My husband made me my usual cup of morning coffee even though he's not feeling well today.
I felt loved and cared for, AND I got to have a delicious cup of coffee. :-)

I had a rough past weekend and left my phone in an uber. Although the driver refused to give it back to me, my mom understood and got me a new one.
She helped me move past my mistake, and focus on the future.

I saw wildlife on my commute this morning.
It reminded me that my choice to move away from the city was the right one. I am grateful to be closer to nature!

I'm so lucky to have great and reliable transportation into work every day.
I do not have to worry and stress about finding a way to get to work in the morning.

I was feeling ill, not sure what was happening & my HMO offers appts via the phone so I was able to talk to my Dr. the same day to discuss my situation. This resulted in a plan for my care.
I felt less afraid about my situation, more at ease & was reminded how fortunate I am to have good, accessible health care.

I am grateful for living in this country. It is such a privilege to be living in the USA. I appreciate the road traffic sense, how safe it is for the pedestrians and the bikers. I appreciate the side walks. I am also thankful for the free libraries.
I am thankful for the time I have lived here. Its awesome.

I actually wrote an essay that managed to reflect my ideas on an assigned subject at university.
I am sensing the capacity to move more freely within my self. Deep inner self 'wrote' the essay from the material the 'student' had provided. Grateful that the inner self is showing up and participating in this project of finding 'the words to say it'.

I have a good job!
I was reminded of how others who work as hard or even harder at their jobs do not have such great benefits offered in their place of employment.

My parents take care of my 7 month old son while I'm at work. My aunt, who lives with them, always texts me and gives me little updates about him.
Today, I really missed MJ (my son) and it was nice to hear what and how he's doing. If I get updates from her, I feel happy and elated that he's doing ok while I'm gone.

My friends Kristine, Mike and Seneca offered (out of the blue) to come by and help make a Halloween haunted house. The ST family usually does a big Halloween installation but due to busyness, we were going to cancel this year. Now that we have some help - Halloween is rescued!
A little help from friends and some extra decorations - we can continue our great Halloween tradition.

A friend I've been on the outs with helped me tarp my leaking roof, despite the tensions between us. Still feel a little icky, but this at least reminds me that everything doesn't have to be perfect in relationships.
Kept me from getting wet and prevented damage to my house.

That a volunteer group that could turn me down is instead letting me join. Compassion, empathy - they do exist still.
It reminded me that people will appreciate my worth.
