1 - Good health (a co-worker was just diagnosed with cancer - chemo starts next week - definitely puts the blessings of good health in the forefront)

2 - My family (same reason as above)

3 - My abilities (I totally knocked it out of the park this last week painting and decorating my son's room. We've been in the house nearly three years - it was about time)

Grateful for new lesson learning. Strange and assaulting to the ego
This last week I am upsetting people right left and center without in the least meaning to -
I am being shown what is going on and it seems to be true because of the response I am getting when I see things from their point of view and respond in that way. It is not a question of right and wrong at all. It is so difficult to see the their point of view when they have misunderstood and become upset.
Grateful for these new insights and grateful that I have the time to do this. The responses I am getting are so positive. It is so easy to hurt others without in the least intending to do so. Especially those who are already damaged from a lifetime of emotional pain.
Grateful that my ideas of "kindness" are being moderated by The Moderator of all. emoticon

Grateful beyond measure for a caregiver who shares a similar sense of humour to my own.

at this moment i'm grateful for a wonderful lunch and full belly, organizing that I've been wanting to do and finally did, and the cool air and peacefulness around me that beckons a little reading and a short nap.

I like this thread. emoticon

Today, I am thankful for God, which I could not do life without, and without, would not have life.
I am thankful for the motivation that prompts me to continue to exercise.
I am thankful for my chatty daughter who entertains me with her funny and bright self.
And lastly, for today, I am thankful for the wine glasses my mother-in-law bought me that allow me to track my calories.

At this moment, I'm grateful for the birds giving me a private concert, the cool breeze coming through my window and the balls of marshmallows against the blue skies.

Today, I am thankful for lazy mornings with coffee and a book in bed. Later, I will be thankful that my inner Lazy allowed me to stay sparky and go to Zumba, and Diligence prompted me to track my calories.

Thanks, Wispy. Today, I am thankful that I was able to go to a Body Combat class and that I have the motivation to track my calories and say "no" to sweets.
