I needed to a blood draw other day. I have been to this one place and I have had trouble with one person before. She had problems taking blood out of me. I got poked a lot of time. So I had stopped going there. This time she was there as well although somebody else was poised to take my blood. This woman could not find my veins so she brought this other woman in. I was calm. In one shot she got blood out quickly. I was so glad for her and me.
I often have trouble giving blood as lot of people do not find my veins and poke so much so I have to go back to give blood. This time blood draw was a lot quicker and painless.

I am grateful for us both retiring towards the end of March. I am grateful for the change in my husband with retirement.
I realized how my husband was focused at work so much so he was neglecting or ignoring everything else. One month into the retirement he is more free and happy. When I talked to me I know that he has listened to me. He seemed to have lot less on his mind. I love this new husband.

Got to see relatives and other family friends who I haven't seen for a long time as part of my California trip to see two nephews' celebrate their high school graduations.
Having these few and far between opportunities to get together reminds me of how quickly the kids grow up and we all age! And thankful that these get-togethers are for a celebration, not for a funeral.

Thankful that Myleva accompanied me to our niece's commencement and that she took in positive feelings of mudita for all of the happy families and friends of the graduates. She really seemed to enjoy herself and was happily chatting with members of my family. Thankful that my young brother and my sister-in-law were able to take in the feelings of pride for their valedictorian daughter and love from family and friends.

I am so grateful for my teenage son. He has such a great disposition -- fun loving and rarely down. He goes with the flow. I had to majorly change his 18th bday party plans and he totally embraced the new, lower cost idea. He's affectionate and still gives me tons of hugs. And he makes us all laugh so hard. Last night I heard him talking about politics and he was so well versed and articulate!
It made me feel like my husband and I have done a good job raising him. It made me appreciate him so much! It put me in a good mood.

Grateful for personal changes over the last decade that lately have resulted in being comfortable at social events and even finding enjoyment in them! Tonight's outing with some co-workers was nice, and there were connections with a few whom I've rarely had opportunity to converse.

I had a consultation with my GP today and we agreed - no more anti-depressants . . . for now.
I am so glad to have had this consultation and to have clarified with my doctor that I’m trying other solutions, talking therapy and herbal remedies, rather than chemicals.

For my main client who always greets me with a warm smile and makes me feel like I add a lot of value to the work his company does. He confides in me and trusts me with a lot of his dreams for the company and his concerns for his team.
Makes me feel like I matter, I am smart and I am helping him.

My friends were ready to spend time with me, to listen to me talk about my problems, to offer help and advice and to support me.
I was so grateful to have the opportunity to open up, in a safe, non-judging environment. I was so warmed by their obvious care and understanding, by their desire to help. They reassured me that there are ways forward.

I helped my 80-year old mother, who had fractured her knee a few weeks ago, to take a shower.
I felt like she really didn't have to thank me actually, that it was my responsibility/duty as her daughter to assist her in her time of need as she recovers. It was as if the roles were reversed from the time I was little and needed assistance with basic hygiene., but this act helped to make us closer.

I have hiked for four days in a row with my husband. I am grateful for this luxury that life has given me.
I am grateful that was able to spend this time in the nature with my loving husband. I felt very much connected to him and nature.

I am thankful for the internet... I am learning to code now in attempts of a career change (hoping this will happen in a year) and I am basically learning from free or low cost resources on the internet.
It's almost been 2 months of focused studying and I feel like I have learned so much and am able to now build my own very simple applications. I want to thank those people who created these resources. I would not be able to get so far along without them!
