Numb - I love Bradley too. What movie was it?
Grateful to be getting closer to finding MrH's sister - due to finding his (birth) father's obit.
Grateful for a glorious summer day - almost forgot we're in these weird virus times.
Grateful I didn't kill any of the flowers I planted (in pots) this year. Unusual.
Grateful it's not a Sunday from the past - in which I'd be dreading Mon. morning due to binging all weekend.
Grateful for all the lovely people here. :

Grateful that I'm slowly working out of an uncomfortable, kind of anxious place this morning. Grateful that I slept well last night.
Grateful that this headache I woke up with isn't from imbibing!
Grateful to see Rusty. Love and prayers.
Grateful I don't think I have any appointments next week, but a lot of phone calls to make.

Mags hope you are feeling better and continue to do so.
Hev, it was ďHeís Just Not That Into YouĒ. Pretty silly and not big on depth or complex plot/character development. But just what the doctor ordered for someone seeking entertainment that is almost purely mindless.

Grateful for Opiís making a new part.
Grateful for how fast we clip through parts because itís a reflection of all the positive thoughts expressed here.
Grateful for police officers. I donít want to be political but suffice to say I by no means think policing in our country is perfect. But there is also much I am grateful for. I was in Target Friday evening and there was someone screaming in the store, kind of like having an active psychotic episode and being totally enraged. I couldnít see him for a long time but eventually he got kind of herded up to the front by a group of male employees. I think they could have been security because there shirts were black not red. I was moved by them too trying to protect the customers but also not just jump the guy or anything. He looked like he was homeless and I think was weeping and carrying on. he looked very small and fragile, like a meth addict. He was not wearing a mask. He went into the bathroom at the front and as I was leaving several law enforcement officers were going in. Just thinking about them, pulling up their masks, not knowing what they would really encounter, just made me grateful people are willing to be spit on and screamed at and fought or even killed in the line of duty to keep others safe. Grateful for those who are upstanding and compassionate in addition to protective.
Grateful the weekend was actually fairly relaxing.
Grateful for coffee.
Grateful for another day to try and be kind and of service.
Grateful for all of you.

Grateful for coffee!
Grateful that the loud and terrifying fire alarm that went off at 2:30 a.m. was a false alarm.
Grateful that my husband always knows what to do in emergencies.
Grateful that I was able to finally get back to sleep afterwards.
Grateful for telework, and all the flexibility it brings.
Grateful for a fairly productive day yesterday.
Grateful for the weight loss website I've started using.
Grateful to rediscover the sitcom "King of Queens," it's so awesome.
Grateful to be sober, and for everyone on SR.

Cour - That made me lol. I get you!
Numb - Yes, a purely mindless diversion would be good right about now.
Thanks for your thoughtful comments on the Target incident - you're so right.
Grateful for another sunny summer day.
Grateful to be sober so I don't miss a thing.
Grateful to realize I can always change my mind about things, no matter how old I get.
We will be frying here today in the upper 90'sF - so I'm heading out to the store.
Love to all.

Grateful for the new thread.

Grateful to have gone camping again this weekend with friends and to have floated a little river in our inflatable kayaks, even if there wasn't quite enough water and we had to drag the boats several times when we bottomed out. I may have been slightly weighed down by a certain 105 pound mastiff sharing the small craft with me.

Grateful for a certain 105 pound mastiff.

Grateful to have slept so soundly last night.

Grateful for Rusty's 15 years on SR! What an inspiration you are to me and many others. xxoo
Grateful to be sober.
Grateful for A/C, another hot one today!
Grateful for Luke, laying in his bed next to me. I think we'll have to keep our walk shorter today because of the heat. He is really uncomfortable in the heat.
Feel better Mags. Sending prayers.
Grateful for all the great people in the Grat Pack.
Love and peace to each of you!

Grateful for RZ’s 15 years here on SR. Inspiring!
Grateful for a good conversation with a work colleague yesterday. She mentioned at the end that she appreciated my daughter’s instagram stories—-including, apparently, eyebrow makeup tutorials. Which. Is extra hilarious because I guess some time after creating said tutorial she actually cut off like half her eyebrow. Not totally sure how it occurred but every time I look at her I am just swelled with such tenderness, trying to take her seriously with her half shorn eyebrow.
Grateful for sober sleep. Feel like I’ve not been sleeping as long but quite hard. Like I’m sucked down into a sleep vortex.
Grateful to be feeling more like myself physically.
Not grateful for having had Covid but at least grateful I can give some encouragement and modest reassurance to a friend who tested positive.
Grateful for this group.
