Aly, thinking of you. Hoping all went well at appointment.

Grateful to join Anaya in looking forward to being barefoot (or any foot) on the beach. For me it will be about two months from now though.
Grateful that a long time ago (over 2 decades) when I first started running (and any fitness) some jerk craned his hairy arm out of his car and yelled “run faster, fat a##!” It was so unkind and unnecessary but it certainly motivated me, primarily to not want to be the kind of person who goes out of their way to be hateful but of course also to keep running.
Grateful to have been able to help a former neighbor care for her dog and pay vet bills until the very last one, which came yesterday when he was put to sleep. Grateful for all the memories I had in the old neighborhood taking him for walks (long story but he was kept in a small pen and I would walk him whenever I could...after she got knee surgery she also began walking him as much as possible thank goodness) and the sheer delight he would express when he would see me coming. My heart breaks a little I couldn’t do more but I’m glad for what I could do. I’m glad she came to trust me and that I could call her and tell her how much I cared about her and was checking on her.
Grateful for a compassionate vet.
Grateful the kids are doing bike to school day. Grateful for events like that promoting wellness and community. Grateful to my husband for leading the ride.
Grateful to keep inching toward summer.
Grateful for all the compassion and kindness in this group.
Grateful to have another day to surrender, to be of service, to check my ego, to direct energy to improving the lives and well-being of others.

I'm in a bit of a funk at the minute, my daughter has just phoned and told me that there was an incident of bullying with my eldest g.son yesterday. He has just turned 12 and I think I've mentioned previously that he's on the Asbergers' spectrum but quite low down on the scale, he goes to a mainstream school. He is very clever academically but has poor co-ordination so is not very good at sports and p.e etc. He's very gentle and caring boy and is just gorgeous. Yesterday at lunch time he was desperate to go the toilet, he went to the little boys room and a bigger lad blocked him, dancing in front of him and goading him and just wouldn't let him pass, which resulted in my grandson wetting himself. I could cry. My daughter has emailed his head of year and has phoned the school and will not let this matter drop till its sorted. Honestly, if people only knew the battle we had to get him to ever use the toilet in the first place, he had a fear of toilets until he was about 7.
Sorry but I needed to get that off my chest.

Grateful to be sober today.
Grateful not to even want to drink alcohol even though I'm upset.
Grateful to be able to vent my frustrations on S.R.
Grateful to listen to my daughter and stay calm.
Grateful for a another sunshiny day, 3 in a row now.
Grateful to buy a few more plants for the garden.
Grateful for coffee.
Grateful for two good knees ( lol) instead of one good one and one bad one.
Grateful for the kindness of Numblady being there for her former neighbour and her dog especially. xx
Grateful for you all today. xx

Daisy, I'm so, so sorry for that horrible incident. You and your grandson are in my prayers. May God protect your angel. ♥
Grateful I think this is the last day it is supposed to rain this week.
Grateful that although I did not like the surgeon I saw yesterday one bit, he is referring me to another spine surgeon (hopefully the shot, it has to be approved) at another hospital. I am optimistic he will be a better doctor although it could be 3 to 6 months painful wait.
Grateful, that I've accepted things don't move in my time, that's for sure!!
Grateful for all of you and your grats and your well wishes.
Love you all! ♥♥♥

FBL - Nice tribute avie. Loved him too.
Aly - I'm glad you won't be stuck with the dr. you didn't like. Very sorry about the wait though.
Numblady - How kind of you to be there for your neighbor & her dog. So much sadness when they leave us.
Daisy - That is infuriating, & I'm so sorry he had to deal with that disgusting behavior.
Grateful we can talk about things that upset us.
Grateful for the beautiful sun finally making an appearance.
Grateful that it's time to put away coats, boots & gloves.

FBL, I loved Tim Conway o the Carol Burnett show
Numblady, I can relate to the running comments. I run distance but have always been slow. People have shouted “pick up your feet” “move your a..s” In one of the marathons I ran, I was one of the last to finish and the photographer had already gone home. Lol. I am also sorry about the dog
Daisy, I am absolutely FUMING at that situation right now and wish I could reach through my iPad to be there with you, give your g.son a big hug and go find the bully and knock him out myself! I’m sure your daughter is doing everything to address this with the school. I hope they have a counselor your g.son can talk to.

Grateful for all of you and our support for each other. It means so much!

Grateful to all who unselfishly give of themselves, who make a difference in the lives of pets and people, one day at a time.
Grateful to focus on faith, hope and love.
Grateful to "really be listening" and ingesting info the second time around on the mindfulness audiobook I'm "reading."
Prayers for all the grat pack (as RZ calls us) - for peace, healing, strength, and hope. Don't give up hope that tomorrow will be a better day
