What are two things that happened recently that you’re grateful for?

Studies have shown that gratitude has a positive impact on our physical and psychological health. In these times, it's especially important to take a moment to reflect on what you are thankful for. Share two things that have happened to you recently that you're grateful for 💗

 

 I'll start -

  1. I am thankful for technology as it allows me to stay connected with my family that lives 1,000+ miles away. I was able to celebrate my dad's birthday last week and Mother's Day yesterday using facetime. It's funny, I use video chat with my family way more now than before stay-at-home and COVID-19.
  2. I appreciate all of the frontline workers, but I'm especially grateful for my dog's vet this week. She came down with a really bad bacterial infection almost two weeks ago, and the vet gave her top-notch care. Going to the vet now is very different!

1) I am grateful to the people who listen to the health experts and wear masks while out in public.  2) I am also grateful to the comedians who make me laugh. A good laugh is really helpful in these difficult times.

1) I was able to speak to my younger brother who was dying of brain cancer thanks to a family friend who called me in Thailand so that I could say goodbye to my brother in hospice. He passed away the next day surrounded by his wife and children. May he rest in peace. He is in a better place. 

 

2) I am safely in Thailand (population 70 million) during the covid-19 crisis, where there have been 3,100++ cases and only 58 people died. Thank you to the Thai Government's public health officials who managed the crisis admirably.

I I’m grateful for the continuos healing process of my daughter with acquired TBI in an accident 4 years ago.

I am grateful for all the people that had helped us in the process.

I should said first that I’m grateful to God, without the strength he has given me I’m sure I couldn’t bear this.

Now I’m a caregiver, a mother, a therapist and psychologist.

English is not my first language, sorry for the mistakes.
