I watched a flock of Pelicans skimming our shore-line this morning and then a flock of geese. All were moving south I think. Also, watched a fox slink along a stand of shore pines. All of this made me feel thankful despite the heavy fog this morning.

Well I am grateful that spark is putting up these notices about ad removal
because I now know I have the option to leave if it bothers me sufficiently - which it does
I am grateful because I can choose whether to stay here and work through my feelings, or leave
I am very grateful that Spark was free when I needed it so badly
I am grateful that I now see these business practices for what they are

It's been a busy week & I haven't been able to be on SP as much as I usually am.
Wispy, I'm grateful your test were benign also!
Kaligirl, I'm grateful PT is helping your return to a fully functioning body!

And on this quiet Monday afternoon, I am grateful for:

* not being dead, as I so nearly was
* being aware that I'm holding onto that grudge with all my might (after all, I was going to look sooo good & then She took that project away from me & has screwed it all up). Yes everything I ever let go of had claw marks all over it.
* Summer's last hurrah -- 3 days of near triple digit temps.
* the forecast of high 70s come the weekend
* my sponsor, who's so gentle with me
* my niece, who treated me to a manicure & pedicure -- what a treat! I fell so elegant now!
* not giving up on myself for not yet having achieved a transmagorification to a state of grace and faith, but continuing to work towards that goal
* for my friends and family -- riches beyond measure

Grateful for the opportunity to have been in the woods yesterday in a secluded spot to pray

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Kali Girl, it's you & me and emoticon all the way! (minus the doughnuts of course!)

On this lovely Sunday evening, I am blessed & grateful for:

* it's 97 but it doesn't feel like it
* I have the $ to replace the clothesline that the lunkhead who mowed the back yard mowed in two
* the bills are paid for another month
* a job taking care of my friend's cat, which enables me to have enough money to pay all the bills
* I finally got the door to my friend's house unlocked today. My lock unlocks to the left -- I thought they all did. Who knew? emoticon
* a nice get together with my son & grandkids this morning.
* having learned to let go of my expectations for that relationship & not compwre him to other sons
* clean sheets
* books & libraries & DVDs & music
* fall being only 3 days away!
* I am grateful for this topic & for my daily gratitude list. It hasn't drastically changed my attitude yet but I have faith that it will
* ripe cantaloupe with cottage cheese -- what a treat!

Today I am grateful for the ability to feel gratitude.

I am grateful for a friend who shared some wisdom which made sense to me today

Good morning everybody. On this sweet Saturday morning, I am grateful for:

* learning to make a daily gratitude list, even when I'm not feeling grateful (thank you Wispy!)
* having cleared some of the clutter off my desk
* coffee, which tastes so good & banishes headaches
* libraries! Now that they're on line & send out reminders when books are due, I can use them in spite of my ADD
* my imagination
* knowing I have enough in spite of the feelings that road blocks & surprises bring up
* I haven't given up yet
* SP fri8ends & friends of all kinds

Grateful today for all the lovely, kind, caring and helpful people in the world,
especially grateful for those I met today. It has been like one of those days in old musicals where everyone walks down the road smiling, and people are friendly and so anxious to be helpful.
I am grateful for sunshine
I am grateful for a wonderful new caregiver who actually likes hugging........
I am grateful for the librarian who has gone right out of her way to send me a full colour photocopy of all the books by an author i am currently reading. They are all stapled, just amazing that she took the time to do that.

Just reminded me of that song Its a wonderful world. Louis Armstrong. emoticon

* to have found the tools to stop being "a tornado roaring my way through the lives of others." & for usually remembering to use them
* for the new tube in my ear, which lets me hear normally again
* for knowing that I have to pray & say an affirmation for the woman who's driving me crazy & therefore is a gift in my life
* for my strong immune system

I am grateful for the first crisp day of autumn. The sky is still bright but there is a nip in the air and I love the colours and feel of autumn.

I am feeling grateful again for the oddest sequence of events which is causing me to look at new situations but with an old flavour. It is like going around on a spiral. I hit similar situations that I don't at first recognise and then come to see the common thread.
I am grateful for something that comes to me from the Bible I believe. "Let my yes be yes and my No be No.
I am grateful for crispy bacon and eggs for breakfast.
I am grateful for getting a walk in early and the doves cooing from next door.

Yes, we were on that other team together -- I'm sorry to see it's no longer active, I enjoyed it.

On this summer-into-fall Thursday, I am grateful for:

* having learned that I'm ADD. It was quite a shock at my age, but at least now I understand so many of my character defects, & my strengths too
* wonderful generous neighbors & no longer having to worry that my lovely, 30 yo silver maple tree will be cut down because I can't afford to get the work done myself.
* Delta breezes, & temps >90
* friends
* my house
* my car

Grateful for the life I am able to enjoy.

Hi de hi everyone.

I hope you are in less pain now Kali.

Thanks for the good wishes with the new caregiver. I do remember those days Kate when we were in another team together. emoticon Your were on the giving side as a recall.

Today I am grateful for all of you and Spark. It is good to have the feeling of belonging and being cared about.
Grateful for weeding this morning and the mild weather.
Grateful for roast pork for lunch with crackling. This is the food that makes me love low carb eating on my low carb days. (I do a food cycling plan)
Grateful for tears and hugs and happy memories
Grateful for the wonders of The One, discovering more and more that the buried pain has to come out before the joy of freedom can flow.

Good luck Wispy with the new caregiver. Having been on both sides of that fence, I know when it's good it's very good and when it's bad -- it's awful!

On this lovely Wednesday morning, I am grateful:

* for wonderful neighbors who are putting in a new fence and being generous enough to not have my tree removed but the fence will go around it. They would be well within their rights to demand that it be removed, but they seem to love the tree as much as I do. A 25+ yo tree would be hard to replace and both our backyards would be much hotter in summer without it!

* for another run-in with the current nemesis in my life, which allows me the opportunity to look at my part in the fray and not like what I see.

* for my memory of an old sponsor, reminding me to pray for her to receive everything I want in my own life

* for libraries -- the book I requested is here & I've been waiting for it for a long time!

* for my health
* for good friends
* for my family

- heading out @ lunch for foam to make my 'boot' work better

Grateful for sunshine today, for trees and flowers and the energy to work outside and plant up pottings.

Grateful for the time that Kim has spent with me over the last two years.
Grateful for the new caregiver who will hopefully be starting tomorrow.
Grateful for learning more about having good boundaries and a little about keeping things professional.

It is often difficult to keep the relationship professional if you grow to like each other.
However with lady being so very quiet I am thinking it may prove to be more simple.

I am grateful to have a government provided home care person.

Grateful for all the situations in my life that are causing me emotional pain.
Grateful for continuing to thank God, although I have got to a place today where I am at a loss to know what to do for the best.
Grateful that I have kept thanking for God everything till this morning when another ongoing issue that seems unsolvable (if that is a word)
Grateful that an old Bible story came to mind about someone called JOB. I seemed to recall that he had been doing something wrong - but had no idea what it was.
So I looked it up and it the most amazing discovery.
Grateful to have read the story.
It is interesting because the more I have been thanking God for everything and asking what it is I need to learn, the more consistent have become the seemingly unsolvable issues.
I had reached the point this morning when I an angry that it is just going on and on and although I am saying "Thank you God for everything - this morning was the last straw".

I am so grateful for the situation this morning, because it seems to have been the straw that broke the camels back. I am powerless. Surrender does not come easily to me.

Grateful to feel the joy of acceptance -- at least for right now.

Today, so grateful to find a couple who amazing people who were able to help in a difficult situation. Well they found me actually. I so needed help in this area.
I am grateful that a JP is going to come here. It was an offer, I would never have thought of asking. I have been trying for some weeks to find a place I could get to when Kim was here.
I am grateful for the unexpected kindnesses that turn up out of the blue
I am grateful for a wild and cheeky wind today. i have all the doors wide open so it is gustying through the house. i really enjoy that, till I get frozen. :)
Love the rustling of the leaves and the wind in the branches. Always found the wind exhilarating. Used to so enjoy walking along the beach on a stormy day. Felt like dancing and singing at the top of lungs.

Hi there - so good to hear the things you are thankful for

Today I am thankful for the health assessor coming (this is a thank you that I dont feel) but I know it is here so I can learn another lesson. :)
I am thankfful for actually getting on the scales this morning -
for discovering it was not as good as I hoped and the good news that I did not go and eat to console myself nor was I distressed.
I am grateful for this sane and God given gift. I was a scales addict.
I am grateful for the team I joined here in Spark which showed me how to deal with them.
I am grateful for dear friends and family and another mild winter day with the bifolds open.
I am grateful for the sparrows and the fantails and the littler white eyes that enjoy the trees as this time of the year. Beginning to nest build Im thinking.

Today, I am thankful for the sounds of laughter coming from my daughter's room as she plays with a friend. I am grateful for the motivation to go to a class at the gym today. I am grateful for hot tea. I am grateful for warm baths, even on hot days. I am grateful that school is starting tomorrow so that my routine is back in place. I am thankful that I am continuing to lose weight. I am thankful for cute shoes.

...and I am grateful for those that post on this team.

Hi there everyone so good to hear all these gratitudes

Today I am grateful to have started clearing out the garage.
Grateful that I actually enjoyed the work and discovering all the old toys from the grandkids younger years. The youngest is now 20. We had so much fun back then with all the Mcdonalds toys. There are dozens and dozens of them. We played circuses and used them in all sorts of board games that I made up. We all loved board games. The great great grandkids also used the play with them and took several back down to their part of the world.
Grateful for so many happy memories.
Grateful for roast pork and home made mayo.
Grateful for Agatha Christie and her books. Have just started re-reading back from the 1920's ones that she wrote. Just loving it all.
Grateful for family and friends and life and food and blue skies and sunshine today.
