I am grateful that when i was having a weird and very uncomfortable dream last night (not unusual for me!! ha ha!) I was upset and stressed and turned a corner...

so how is that???

Gratitudes from Poppy:
Today I am grateful that I have a happy healthy toddler!

I am grateful to have had a bountiful meal.

I am grateful for many little things - green grass, leaves on the trees, a few christmas lights put up on peoples houses early, being away from the city and driving around (warm and much easier than the bus or subway), having a nice clean house to spend the holidays in (and it's not my own so it's more relaxing), all the work my aunt put into this holiday, electricity to help us stay warm, cook our food & light our house (I've been thinking about how much we use in terms of how little you can use or how you might waste it) and a warm comforter to snuggle in at night.

Gratitudes from Cindy:

So..I am grateful for my almost completely 'free-of-numbness' legs, my

(mostly) lack of dizziness,

and my increase in energy, when months ago I thought it wasn't possible.

I am grateful for my job, which I still have, when so many of my co- workers have been 'off-shored'. (They call it 'best-shoring').

I am grateful for how my boss has been so accommodating to me the last few months, and appreciate the flexibility I have and the trust they have in me. Plus I like what I do!

And lastly, I am grateful for an ultra-sweet husband, where a few years ago I was convinced these type of relationships didn't exist.

Life is good.

Gratitudes from Barbel:

I am grateful for my eyes so I can see the bright smile of my lover. I am grateful for my ears that can hear the new music of Seal that make my heart sing and be filled with passion. I am grateful for the warmth of my lovers soft body next to me in the early morning hours. I am grateful for the quiet morning with the sun shining into my window as I journal and revel in the joy I feel deep inside myself. I am grateful for having a home in which I feel free to be me and delight in its colorful beauty that I created. I am grateful for cook books that allow me to try out new receipes. I am grateful for my car that takes me to my son's home for the official Thanksgiving celebration. I am grateful to see my son out of jail and happy. I am grateful for the opportunity of meeting new additions to the family at the celebration. I am grateful for holding the brand new baby and delight in his beautiful innocent face. I am grateful for the new puppy that makes my son and his girlfriend smile. I am grateful for time spend in love, laughter and connection. I am grateful for having developed my ability to see the good in all things. I am grateful to be alive.
