I am also so very grateful for air conditioning! My thermometer has read 101 for the past two days, and it will be in the 90s all week. I am thankful for the a/c, so I can be comfortable inside and sleep at night. I pray for those without it.

So grateful today that lessons through painful situations still bring so much joy and understanding.
Grateful that it seems that now as I thank God and ask for the lesson that I need to learn from every painful situation, the response comes very quickly.
Grateful to be discovering what I call my dark side is what many other people already know about themselves
Grateful to have the understanding that because my early life impressions were that I was evil - and this was my "only good side" that I was aware of, I must have buried anything was in any way worse than my good (it was my very best good - as a child) way way down somewhere deep inside me. I am now coming to realise it is humanity, just being human I am talking about.
I am so grateful to those people who now have brought Toxic Shame and Anorexia (not to just food) but to life and living into the public realm, where so many of us are able to find health and wholeness.

My DD went with me to COSTCO this morning to show me how to get my car washed and waxed. It looks so pretty now that all that crusty dust is gone. Then we went into the store where I found some wild salmon, beautiful apples and nectarines and veggies. The sun was broiling by the time I arrived home with my treasures.

It was a blessed day.

Today I am grateful that I made it to the gym for TKB. I am grateful that my husband has summers off, so the house is clean. I am grateful that I get to choose how I want to spend my day. I am grateful that I continue to have the motivation to track my calories and say "no" to sweets.

I am grateful to those who post on this thread for posting. I think one of the reasons why SP works is that Sparkers feel a sense of community. When others post, I feel motivated to check in and post, too. emoticon

I am grateful for those that grew the plants
I am grateful for those that picked the leaves
I am grateful for those that cleaned and packed them
I am grateful for those who transported them to my country

brings my mind to think of these simple things I never thought about.

Today I am so full of joy right now - I have spent so much of my life in pain I am wondering still if this can be real. I am so grateful for the gift of joy.
Grateful for Kahlil Gibran who I have read and loved for years. He spoke in one book of the more pain carves into our being, the more joy we can contain. It was a dream... it is becoming real.
Grateful that it is shopping day. Fresh fruit. I love shopping day.
Grateful for the love of my boys. James has just gone overseas again for 6 weeks and he took the time to share with me at the airport just before he left. This is one of the great joys of my life. We were estranged for many years and The One brought us together again about 7 years ago - and his love shines in his eyes.

Today I am grateful that . . .

It is cooler today—high 85.
The sun is shining.
The wildfire is out.
The scale was going in the right direction this morning.
Management does not allow fireworks here ;-D
This is a peaceful neighborhood.
My pantry is full of boxes of six different and delicious teas now to enjoy for months to come.
I am enjoying macadamia nuts and raisins with my morning mug of green tea.
My grandfather’s clock is still keeping good time.
I met a new neighbor the other day—Stephanie—and gave her the name of my migraine homeopathic supplement.
Stephanie gave me her phone number and told me to call her if I needed anything.
I made it from my car to apt door the other day without my cane.
I could give Clarice printout directions to a church for a singing group presentation.
I find uplifting advice reading Joel Osteen’s books.
There are such kind and helpful people in my city.
I am strong, healthy, and fit with energy and stamina.

Thank you, Dear God. Love, Roberta

Today I am grateful for being faced with three learning situations
One I dealt with in the way I would have chosen, the second one I was into my old way of going until I realised I had said too much. A big failing of mine. I talk too much. And the third remains to be seen what will develop
I am grateful for facing each one fair and square
I am grateful that whatever the outcome, I have done the best I could with what I had today
I am grateful for lovely light fluffy ooopsies for lunch
I am grateful for a programme of living that keeps on expanding

Today I am full of laughter - such a wonderful feeling
Somehow the mindfulness message has reached me in a new way
Whatever may or may not come in the next minute, right now joy is all there is
Gratitude for life, feelings of warmth and love and acceptance towards others
Gratitude for this whole journey of mindfulness and meditation
Gratitude for the gift of The One that I keep on going giving thanks when things
seem impossible
Gratitude that just the act of giving thanks whether I "feel" it or not seems to be acceptable.

Grateful for getting my walk in early today
Grateful for doing my exercises early today
Grateful for doing all my other dailies early today
I am grateful because I would much prefer to do what I want rather than what is good for me
