100 lb. Club - An attitude of gratitude - February

02-01-2010, 07:19 AM
An attitude of gratitude...

For the past 10 years or so - every morning, I've written down five things for which I am grateful. Most days it's easy. Some days, not so easy. But, it always puts things into perspective. No matter how good or bad things seem to be - there are always things to be grateful for.

Got five to start out February?

02-01-2010, 07:20 AM
- a GREAT time with our family last weekend

- starting to hear better in one of my plugged up ears

- hearing the spontaneous laughter from my grandson

- willingness to try and doing well with my food while out of town last weekend

- friends, family, this site

Today, I'm grateful for:

Surviving my first day back at work after a year away from the classroom!
My bento box filled with delicious, low point food
My DH for driving 45 minutes each way to pick me up after work

02-01-2010, 03:58 PM
Today I'm grateful....

That I survived another bout of depression on my rollercoaster.
That I went to the dentist and had my teeth cleaned last week.
That my sons are healthy and my middle boy got an attendance award last week for not missing any school, though he's home sick today.
That my husband and I are connecting again.
That I have homemade soup at home for lunch.
