My friend monique invited me over to watch tv and eat food.
It was a fun relaxing time and I got to get out of the house and socialize

I am grateful to have both of my children here with me, where I can hold them and love them. I know some are not so fortunate, some have buried their babies.
It reminded me how fragile life can be, how fortunate my family is.

1. Grateful for the little cookbooks my Mom wrote out for me and my brother over thirty years ago. And for her story how, as a girl of seven having lost her mother, she had found a connection and comfort when encountering recipes written in her mom's hand. Glad she took the time to do the same for us.
Though I've not often availed myself of the recipes, today the Pumpkin Tea Cake brought a sense of sorely needed accomplishment and memories of my Mom's love after some recent bleak feelings.

I am receiving treatment for a common medical malady that would be impossible without health insurance - I’ve never been so grateful for that insurance!
It reminds me how privileged I am.

I introduced a scholar to a new tool to try and manage his feelings. It has had a positive effect.
The class is ringing smother and we are able to get places on time without having to deal with meltdowns.

The beautiful red roses in bloom on my morning walk.
It reminds me of the subtlety of how our senses change our whole experience because smelling the rose brightens my day.

I am so grateful for my husband, who works so hard to provide for his family and to be a good parent. He is so wonderful.
Everything he does benefits our family - he works hard and tries every day to be a good partner and father.

Nothing. They are my child. :). We are homeschooling for covid, and we are all in this together.
They need me, and bring me joy. Period.

On my morning walk I saw a dandelion growing out of concrete and rubbish. It was such a strong reminder of resilience and hope.

I feel grateful for the fact that I had the opportunity to take a standardized test at my school yesterday. I hadn't been able to take this at any other school and I was lucky that my school received district funding and permission to host the test.
I have a better chance at getting into the really exclusive colleges that I am interested in.

Today I woke up to an imperfect day - no sunshine that I got so used to seeing every morning, a bit of a heavy head, anxiety about the upcoming workload. But those exact imperfections reminded me how much I do have - I am alive with fully functioning body, have income and live in a beautiful place where I can enjoy morning walks before work. I once read a statement from someone recovering from a bad accident that stuck with me - if you are able to wash yourself and make a cuppa unaided that's such a lucky place to be. I try to savour that every morning in my shower and having my first coffee of the day.
Our days weave together the simple pleasures of daily life, which we should never take for granted. - A.S. Byatt

So grateful for the soil in our garden.
It was not great when we started working the plot over a decade ago but after a constant inflow of nice organic matter it rewards us with abundant produce.

I saw my boy's jumper 'frozen' this morning as he'd left it outside. It reminded me how lucky I am to have him at home for a few more days. And also how beautiful frosts are (and this might be the last this spring) even though they mean the nights are still so cold.
Life is short. Time is fast. No replay. No rewind. Enjoy every moment as it comes.

Was grateful during my daily walk to be struck by the beauty of the sun breaking through the foliage of the forest.
Reminded me that beauty can be around any corner and that mother nature's canvas is spread wide.

I felt grateful for being able to care for my mom, and for the fact her doctor is very caring and willing to spend plenty of time with us. I also got a chance to work in my little garden. Not everyone gets time to enjoy good weather, or has a fine little plot in which to plant things, or three sweet dogs for conpany.
It reminded me of the great satisfaction there is in taking care of people and other living things. It’s love.

My partner is patient with me even during my depressive episodes. She has given me space to figure out my next steps and focus on me even though it may be hard for her to not stress about money.
I feel good today. I made a little task list that will get me out of the house.

I went to the doctor for an examination and I didn't take my referral with me... I could not find it on my e-mail box... the lady at the reception was so nice that she organized a new referral for me despite she didn't have to help me.
It was a big relief that I didn't have to organize everything again and wait another few weeks, neither go to the medical place again during the pandemic. She was so nice despite me being kind of irritated (because another party failed to send me the referral, and I failed to make sure I have it). I am happy she did it simply out of her good will!
