Early this morning I saw a wonderful sky in the early morning sunrise.
It reminded me of the power and beauty of nature and also the gift of sight.

the landscape is so nice at this time of year : fog on the ground, the wind turbines emerging in the sun rising
It makes me feeling part of the world's beauty and grandeur.

I thought today, with all the devastation occurring in our country, how thankful I am that so far I have not been directly, adversely impacted by terrorism or climate change.
I realized how blessed I am and how much I have to be thankful for.

I played a game of table tennis today and the joking, fun and exhilaration of the the game made me feel energetic, engaged and put me in great spirits.
I am lucky to have fun with friendly, kind people who are not extremely competitive.

Two of my coworkers prayed for my Dad today.
As soon as they found out what my Dad is going through, they wanted to pray for him and our family. Yesterday, one of them even cried with me as I was telling her. It really moved me, and their gesture means a lot to me.

I took my dog for a walk in the evening and the moon sat low and huge in the sky with clouds around it lit up by the sun setting.
It made me appreciate the beauty around me and remind me of the scale of the universe.

I was able to take time off from work to join my son on a class field trip.
It allowed time to spend together doing something fun, to meet his classmates, and get to learn a little more about him.

I checked in with a student on how she's doing. She talked about two related experiences where she's feeling rejected. I listened.
Good and grateful that I know her.

A hike in the woods, cool air, autumn leaves crunching underfoot.
I relax, let go, find peace in nature!

I am so thankful because i got my degree today. I am glad I did not fail at any course, although came quite close once. I am glad for all the support I got.
I feel so Happy now! Feeling proud and invincible. May be this is how it feels like to work hard for sth and achieve it. I went to McD and got a large milk share with vanilla in the bottom and chocolate at top. It was Lit. :)

I felt gratefull for the nature we have here in Norway. And the weather we had today. A perfect autumn day.
It made me smile and reminded me about how much I love my country. And how beautiful my country is.

My daughter's boyfriend is picking her up from the airport while her dad and I are at work.
By him picking her up, neither of us had to miss time off from work. We didn't have to pay for an uber or other form of transportation. And it made her day!

My husband went to an estate sale for me over his lunch hour that was close to his place of work since I was unable to make it there myself. This is way out of his comfort zone, but he did it anyway. They were selling a large collection of pottery that I collect and he knew how important it was to me.
I felt so relieved and happy that he was willing to go out of his way to help me add to my pottery collection when I was unable to do so myself today.

In the midst of crazy circumstances, I have a great tribe of people that are watching my back.
I am blessed beyond measure! I have all the love and support that a person could hope for.

I am grateful for the artists in the world.
At great personal sacrifice the artists of the world - whether famous or unknown - lift the rest of us up with their creative energy made manifest in their work. Their efforts are an antidote to apathy, discouragement, and self-absorption.

My sister made me a great French toast breakfast.
I am 38weeks pregnant so this was just a big help in getting me through the day.

I was invited to attend an awards ceremony to help celebrate out student's success. The guest speakers were very inspirational, and the students had a wonderful energy
I was re-inspired

A few weeks ago I had an idea to improve one of our courses - but I don't have the skills to make my vision a reality. I mentioned the idea to a co-worker in the test centre, and then mostly forgot about it....today, she sent me the finished product...as I had envisioned, and even better! Now that I see the finished product, I think others could use this too! She's amazing!
This improvement will make the course material more flexible, ensure that students get feedback more quickly, and I think can be applied over and over again as required for refreshers - and pretty much across campuses!

Dana brought me a coffee this morning when I was working from home and very frustrated with what I was working on
I got my coffee!! I don't survive without coffee and when working from home I only have access to yucky coffee.

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.

Someone who I found out had been out of work for 6 years and who now has a job, went out of their way to try and help me pitch myself to her bosses.
Just made me feel good that there are kind ppl out there
