I am thankful for my brother, a life long friend, for a text that made me smile.
I found out we are both using the same app to practice meditation, a funny surprise. I'm inspired/motivated to continue my lovely new habit.

Yes exactly. 2 days ago, I went on the walk along the river where I live and indeed I saw those incredible rainbows. They always go by 2. One of them was complete. You could see the arch from left to right (and right to left) up to the ground. It was so bright that it was piercing through the trees. No picture unfortunately as I did not take my phone with me.
I felt filed with wonder about how beautiful the nature could be and how sophisticated the nature is, pondering about the optical phenomenon I also felt connected as a teenager, who was walking his dog, was also under the spell of this rainbow, taking picture. We exchanged a few words. Felt good to have this inter-generation connection, drawn by a beautiful and magical phenomenon.

I saw an item on tv about fages.
I appreciated the different approaches in the world.

The people at the library's writing group that gave me positive feedback on my manuscript.
This made me feel inspired and capable and encouraged me to keep writing.

I have been in a state of mind where I had virtually no hope left in my life. This person reminded me that people do care. There are no words that can describe how deeply touched I feel.
I feel some hope for the future for the first time in a very long time.

I'm grateful for all the people on the internet who give their time, energy, expertise, and wisdom.
Over time these people have helped me know and understand myself better and to grow as a human being in ways that I never would have otherwise.

Grateful for the beautiful colours of Autumn. Went for a walk yesterday. Enthralled by the autumn colours, and the sunshine. All so beautiful, it made me very thankful
Exactly what it said above! This planet is so beautiful, and I am lucky to be able to get out into nature and enjoy it.

Doing after-school transport for grandson, with a stop for lunch, when I found out granddaughter was home (due to teacher planning day). Swung by & picked her up to join us for lunch. My daughter-in-law thanked me, saying I went above & beyond (though it didn't feel that way).
My first reaction was I didn't go above & beyond, then I thought wait a minute my reaction diminishes the exchange. Wouldn't it be better to accept the other's point of view, feelings and enjoy the thanks. I did & my heart felt a little fuller. Hmmmm, so a wonderful little lesson learned about gratitude - stay open & welcome it where it shows up. ❤

Lying in bed together, we were spooning as we often do, chest to back legs bent together. I felt his warmth, bulk and the softness of his skin under my hand.
I am SOO grateful for his presence, care and the fullness he brings to my life. He makes me so much more than I would be alone.

My new personal trainer spent an extra half hour explaining the new programme in detail.
I got a good sense of the programme and felt valued and respected.

I am thankful that I can swim every morning before the sun rises. I consider my morning swim as meditation time. When I am finished, the sun is rising. I can see the blue sky and the puffy clouds. How magnificent and vast.
I feel that I have been given another day to try to do better.

We gathered today with a couple of Friends to discuss some work we intend to do. We still have the present a work proposition and still is not sure that we get it. Still I find nice to meet with friends to talk about these things, it made me feel useful in some way.
If we get it, we would have some income which we really need currently (all the three of us), but I didn’t want to focus on that. These would be my first project as independent, and all I want is to get some experience… for the future but also for the present. When we finished, I feel really grateful (hope my friends feel that way too)

My fiance made me coffee in the morning while I was still asleep!
I woke up to the smell of coffee (which is very pleasant) and it saved me time, as I didn't have to make it myself. He was already gone for work so I didn't get to thank him but I will!

I experienced a most satisfying hot shower this morning.
Being in that moment was refreshing and rejuvenating. It reminded me that it is the simple things in life that bring us the most joy.

I worked as an interpreter for this program with international participants for the last 3 days and helped coordinate as well as interpret.
I was honestly so touched that the participants took the time to thank me and told me they admired my skills. I felt like all the work and time I put into it all was more than worth it 100 times over. It also made me wonder if this is the type of project I want to see myself doing more in the future.

It made me happy to have them in my life.
