She opened a conversation with a stranger in a foreign city and opened up about her life
I felt able to give her time and space, to explore our mutual views and to be friendly in a different way.

I had to give some paperwork to a friend, and she took the time and energy to come down four flights of stairs so I wouldn't have to go up them.
I wasn't feeling so well, so it saved me the energy I was already low on, and it also saved me time.

I have the ability to use a workout facility free of charge
it lets me get my mind off of the daily tasks that can sometimes be overwhelming.

When waking up today, I felt a nasty backpain. Then I went to get the hot-water bag and put it on my back - the effect was immense, the relief so pleasant :-)
I am thankful for haveing a hot-water bag and being in a position to actually fill it up with hot water.

I managed to clear the garden of mess today, buckets, spilled compost and sand, and then I cleared the drive which is like a chaotic working space. Things went well and faster than I thought
I can now look at my garden and its tidy and makes me feel tranquil. Cleaning the drive cleared the space I need to build a gray water bio filter.

We bought two new electric toothbrushes. They prove very good, charging quickly and cleaning well.
I imagined myself losing my teeth into old age. I am truly grateful for my remaining rather battered teeth and the way cleaning them makes me feel!

I went for a long run on beach. It was empty and peaceful in the late afternoon.
I felt gratitude for the time at the beach. I meditated. I let go of things that were bothering me.

The people at a homesteading group I attend for sharing their knowledge, their cuttings and harvests.
This group has taught me so much, given me so many ideas and shared so many plants to help get my land productive.

I felt so grateful this morning because of lot of things. For my family and friends (esp my mom) and for being alive and healthy and to be living in the US. My mom was like take money and get more candy for the kids :) I sometimes tend to forget what an awesome person she is. That cheered me up great deal this morning.
It gives me succor to know that I have a family, home and food on my table.

I frequently chat with my best friend over Google Hangouts while we're both at work.
I'm grateful that she wants to talk to me during her work day and I enjoy our conversations.

My coworker brought in surprise cookies, including my absolute favorite kind (snickerdoodles!)
I got to have a nice, tasty surprise to go with my tea. Luckily I had room in my "food budget" and it was totally worth the indulgence. Love it when I get one of my favorite things as a total surprise! :D

A coworker helped me to fill out some documents I have not much experience completing. She really helps me unconditionally, whenever I need her help.
Her help, and expertise was beneficial for a meeting we were having at the time.

I stayed and listened to my colleague at the end of the day. And gave him some tips in regards to his challenges.
I felt happy to help and that we can be there for each other

It put my daily worries aside so I could just enjoy moving my body.
