I am thankful for my little dog Toby... he makes my heart happy. Plus having a little buddy to entertain me has helped me in my weight loss! Little Puppies can be a whole lot of work!

Today, I am grateful for the leaves falling from the trees. In our little town, we're supposed to keep our sidewalks and front porch steps clear of "weather debris", such as falling leaves or snow, and the total yellow sidewalk turned back into a brown sidewalk after a good 40 minutes of sweeping, raking, and hauling!

Today I'm grateful for my older sister. She's single, so she's pretty much willing at any point to watch our son (and actually sends us out on dates so she can watch him). He's 2 1/2 and we have yet to pay for a baby-sitter.

Today, I am grateful for a cold front. It's been in the high 80s again these last few days, which really doesn't feel like November. Today it is back to 50s, and I'm really grateful for that.

Today I am grateful that I was able to still do my 5K workout on the track. I am happy the weather warmed up some so I can still exercise outside. Although it was dark out the track was well light and the crowds of runner made me feel comfortable walking/running the track so late.

Today I'm thankful for my younger sister. She works at the daycare that my son goes to so she brings him home with her and then watches him so that I can get a workout in. She also watches him every other Tuesday night so that I could join a service organization. I don't know where I would be without her!

Today, I am grateful for my little girl. She is as stubborn and independent as her mom, and this morning, she absolutely would not let me take her to her pre-school by bike. She refused. She wanted me to take her in the stroller. So instead of a rough fifteen minute uphill ride by bike and then a smooth five minute cool-off ride down, I walked, which put me at a half hour of constant exercise. This also means that when I go to pick her up this afternoon, I'll have ANOTHER half hour of constant exercise, putting me at a full hour!

Today I am grateful that no one was hurt on my way to work

There was a person threatening to jump off the overpass I need to pass to get to work. I hear the police were able to get them down without incident.
I was a few hours late to work while waiting for the street to be cleared.

This might sound corny... but today I am grateful for my healthy body.

My neighbor of 14 years, became violently ill this weekend. Everyone thought it was the flu and would run it's course. At 3am Sunday morning, my mother had to rush him to the ER. He was code blue when they arrived and it took 20 to revive him. He is now in the ICU on a ventilator. He lived a life full of drugs and alcohol, and it has taken it's told. He's my age(36)... and I can't help thinking "but for the grace of God, go I."

Today I am grateful for the joy that my children bring into my self. I share custody of them and they are only with me every other week. The day they come home to me is always a happy day for me and I can't wait to see them and get the big smiles and hugs. They love me unconditionally - no matter what I weigh or how clean my house is (the two things they consistently get me down).

Today I'm grateful for my family...I had such a wonderful day yesterday in the corn maze with my boys and my parents. I always feel such a sense of completeness when we're all together.

When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.--Erasmus

One expects so much from a chicken, and is so dreadfully disillusioned.--Sherwood Anderson

Quite simply, focusing on gratitude, thankfulness, and positivity is good for you physically and emotionally. With that in mind, please visit our Inspiration & Motivation forum daily during the month of November to contribute to our "Today I am grateful for..." sticky thread.

According to The Power of Gratitude on the Oprah website – link can be found here: www.oprah.com/spirit/The-Powe

- the benefits of daily gratitude are plentiful.

Copied from Oprah:

If you want to start attracting positive things into your life, Michael says there is one small thing you should do every day—show your gratitude, appreciation and love for the people and things around you. "On a daily basis, find something you are appreciative of or find something you are grateful for," Michael says. "Start a journal. You might even want to call it your appreciation journal or gratitude journal and go to it [and write] five minutes a day."

By acknowledging what you are grateful for in your journal, Michael says you'll become a deliberate attractor of positive vibrations. "Did you know that appreciation, gratitude and love are the highest forms of vibration?" he asks. "You can only have one vibration at a time, and if you are noticing what you appreciate and noticing what you are grateful for, you can't be noticing what you don't like."

As more of your thoughts and words become positive, you'll start attracting more positive people and circumstances, Michael says. "Decide today that you are going to reduce negativity in your life by getting rid of the 'don'ts,' 'nots' and 'no's'—the negative people, the negative thoughts," he says. "Get in the habit of appreciating things."
