I like that last one..., 'Grateful for being honest, just for today'.

Ditto.

Glad you got your epidural Aly and hope you are feeling better
Numblady, nice you got out for fresh air. Planning to do the same.
Grateful we all continue to join here every day. I do miss Rose and Deserto and hope they are well
Grateful to finally check in. Going to take a nap now. Not a good night sleep

Fearless - The new Unemployment Ins. bill seems very helpful.
Orange spice tea - sounds like something I should investigate.
Mags - I'm glad you are heeding that good advice. Hope the time passes quickly.
Numb - Love it that your husband has characters. I'm sure Renaldo was a great help.
Zip - So happy for your good health news.
Aly - Grateful epidural was slipped in. Would've been a long wait until 4/17.
Grateful I went shopping & got what I needed. Wore rubber gloves until leaving the store - tried to keep my distance from people but it's hard. No paper products of any kind, but there was bread.
Grateful for all who contribute a bit of themselves to this thread.
I miss Rose & Deserto's posts too, very much.
Grateful for the arrival of warm weather. We'll never forget Spring of 2020.

Grateful something Hev wrote reminded me of something my son said. We were all talking at dinner and in a kind of deadpan way he probably didn’t even fully intend he goes, ‘they said 2020 was going to be our year.” It was tragicomically perfect.
Grateful RZ got a good report!
Grateful for another bike ride yesterday, this time with both my kids. Even if it was mostly whining and complaining we did get some more fresh air.
Grateful I don’t have to go into the office anymore, though I probably will so no one else on the team needs to just so someone can check the mail in case we get something time sensitive.
Grateful I woke up at 4:30 so I can get a jump start on things including a workout which I really need but also really don’t want to do.
Grateful for restful sleep, broken by a random dream I was eating the kids’ cereal and later one about close-sitting coworkers in times of COVID.
Grateful for this group and everyone in it.

Grateful to be sober and hangover free.
Grateful for Internet access though it's very sporadic, which is a pain in the neck especially now but there is very little chance of getting through to the contact centre and I don't have time to sit for hours listening to recorded messages.
Grateful for all my lovely friends who live in the computer.
Grateful for glorious sunshine, singing birds and to see the trees and shrubs bursting out with green buds.
Grateful that I have meadows just over the road and I can take my gson for long walks without seeing barely a soul.
Grateful for coffee.
Grateful I feel well.
Grateful that although my family live near, whilst I am unable to see them, at least we are in daily contact.
Grateful N.L managed to contact her grandparents.
Grateful I managed to contact my brother in Thailand and though he is stuck there, he is okay.
Grateful for technology and to be able to help my g.son with online lessons.
Grateful China is on the slow road to recovery and prayers that we will all be soon.
Grateful last night to stand at the front door at pm and applaud our wonderful N.H.S along with most of the U.K. Such an emotional and overwhelming moment.
Grateful my daughter and her partner feel well, they both work for the N.H.S and are still working every day, though both are physically and mentally.
exhausted.
Grateful to read all your uplifting posts even though I don't have time to reply to them all, though I wish I could.
Grateful for each and every one of you.

Hev, yes that bill should help. There are several things private insurance carriers are doing as well to help businesses. Grateful also for government and private employer relief efforts.
Numb lady, glad you have been able to get out with your kids. There are other things I wanted to say too and already forgot 😜
Daisy, glad your brother is ok. Also what an amazing moment you described!
Grateful for the rest of tour upbeat and positive posts

Grateful for Zoom. I’ll be zooming a lot today both personally and professionally plus son is doing karate via Zoom 😊. Folks, we should have bought stock in them!
Grateful to be enjoying take out meals from a variety of restaurants, some new, and to also try to help these struggling businesses
Grateful to stay sober during this time. If we were drinking, it would just add to negative thinking and a depressed mood. I remember alcohol lowers serotonin levels
Grateful to watch Bird Box last night. So good!
Grateful for the Library’s access to ebooks and audiobooks
Grateful to stay present in the moment. Grateful to be enjoying extra time with family more than I expected to
Grateful we are all here together

Rusty, huge congrats on 17 awesome years!
So grateful to read your posts every day.
Grateful for my epidural yesterday. One of the side effects is a pretty bad headache for a day or two after. It's starting. Maybe it won't get too badly this time. Grateful I can relax today. Grateful for my mom taking me to my appt at 5:30am yesterday. But, hopefully this one takes and my low back will start to feel better soonish. Sometimes it takes a little while to kick in. ♥ Grateful for the very kind nurses I had. So nice.
Grateful for all your well wishes. Grateful for my wonderful friends on SR and sharing posts. With all of this "isolation" it is so good to know you are here!♥♥♥
Fearless , Daisy love and prayers. Fearless thank you for your positivity and Daisy, I am so happy you found TP!! And I know you have a lot on your plate. Prayers to you, my love.♥♥
Wishing all of you love, peace, and good health. Love and peace to anyone struggling or suffering in any way.

Grateful to be healthy. Ol' Deserto's been social distancing since he was 16, so all of these so-called restrictions feel like freedom to him.

Grateful the girlfriend has been holed up in Deserto's desert den for the past 10 days, along with her dog and our cat to keep Henry company. It's a regular old menagerie around these parts.

Grateful for Hevyn's shoutout. I've missed the grat pack but am back to my regularly scheduled programming

Grateful to have had mistakenly ordered a roll of germicidal wipes from Amazon a few weeks ago and to have donated them to the local hospital.

Grateful spring is still coming like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers.
