Vallee, I'm sending lots of healing energy to Julie!


Today I am grateful for ...


~ Patricia & Vallee listing their gratitude for the last few days when I didn't list any

~ my raincoat(which helps keep me warm even when it's Not raining!)

~ my coat w/ all its pockets (that my friend gave me)

~ gloves that keep my hands warm

~ a scarf to keep my head warm

~ coughing less, sudafed & mucas reducer

~ naps that help restore my energy

~ tv & cable, & my eyes & ears which enable me to enjoy them

~ coupons that enable me to save $

~ Subway, & my feet which carried me there

~ the Oprah magazines I am re-reading before passing them on

(If the above sounds familiar, that's because I posted it on 1/15, but they all still apply!)


Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter
everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe
that change forever how we experience life and the world.

Graca, so much for being here & listing what you are grateful for today!  I hope to see more of your comments!   


Darla, it's great to see you on this thread! 


Today I am grateful for ...


~ 40 min of overtime at work

~ the Tom Cruise movie I am watching called "The Knight & the Lady" (very action-packed)

~ the sun was shining today, so it was warmer even though the wind was blowing

~ the landlord told my roommate she has until 12pm tomorrow when he will move all of her things onto the lawn (which she agreed to), & she is staying at a hotel tonight, which makes it alot less tense here in the apt.

~ love & laughter


My only reason for not experiencing bliss at this very moment
is thinking about what I don't have.

Don't ever feel guilty that you have enought or more than enough to eat Pat - it is not your fault that some don't - we are blessed to have food and that is why I am grateful for it and try and eat well and always give thanks for it - I remember a time I was student teaching and only had an apple to eat for my lunches - with a PT job only, a child, divorced and student teaching where you don't get paid - couldn't afford any more -

I am grateful that you have plenty of food.

Pat, I'm with Val, don't feel guilty for having enough or more than enough to eat.


I'm thankful for

*my husband {yes, I'm repeating myself but Ray's the biggest part of my life}

*my children

*my animal companions {5 cats and a bearded dragon}

*my friends {yes, again I'm repeating myself but I'm really grateful for all my friends}

Darla, at least you're only repeating yourself, not just copying & pasting a previous post like I did! 


Vallee, I am grateful that you made it thru that challenging time & are not in it anymore!


Patricia, I agree w/ Vallee - please don't feel guilty about having enough to eat!  You don't have that challenge, but you have other challenges.  I believe that it all balances out in the end, because We R ONE. 


Today I am grateful for ...


~ talking to Vallee on the phone 

~ the roommate being out of the apt.(though she still has alot of stuff out on the lawn)

~ the nice day & the 2 mile walk to & from the following:

~ Pizza Casbah 2-for-1 slices

~ the computer at Mugs coffee shop

- feeling better mentally but not physically - (wish they could match up sometimes!)

~ Patricia feeling better mentally & getting 5 loads of laundry done!

~ that even tho I dropped my bus pass 3 times today (because I was wearing gloves), I realized I had dropped it & found it on the ground.  From now on, I'll pull my glove off before I take it out.

~ I got the last 2 pairs of insulated gloves at the $1 store

~ the sun coming out this afternoon & it being 51 degrees today

~ my computer


Forgiving others is a gift to yourself,
given not because the other deserves pardon,
but because you deserve the serenity and joy
that comes from releasing resentment and anger,
and from embracing universal forgiveness.
