- I'm grateful for my daughter's wonderful supportive teachers.
- And for having more than enough so that we can share with others at Christmas and all through the rest of the year. No matter how much I may complain about running out of money.
- For our ethnically diverse neighborhood. For our lovely Chinese, Vietnamese, Polish, Italian, Lebanese, Indian, Middle Eastern, Ukrainian .... friends/neighbours who share their cultures and their food with us.

I'm grateful for another year of good health for the kids, John and myself.

I am grateful that I found love.

I am grateful for that feeling I get in the pit of my stomach when I see someone I love. How my heart flutters and pulse races.
I am thankful for music and the arts, it allows me to express myself.
I am thankful for my friends who accept me for who I am and do not judge me because of it.

I am grateful for my DH. He is a diamond in the rough and I'm glad I found him

I'm grateful to my mom for instilling in me faith in God. Whether I've chosen the right God is irrelevant. It's just really comforting to have something to believe in. Something that I can't "see".

I'm grateful that my printer is working (knock on wood), because I've got to make funky gift tags today.

I am grateful for my circle of friends who not only offer to help but DO stuff! A Church pal just came around and picked up our dump garbage - no phone call - just showed up early to save us the hassle.

Grateful for these three things in my life, in abundance:

Someone (plural) to love
Something to do
Something to look forward to

Gee Ruthxx, that was really kind and thoughtful of your friend to do that for you

It's always nice to have friends that do small unexpected things for you.

Like Lois, I'm grateful to have found love. If I lose it tomorrow, it is so great that it will sustain me the rest of my life.

I'm grateful that I found something to wear to a party last night. (although it took me over an hour, and there are clothes strewn all over my dressing room floor)
And I'm grateful that I didn't spill anything on it, because I'm going to wear it again to another damn party tonight.

I am grateful that the doctors are finally going to do something for Pam. She took yet another attack yesterday and had to leave work for the hospital. If you knew Pam you would know she is in a lot of pain when she leaves work, because she is a work aholic. They came her some meds to take for the next 15 days and with in that time she needs to get in touch with her family doctor who will in turn get in tough with the specialist. They are going to stretch her asophigus(Spelling terrible). They also gave her something for the acid reflux and gas in her belly. I feel so badly for her, she is in such discomfort all the time, but maybe now they will be able to help. Please remember her in your thoughts and prayers.
I am so thankful for my friends who are always there when I need them.
I am thankful for my DD and DS who constantly show me love even when I don't deserve it. I love them so much!
And my DH who puts up with so much BS from me, he is my sweetie.

Thanks Ellis,
I feel so badly for Sojo, been sitting her crying for her. Wish we could all just give her a big hug for real.
Virginia

Default Hey...

Thank you so much Virginia. Everyone's words of comfort mean so much to me. I am feeling more at peace this morning. Thank God I've been on meds the last few weeks because I think they are finally kicking in. I have been much more clear headed and I feel I will be able to handle Saturday. I have even taken an interest in things that I have let go by the wayside... like housecleaning! I just keep reminding myself that my grandmother lived a full and happy life, and the last few years were very difficult with the Alzheimer's and dementia. She was often afraid and didn't know where she was. Thankfully my mom worked in her unit at the nursing home so she was there for her often. Its better this way but still very sad.

Today I am grateful for anti-depressants and the life of my grandmother... the matriarch of a large and wonderful family! Three daughters, twelve grandchildren, twenty-three great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild!

Today I am grateful for my friends Claire and Doug who are coming over tomorrow afternoon to put up my Christmas Tree! I know I could just ask them but they wanted to know if I was decorated and said they's be over after lunch tomorrow. Maybe they'll stay for dinner - Shepherd's Pie and coleslaw, WASP Soul Food!
