll savor it and stay in the moment.

Clear, cold weather that allows me to wear a coat and a scarf.

Being patient with my health.

Leslie, I am loving your husband. Perhaps we could share him. emoticon

I am grateful that I enjoy living alone so much - who knew that would ever be true - not in my wildest dreams
I am grateful for the 4 major relationships in my life which all taught me different lessons I needed to learn, about myself - and finally why my relationships were the way they were
I am grateful for my new caregiver who was a bit stroppy today. emoticon First time I've seen her 19 year old (still a teen) self come into play
I am grateful for watermelon - so delicious and a wonderful salad sandwich, both for my lunch and in that order
Reminds me of something you said once Kali - think it was you - that it was fun to eat dessert first. If it was you - Yes I agree.
