I am grateful for a co-worker who has been open and honest with me. (No Gossip - just her trying to help me out).

I am grateful today for the forecast of rain in my area, while getting a break from the freezing cold and snow.
I am grateful that my family members are hanging in and forging ahead; one day at a time.
I am grateful for SR and for this forum - it means the world to me to have the opportunity to participate here.

And we're grateful that you are here, Anaya.

Today I am grateful that even though my husband often doesn't listen to a word I say...he pretends he does, and that after almost 50 years, I can pretend to believe him.

Great news, PJ.

I am grateful today that the snow will end and sunshine will return once more by tomorrow.

I am grateful that my fever has gone way down. So many people are sick at work or in my neighborhood, I was bound to catch something. Thankfully, it wasn't as bad as some of my friends and coworkers.

Grateful for wisdom shared.
Grateful for laughter; indeed, it is the best medicine.

Get well soon, LMN.

Stay home and take care of yourself, LMN!! Colds are nasty.

I am grateful for all the love I feel here on this thread, here at this site and from my family and friends away from here, on Valentine's Day and every day of the year.

I love you all.

Glad you joined us H379.



LMN, that was sweet that she remembered you today.

I am grateful to be almost packed to go away Saturday. I will check in when I can.

I am grateful to be going on vacation tomorrow, I have a 3 week date with nature on Vancouver Island and can't wait. Also my niece and her family will be a big part of our visit. Like a good aunt and uncle, we are staying at a hotel so they can keep their routine with jobs and two children in school. but will visit several times a week and bond with the little ones.

That sounds wonderful Ann. I just know you will have a great visit and those kids are in for special time. But ..... no horses.

I am grateful that I had such a loving mother. I miss her so much.

Wishing safe travel and a wonderful time for Ann.
Nice post, LoveMeNow. Lucky are we, who have had good mamas. I am grateful that I was blessed with such a strong, committed, and dedicated father. Today marks 11 years since he passed on. I do miss him but also know in my heart that he is in a better place.

I am grateful for today, when I stuck to my plan and did absolutely nothing more strenuous than changing channels and making tea. I really needed a long lazy day!

I am grateful for bald eagles...so many bald eagles, and mountains and nature and all things wonderful on God's planet.

And I am grateful for my niece and her family, the 3 and 6 year olds became like a growth on their Auntie Ann and are just precious little specimens of children busting with joy.

Today I am grateful for bears, and cougars and elk...even though they were elusive and I didn't actually see any driving through the mountains today...but I did see prints and the bears must be out of hibernation early because that was definitely a big bear print in the mountain snow.

Today I am grateful for my warm, cozy home. It's been a rainy cold Monday and I am so glad to be home.

I am grateful that I made an appointment to see a therapist and am sticking with it, not making excuses as to why I cannot go.
I am grateful to feel sure that if I end up alone, I will be ok.
