Today I am thankful and grateful for:

- the internet in general. I don't know where I'd be today without it. When used respectfully and properly, it's such a valuable and unbelievable resource.

- these little sugar-free "flavor" packets for water. Not the healthiest of things to imbibe, but it's the only way I can get my 72 oz. of water in each day.

I am grateful the physiotherapist came to my home to give me a treatment
that my chemist delivered my medication
for meals on wheels

These services help us to keep our independence during the bad times.

Today I am thankful for:

- my teacher and the generosity and compassion he has shown to me and my "Buddhist brothers and sisters"-- and, of course, I am thankful for them as well! :)

- all of the other teachers I have come across who have helped me along my path

- and, something a bit less serious: Rice Chex, and fortified almond milk/orange juice/greek yogurt, otherwise I don't know how I'd be getting enough B12 and Vitamin D!

- my "furry children" and their good health

- my friend who is letting me borrow some money from him so I can get my car tuned-up this weekend... lol...

- oh, and just everything else... I'm just thankful for the fact that I can be honestly thankful and not have to force it anymore... I used to be quite apathetic and depressed before, but lately I've been turning over a new leaf and am finding joy in just about everything nowadays. emoticon

I'm grateful for the leftovers I'm bringing to people today (grateful for the abundant amount of food that we can share)

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.

Hi! I also have trouble sleeping. One thing that helps me fall asleep is to meditate on the sounds in my environment. I run a ceiling fan and listen to the sound of the fan, the sounds of cars on the road outside, even the sound of my husband snoring.

I'm grateful for the fifty degree weather outside.
I'm grateful for the fireworks I saw tonight.
I'm grateful for positive energy and sunshine and moonlight.

Paolina, thank you so much. You are a dear. I know you have a much more difficult time of it than I do. Don't know how you manage to sleep with pain at all. I get these periods when I am wide awake and full of energy, or wide awake and exhausted. No idea why they come or go, it doesnt seem to be related to anything going on in my real life. I fell asleep yesterday afternoon, woke up for a short while in the evening and then slept till this morning.
I am so grateful to have slept
I am grateful to have got the dailies I do not want to do done first thing
I am grateful that I am just off for a short walk
I am grateful to have the encouragement and understanding of friends
I am grateful for salad with asparagus for lunch

Wispy,
I am so sorry you are having such a bad time and hope it will be easier tonight. I must confess I took a sleeping tablet last night. It took a long time before I slept but then it was very heavily and I've felt drugged all day.

I am so grateful that I can stay at home when I do not feel well.

I've tried several brain-distracting ideas but not this one. I'll try it tonight. Thank you.

Thank you for the kind thoughts. I appreciate your response. emoticon

Today I am thankful for doing the daily tasks I do not want to do
I am even more thankful that I didnt mind doing them at all - dont know if thats a once of, or if I actually am getting into the routine.
I am grateful that I have a Higher Power we I can ask for help to do simple things that I find difficult
I am grateful that my prayers are answered - often from other people
I am grateful for feelings of peace and contentment

Hi Wispy.

what can really help to get to sleep is a very simple exercise. Pick a subject and mentally do an A-Z, say of animals/colours/movies/things you are grateful for. It distracts the brain from TRYING to sleep which is self defeating and the simple task lulls the brain to sleep.

Give it a try, sweet dreams!

Hey Paolina, well so wanted to tell you. I have now had three nights in a row of not sleeping. The first one I posted which was fine. Then a kind of got a few hours the next night and that was also not too bad.
Last night I tossed and turned all night and thought I must tell you that I was too exhausted to enjoy or even think of doing anything I enjoyed. I did think of you and also the pain you mention and I take my hat off to you for coping with all that. I lay awake, wide awake and yet too exhausted to do anything at all and wanted to apologise for my light hearted response to you when you are in pain. I am sorry. Guess my Higher Power decided I needed a little lesson in empathy.

So today I am grateful for learning a new lesson about sleeplessness. :)
I am grateful for the perfume and loveliness of the sweet peas in my room.
I am grateful for Kim, my caregiver who comes today and takes me shopping.
I am grateful for the birds who sing outside my window.
I am grateful for feeling OK, in spite of very little sleep last night.

I am learning to accept but don't like to get up in the night in case I set a pattern. Think I should have done last night as I was in pain and could not settle.

Well I'm retired so no longer have to work. I also live alone so having nothing that has to be done the next day.
Have to say that first because it is the key really. I don't even try to sleep. I just do whatever I enjoy doing. Often the following morning I am still wide awake. By afternoon I sleep, they sometimes wake up in the evening for a few hours and sometimes sleep through until the following morning, today. :)
I used to spend so many hours tossing and turning and trying to sleep and getting frustrated. I think even if I was still working I might give this a go. My sleeping patterns seem to have much more of a mind of their own since I got older. :)

Today I am grateful for warm sunshine
I am grateful for weeding this morning
I am grateful for the first sweet pea flowers perfuming my home
I am grateful for getting my walking in early
I am grateful for doing my neck and back exercises
