Good one, traveler! (Seems you could be grateful for having good sense. Smiley Happy)

 

I'm going to be offline a few days, so let me toss a bevy of extra thoughts of gratitude out there: I'm thankful for good health. May I one day also have good sense. Smiley Happy

 

I'm grateful for our national parks, our state parks, our bike trails and the time to enjoy them.

 

I'm grateful for friends and family to hang out with and the kind reception of strangers.

Ok. I'll bite.

  I'm grateful, although a better word might be 'lucky' or 'fortunate', that DW and I have planned and set goals for 40 years, then were able to achieve them, with no major setbacks. Things happen to people beyond their control that totally disrupt their lives. I'm grateful we had nothing major, and reached our goals.

 

   But I still think running a few miles a day, and weight lifting, is doing far more to stave off coronary heart disase than gratitude.

I am grateful that I'm sort of winning the war against the aggressive vines, and have a relaxing morning at the hair salon! Smiley Happy

I am grateful for the promise of renewal that comes packaged in each dawn, each early morning opportunity to reassess, redirect and reinvent! Let's go get 'em! Rah!

I'm grateful that although I was diagnosed with breast cancer 11 months ago, the treatment was surprisingly not too bad. Although I had to give up my workouts for a couple of months, I'm regaining my strength now. I'm grateful for that, because I spent an hour in 90 deg. weather yesterday afternoon, and another 45 minutes this morning, cutting a terrible overgrowth of vines on my property .. and plan to go out again after lunch!


This is fantastic news! Double hurrahs! Smiley Happy

Who wants to join me in creating an online Gratitude Journal? I’m thinking we can post a message of gratitude either daily, weekly, or as we are able, and all reap the benefits of one another's gratitude.

 

I'll start:

 

I'm grateful for coffee this morning. I'm also grateful for the numerous song birds outside my window.
