I am grateful that my 5yo's favorite song and favorite show are both things that I enjoy too! ("All Together Now" by the Beatles and "Phineas and Ferb", respectively...)

Today I am thankful for my newly found strength and perseverance that is helping to make *this* time a reality, and to push me through those times and emotions that make me want to give up and resort to my old ways. I am thankful for finally being ready for a new me! emoticon

Today I am grateful that when I don't feel well I have the luxury to take care of myself because my main responsibility is to myself these days. When I am sick or the fibromyalgia is bad or I am mentally worn out, I know I can do the things that will help me to take care of myself and not feel guilty about it anymore like I used to. Thank God for that blessing!

VARMINT! I was just thinking of how beautiful the moon is and how it's one of my favourite things in the entire world!

Today I'm thankful for great choral music and tylenol! I haven't flexed my brain muscles in a long time and that job application was asking me some tough questions. OUCH!

I am grateful for the gorgeous moon last night that lit my first run in a long time... and Gore-Tex to keep the wind out on a chilly night!

I am grateful that my family ate the dinner I made with no complaints even though the pancakes came out funny.

Today I am thankful for an improptu playdate that led to a great nap for my 3 year old.

Today I'm thankful for health insurance so I can go to the doctor and check out a few concerns of mine that I haven't been able to in the months I didn't have health insurance.

I'm thankful for my 4 kitties :) They keep me company when I'm home alone and at night when I'm the only one awake.

I am grateful that the flooding wasn't too bad today - after 2006, I am always nervous when the water gets high.

That year, it took me more than an hour to get to my daughter's daycare to pick her up, and my husband got stuck on the other side of the river (without his cellphone) and took more than 3 hours to get home - I was pretty scared! I feel ridiculous for being so scared of it too, since we live on a hill & didn't have the horrible property damage that so many people suffered, but being separated from my family members & unable to reach them really brought home how important they are to me! So I am also grateful to have them!

Today I'm thankful for the life lessons I've had to learn in the past few months. Although it's been grueling at times, I think that it's made me a better person today and I have a new and improved attitude to show for it!

I am grateful for waking up today and being alive! Sounds simple but it is the greatest gift of the day!

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

I am really grateful for good friendships. I have some really wonderful friends. I love them very much. And I am meeting some really great people here on this site. I am feeling so much better today. My cold, virus, bug is going away. And it is over 50 out! My joints are loving it! And I even have the windows cracked for fresh air! Woohoo! You just never know what blessings come your way today!

One of the topics discussed at our Spark Rally yesterday was being grateful/having a positive attitude.

No matter what our belief system is, an eye to appreciating the good things in our lives is always beneficial!

I'm starting a thread where we express Gratitude or Appreciation for something in our lives each day.

For me, today I am thankful for all of my friends and family. I'm also thankful for so many healthy resources!
