My husband makes me feel grateful every day by just being him. After 30+ years I still look forward to seeing him every morning and at the end of every day.
A good morning kiss brightens my day.

I took a hot shower this morning.
It reminded me how simple things can bring such pleasure, and how fortunate I am to have hot, running water.

The salesperson at the car parts store helped me choose economical new windshield wipers, and even put them on the car for me!
He saved me time and frustration, and even took the old ones to the trash for me. The whole transaction was smooth and I felt cared for by this kind stranger.

I am grateful for the technology today. It helps us live a more connected life... phone, computers etc. Much of my time is spent apart from family and friends, but technology helps me bridge that gap and feel closer to others.
This reminds me of how blessed I am to have others to connect with...being connected to others I care about and who care for me is at the core of my well-being. Thanks to God for making people so creative and able to develop tools for Connection!

When I mentioned that I would be able to go to karaoke with this group, many of the members seemed genuinely excited and talked about looking forward to hearing me sing.
It made me happy to realize that there are people who genuinely like to hear me sing and are happy to hang out with me.

I feel grateful that the clinic starts in the afternoon today. I needed to recover a little bit and catch up on sleep.
It reminded me of the importance of self care and prioritizing my sleep and nutrition.

My daughter and her family live in NYC—and are safe and well. Even gave out treats from their stoop.
My gratitude is to God that my dear ones are safe in the face of terror.

My four year old told me she loved me! This was after I advised her about eating and not complaining about eating for her health etc. She probably only wanted me to stop with the preaching, but she said "I love you ma". Such a precious little strategy but made my day!
Immediately perked me up.

I walked around my deck this morning like I always do but the light snow falling added a peaceful start to my day.
There is always something special about the first snow.

A colleague explained the difficulties she is having with her line manager , and with a specific meeting taking place today. I tried to give her a different perspective so she could feel more in control and not as a victim.
I feld glad I could help, and I also feel like it helps me coping with similar situations in the future.

The train guards at the various train stations this week who made the effort, together with immense courtesy and a warm friendly smile and chat, to provide a portable wheelchair ramp to allow me to push my wife's wheelchair onto and off the train.
It made my wife and I feel special, very welcome on the train, and enabled a much easier and safer means to manipulate the wheelchair from the train to the platform, and visa versa.

I returned my brother-in-law's phone call as he wanted us to check in on each other's health. My wife wanted me to do this.
I was happy for her.
