Default ******An Attitude of Gratitude******

No matter what is happening in our lives... good things or not so good things - there are always things for which we can be grateful. Knowing this helps put life in perspective. It feels so good to acknowledge gratitudes. Studies show that doing this makes you feel good -and, also, you'll have a more positive outlook.

Please feel free to join in and share your gratitudes.

- grateful to be home and not having to go somewhere out of town. I've been mostly out of town since the beginning of August.

- glad to be back on line - I must get something to enable me to use the internet when not at home.

- Rachel is home for over a week now and is settling into her routine with her 24/7 aids, physical therapy and realizing it will be a long healing process for her shattered bone. I am so, so grateful she has come this far.

- I finally fell asleep last night... nearly 3:30 am. But - am grateful that it finally happened!

- my precious new grandson and his brother and sister

- good to see DS and family... glad we could help

- knowing that it is what it is - praying for all positive changes

- friends, family, you all, fb, internet, cell

- car that works & money to pay for it to be fixed when necessary

- I don't have to go out of town this week.

- Grateful Billblueyes for checking out this thread & the reminder to restart this thread when it reached 500.. that's so nice. Hi Billbe!

Hi Beverly Joy and Cheryl. So good to "see" two of my favorite 3FC ladies!

I'm grateful for a wonderful husband who doesn't mind pitching in with meals and cleaning up the kitchen. He made a wonderful crockpot full of chili last evenng that I enjoyed for today's lunch and he made a grilled steak kabob dinner. It's so much easier to stay on-plan with his help.

I'm also grateful for finding an accountability partner here on 3FC and for the folks who post here daily.

- knowing when to sit still. My back has been hurting a lot since coming home on Sunday. I took yesterday to take my muscle relaxers and nsaids. I know that when I take the time to be still... I will feel better. No bending, lifting, twisting

- willingness to get on the scale

- Leighanne will come on Friday to help in the garden. A second huge garden has been dug up and grass planted. The grass is coming in well

- friends, family, you all, fb, internet, cell

- little Adam came by last night to show us his runner up medal for his championship soft ball game - he's seven. Grateful he'd think of us to share the outcome

- furnace/air conditioning

- my laptop

+ grateful that this thread is still here - after a rough few weeks, I need to re-focus

+ friends who have been so supportive over the past weeks of cracked rib agony

+ Toni who just does things instead of asking "What can I do?"

+ being able to "just call a man" for big jobs like tree removal without worrying too much about $$$

+ the busy season at the Mill and Town Hall is now over

+ gold and blue October days - no killing frost yet so I still have flowers
