I am gratefull for: having a mind, self-awareness, self-determination and a mediocre of control over my destiny.

I used to call myself Rickie The Grey but that was silly so I wish to be called just plain old "Rickie"

Today I am grateful for the following (not an exclusive list!)

- a job where I'm treated like an individual, not a 'drone' to churn out work
- a fiance who can solve many things with a hug
- Jestor, who gives sage advice to my rants :)
- the many other members of TOTJO that I talk to and are the reason I come here
- that my 'worry' threshold has a release valve that lets me sort stuff out before I have a complete meltdown
- my friends, who put up with far much more from life than they deserve.

food, my dog, my kids, a pretty functional body all things considered, a nearly as functional mind. a place to sleep out of the cold or burning hot. not getting shot at or mortared.

Today I am grateful for, among many many things: sunshine, Anonymous 4 and their beautiful Gregorian chants, my cats, my husband, the quilt I got for my wedding and all that it represents. I am also extremely grateful to be a Jedi, and be part of our wider community.

I love winter holidays; the days getting darker is a perfect opportunity for reflection.

Although I'm not the biggest fan of the fact that I've always been very skinny, I am grateful for my naturally astronomical metabolism, and overall health regardless. I love being light on my feet. It goes well with my learning how to be light in heart and lean in my thinking (even if both of those aren't constants, after all its probably not recommended that they are).

I'm grateful that, even though it's cold outside, I have ways to stay warm in here. That's...really big, actually.

I'm also grateful I just got the title of this thread. lol

Being able to go for walks again.
It's been too cold for the last week and I've really missed them.
Sunshine and fresh air - cold, fresh air.

Be a Jedi.

I cannot see what there is to not be grateful about... :blush:
Every experience is a lesson. Every experience is an opportunity to learn from.

I am grateful about hope.
Possibility.
Growth and change.
As the Fall colors appear in the sunset skies, I am reminded of renewal, and the spirit of rebirth.
I am grateful about this thread, about reminders of gratuity...
I am now thankful for mushrooms, did not appreciate them before, oh are they tasty stuffed and lightly cooked...
I am grateful for tips that I live on, the people I work with, and the friends here, or there, and everywhere...
Loving family and friends who support and care about me.
I am thankful about the connection we share and the recognition of it.
I am grateful about forgiveness and acceptance.
I am grateful to the ones who give with no expectation in return.
