Grateful for the new thread!
Grateful for Tuesday and all it will bring.
Grateful for sleeping through last night (yay! clapping hands in delight) without waking at 12 am! That middle of the night wide awake and cannot go back to sleep really, really screws up the next workday.
Grateful for freedom of choice.

Grateful things seem somewhat better with my cat, though depending on which vet I talk to it is more or less positive. It is an expensive whirlwind but the thought of putting him down and how crushed my son in particular would be is too much to bear.
Grateful to hear Fearless looked into pet insurance and it is probably not worth it. I had started to wonder.
Grateful my parents are still in town.
Grateful we got to go up and visit my cat in the vet hospital yesterday. He definitely seemed very glad to see us.
Grateful to have asked for help at work.
Grateful for a day to be helpful and kind.
Grateful for this sweet group and all your positive thoughts, especially right now those directed toward ailing kitty.

Deserto - Glad you enjoyed yourself. Used to live near the sea & miss it dearly. Always happy to see you.
Numb - I hope kitty continues to improve - what a scare, & an expensive one.
Grateful for the beautiful snow falling - but happy I don't have to drive in it.
Grateful to shove down negative feelings & remember how blessed I am.
Grateful MrH is at the gym & I have a little time to myself.
Grateful to know we can always find something to be thankful for, even though complaints seem to take center stage.
Sending love out to all!

Grateful kitty seems to be trending in the right direction. Hev — expensive scare is a good way to put it and I’ll be glad if that’s what it ends up being.
Grateful the scare has put into focus what I take for granted, most of all how special the cat is to my son (and his friends—they kind of jokingly worship him). Every day my cat is here he helps wake my son up when it is time by making biscuits and loving all over him. The thought that that was going to go away suddenly was rough.
Grateful for the visit from family though kind of ready to return to more of our normal.
Grateful to be doing a little yoga in a bit.
Grateful for the new thread and to Dee and all admins.
Grateful I got my van back yesterday after not having it for about 3 weeks!
Grateful to go to dinner with my dad. Grateful he has my mom. HIs memory is not doing so hot. I feel for him as well as her.
Grateful to be making progress on plans and accommodations for our summer trip and on the endless planning around summer camps.
Grateful to be trying to let go the reins some at work.
Grateful for an abundance of leftovers.
Grateful for abundance in general.
Grateful to all of you kind souls for making this special place so special.

Grateful to be here this morning on a lovely day. Early Spring here can be really beautiful. All the green hills and mountains, so beautiful. One day I will get another horse and ride our local Mountain again that is so mystical and beautiful. So grateful that on some days around sunset, the mountain turns a beautiful pinkish shade. My sister lives very close to the base and it's quite close to me too.
Mags
Grateful so much for all of you, as always. Have a wonderful day Grat Packers!♥♥♥
