I'm thankful for my education because I know that no one will take my education away from. I'm thankful that I have access to education because not every body was the privilege to education.
Education reminds me that my goals are endless as long as I try my best.

I'm grateful for my mother who cooks me food everyday because I can't cook for anything.
This makes me function everyday.

The listener at the end of the help line was a very good listener and allowed me to weep and sob and try to be coherent, then helped me to realise that there were things I could do myself that would perhaps be helpful
Having her listen helped me to unload all my distress and to feel understood. I took an action she had suggested and it has been helpful.

I took easily prepared food to my friend’s home, for lunch and spent the afternoon with her.
I felt surprised to receive another Thank You by text today, as she had already thanked me yesterday BUT it reminded me that she does suffer from what is called “chemo-brain”, no matter how positive she is otherwise..

My sister shared with me the darling gifts that her three children gave her for Mother's Day!
I appreciated the connection my sister and I have in that moment and how much the love she gives her kids comes back to her.

I walked the dog along the top of the bank yesterday; after 10 days of grey cloud and drizzle, the sun shone and the skylarks were out, flying high above the fields and singing their hearts out again.
It made me feel warm and alive

Dr Michael Greger of nutritionfacts.org posted a video yesterday completely dispelling the concern for cyanide poisoning from ground flaxseeds.
This is a great resource, as I can now show it to anyone who might be concerned about the use of ground flaxseed, which is especially needed for me living in Sweden where our confused governmental food agency has even banned the sale of ground flax out of ungrounded fear.

I had several friends over for a "picnic" to which I had cooked lots of delicious whole food plant-exclusive (vegan) food, which they liked, and they also surprised me with some wonderful moving-in presents ahead of time.
Not only was it wonderful to hear that they liked the food I had made, but I was so overwhelmed by their kind gifts. There were homemade things, a cute potted plant, and some things I had thought of getting myself a million times but never actually getting. Most of all though, I'm just so grateful they came at all, we had a lovely time just talking together, they are truly the best friends ever.

My mom went through surgery a while a go, and I've been helping her out a lot more recently because of it. I'll go the pool with her or bring food and other things to her room, or remind her to take her medicine. Recently it's been getting really, really annoying and I was about to say something to her when she sent me the most heartfelt thank you I've ever received for helping her out, how she hadn't told me enough how helpful I'd been and the like.
My Mom is really important to me and getting that sense of gratitude from her was really an invigorating feeling that I'm sure will carry over for the rest of the week.

A friend I hadn’t heard from for a while responded to my text message.
I haven’t said thank you - my initial message was just to send good wishes and the response just told me where the family had been. I was relieved to hear from him. As I suspected, they are so very busy.

My romantic partner is interested in exploring new avenues of sexuality in our relationship.
I feel more comfortable with myself and my desires, and less ashamed or embarrassed about them.

My friend Judith replied to my mail where I had talked about feeling lonely and lost.
Her thoughtful response helped me begin to see my life just a little differently.

I am grateful for the opportunity to work, and for an acquaintance that saw enough potential to reach out out of the blue a year after I had seen him last.
This happened half a year ago and not a day has gone by without giving thanks to this. It reminds me to treasure every relationship, no matter how brief.

My beautiful daughter keeps asking me to hug her. I know she thinks it is only for her, but I enjoy it immensely.
I makes me also feel good to know I am loved.

Despite feeling lonely, I joined a group of acquaintances at a local-history presentation and it was interesting enough to bring me out of my loneliness for a while.
It gave me issues and ideas to think about, instead of my own loneliness.

Thankful that although I've been feeling the debilitations of aging, I also am recognizing the value of having experienced many things that have conspired to have brought very positive goodness to life as it is now.

Thankful for the Facebook Hurdy Gurdy group. A number of members quickly responded to a plea for help in diagnosing and fixing a particular problem with my instrument.
People were so caring and generous with their advice!

Thankful for some small progress in a daily intention to listen more and to speak positively about others, especially in their absence
Grateful to find some encouragement by not disqualifying the positive when recognizing the falling short of an ideal.

I'm really glad that I have family members that will get me birthday presents even though they're halfway across the country and I don't put in as much time as I should with them
Because I got these gifts, my birthday was made an even more special experience.

Friday nights reading through other people's sharing of gratitude on Thnx4 gives a positive feeling of mudita. Yes, I've been thankful for this before and I'm thankful again tonight! I especially liked spoon dog's thanks for a pet cat and the shared photo. Here is a pic of my one-half eyed cat, Blink, finding the only patch of sunlight one day in return.
