I'm grateful to my husband for all the vegetables he has grown for us over the years and the way he takes care of the soil. Today I'm especially grateful for the mustard greens that made such a tasty dinner.
I love gardening with my husband and the food he plants and that we help grow together makes me feel happy and healthy.

My daughter visited with her two sons.
We had a lovely time and she took home all the garden pots and equipment that I no longer use now that I live in a small space.

we have a lot of avocado that we couldn'r sell. I would have been sad, but the truth was we did get some profit with the avocado this week, and all the rest of the avocado we are eating them
Well, I do love avocado, is my favourite fruit, so that makes me very grateful... and happy

My husband was cleaning the house this afternoon and he fell of the ladder. I am grateful for his work and grateful that he apparently did not break anything. He is strong and hardworking.
The house is clean. The gutters don't plug up.

I played tennis today like every other Sundays. We were playing quite well coming back from a 5-1 to 5-4, 30-0 ahead. I played a very nice volley jumping in the air to catch the ball just to land on my ankle. End of the game. First, I felt frustrated but now, a few hours later, sitting confortably in an armchair, I am actually really grateful that nothing more serious happened to me. I can still walk and the pain is very acceptable. I will probably be ok within a few days. Could have been much much worse. So I am very happy.

I appreciate that she still looks to me for help.

This is pretty weak, but I am thankful for the weekend.
After such a horrible work week last week, I am just so grateful for that little bit of time to recharge my batteries away from the stresses of work.

My mother helps me to be a better mother. She has been a rock for me and makes this life easier for me and my family.
In so many ways! She gives me a night off when I need it. She steps up where I fall short. She it the best mom and grandmother!

Yesterday I was able to collaborate with seminarians from my city, and this made me feel good because they need for their collaboration formation of the parishioners, it feels good especially because they are local vocations that arise.

We slept late today.
It is rare that I don't have to be somewhere in the morning even on weekends and it feels great to take it easy.

All week long I got a lot of hugs, and really nice hugs! Ale, Karla, Ari, Eva, Andrea and Vanessa (even if those last two where under not-so-good circunstances). Never in my life have I given worth to these kind of things, how nice is to feel the warmth of a nice, long and tender hug!
The first hug made me realize how much am I valored between my friends and how much have I changed in these months. I passed from being the grumpy, sarcastic guy to a lovely, warm person.

My husband prepared and cooked a great meal. He got everything ready ahead of time so when I joined him in the kitchen, all the work was done.
I felt valued, supported and got a very full belly!

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.

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.
