My daughter and I were in a hit and run accident today. I am thankful for a lot of things -- that we are both okay, that another driver pulled over to check on us, and another person who, shortly thereafter, saw me looking around behind my car and offered to help me -- He thought I had lost something, but I was actually looking at the bumper. Then later in the evening a stranger asked my husband how his day was and they ended up talking about the car accident.
Maybe there are three nice people for every not-so-nice person. Good to know they are outnumbered!

My bosses and coworkers have great senses of humor.
Having a long day at work didn’t feel like a chore.

I had an extremely busy work day with multiple complex patients that resulted in working late and feeling exhausted.
I was appreciative of having a very helpful staff and colleagues that stepped in when I needed it. I was also reminded of the impact I was making on those I cared for and how appreciative they were of my care despite how long they waited to see me.

My coworker let me vent and cry when I was going through something that was emotionally and mentally exhausting me.
It helped me work through my feelings instead of keeping them in; it gave me a safe space to say what I was thinking.

Last night, during yoga class my teacher adjusted my pose. I feel thankful that despite many inexperienced students, she finds the time and makes the effort to correct me too. It makes me feel considered and valued.
I went deeper and more correctly into the pose.

I went to a concert and it was really wonderful
It reminded me that happiness does not always have to be found within myself, but I can fully be a part of experiences that bring such joy to my life.

I round on patients and and always ask if there is anyone they would like to recognize. When they give me a name, I try and ask for specifics. Today I told 3 employees about their recognition. Two of the employees were over joyed. My employee totally light up. She was ecstatic.
I felt so happy. It was amazing to see her reaction. She was so happy. I felt so lucky that I was able to give her such positive feedback.

I'm thankful for my best friend for accepting me as I am despite my quirks and oddities.
She makes me feel that I can be honest and open to her and know that she won't think I'm weird.

My friend stopped by on her birthday so I could give her a present and she brought ME flowers!
My friend's kindness to me in junior high school long ago was a lifeline then and our friendship over the years has been a great blessing. The flowers today really brightened a grey afternoon!

My Bestie's birthday is today. Not only is she my Bestie but she's a great Boss and colleague. We work for an awesome "Thriving" company and it's so wonderful to have our work environment enhanced by great relationships. I hope this is the best birthday ever for her and that she enjoys many more to come.
We always have fun but especially on special occasions.

my son is sick and we are able to take him to a doctor with good hospitality and care for him.
It keeps my child healthy, or prevents further sickness.

I took a turn to cook dinner last night because my wife had a long and trying day at work.
I felt closer to her and was happy for her to have had an easy evening.

Most nights my son and I take our dogs on a walk around the neighborhood. Last night, after a particularly frustrating day, we set out. Once outside, I felt the strain lift as I focused on breathing deeply and listening to him recount his day.
It reminded me not to sweat the small stuff and to appreciate what I have. More importantly, I felt incredibly grateful to be able to spend time with my son!
