I am 38weeks pregnant. I had a doctor's visit today with my OBGYN,
It just made me happy when I realized that throughout my entire pregnancy I was able to receive great medical treatment from doctors that I trust.

My husband fell of a ladder on Sunday. He was in pain after bruising and hurting his ribs. I ran to him and rubbed his back gently, not criticizing (he was holding tools, not holding on properly and did not properly fastened the ladder). I just kept saying I was happy he was conscious and then I helped him to get to bed, applied cream and ice, brought water and painkillers. I begged him to be careful because I need him so much. I was patient (which I am very often not) and have been patient and understanding as he has been in pain and complaining for few days.
Closer to him. More attuned.

One of my coworkers had a medical issue yesterday requiring an ambulance. Another co-worker called the ambulance so that I could concentrate on keeping coworker 1 conscious and responding. Co-worker 2 talked to me about the incident afterwards which allowed me to let go of a fair portion of the anxiety I was feeling.
They helped to make a bad situation easier to cope with.

My coworker always keeps me supplied with dark chocolate granola bars, often I will find them sitting on my desk when I arrive or when I get out of class. Today I had already eaten my lunch and was still hungry with several hours to go and he breaks out a new box of bars to share with me.
His granola bar gifts make me feel that I have a friend at work and it's nice to know someone thinks about me. It also makes it easier to work rather than sit there and think about being hungry.

I realized that shaving my head when I was losing my hair from chemo made me feel powerful and strong. There's nothing left to hide behind.

I had my hair cut today by the same woman who has been cutting it for 35 years - she's like an aunt to me.
She's the only person who "knows" my wavy/curly hair well enough to make it look good cut after cut. She's one of the few people in my life with whom I can speak honestly.

I had a customer who was very frustrating. My supervisor stepped up and cleared it up.
My supervisor gave me ideas of other ways to deal with the situation.

Today is National Caregivers Day and I am so grateful we have Loni to help us out with an aging parent.

I feel thankful for having a supportive team of people that I work with!
It reminded me that work isn't just a place to get things done, but It can also be a place where you find supportive, creative, talented people that help you become a better person.

My friend took my child trick-or-treating so that I could spend time with an older child and his friends. I rarely get to hang out with my son and his friends.
I was able to clean up my kitchen and interact with my teenager and his friends while they made pizzas.

checked in on me when I was late for a meeting. I had forgotten (and I am the committee chair) but they came to me to see if I was alright.
He reminded me we all get overwhelmed sometimes and it wasn't the end of the world that I forgot.

My 15-year-old daughter Grace cooked dinner with me when she could have been doing homework or going out for Halloween. I'm grateful each time she wants to creatively express herself, with or without me, and how she's building skills to become an independent young adult. This special time is also selfishly one I love as a mother-daughter event, where I get to hear what her day was like, other things she's thinking about, etc.
We had fun together, got to chat, make fun comments, critique the food, etc.
