What a fantastic thread! I am thankful that you both have so much to be thankful for

- I am thankful for a safe and happy place to live.
- I am thankful that I have three amazingly supportive friends who have stood by me through my crisis.
- I am thankful for the internet because without it my support system would be so much smaller.
- I am thankful for being free of abuse.
- I am mostly thankful that I get to see my daughter on Sunday!

Beverlyjoy, I have been away on a holiday at Rehoboth Beach. No internet or telephones! Sorry - guess I should have let you folks know.

Today I am grateful for

+ a very relaxing week with no responsibilities

+ very, very fresh seafood

+ a gentle rain when I was away

+ my initial crop of tomatoes with more to come

+ feeling comfy in t-shirt dresses in this humidity

+ my dogs - so happy to see me when I picked them up at the kennel this afternoon

+ making it home and getting the car unpacked before the current storm hit

Hi Ruth.. so glad you could get away and have fun. I suppose it's not always the best thing to announce online you are going away. (even though this is secure/anon... ya just never know.) Just know I was hoping you were having fun and doing fine.

- nice weekend with the family in. I didn't overeat. It's a miracle and a blessing. So grateful for the willingness

- 3 month old granddaughter is so good natured.

- always good to get away... always good to come home

- my sister is feeling some better

- friends, family, YOU ALL, cell, fb, internet, music

- cruise control in the car - so helpful

Today I am grateful for:

* my children are healthy and happy
* health insurance.
* my mother, who is on vacation to go see her sisters across the country
* the many years I had with my father long after his life expectancy was up.
* my husband, who is my rock.
* my garden, which i literally my favorite thing right now.
* the internet.

And mostly, right now, I'm grateful this stomach virus seems to have let go of me!
