The counselor at my kids schools changed their schedules around so that I didn't have to make extra trips to and from!
This makes my next 2 months so much easier and worry free!

I'm grateful that my concussion symptoms have gotten better. I used to feel bad most days, and now bad days are rare.
It makes me appreciate feeling good and knowing that you can get better.

My friend Carolyn, who is a superb seamstress, sent us new masks for the Autumn season. They are beautiful and super functional! So happy!
I don’t have to order fancy masks!

My girlfriend's dad paid me for helping him install lights in his new house and dig holes for flowers when I was going to do it for free.
It gave me extra money that went straight into savings

I am grateful for my mom because I'm sick and she makes sure to make me tea and give me the attention that someone that's sick needs.
This made me realize the importance of family and it's also helping me get better.

Mi padre no me ha dejado solo en esta etapa difícil de mi vida laboral, hasta en horas en las que debe estar dormido, me acompaña
Que esté conmigo me hace sentir segur, tranquilo y en paz, ya que esta gente está de manera ilegal en mi contra. Sabe que mi padre etá ahí es un caldito de pollo para mi alma

West Sacramento, CA, USA: After over nine months now away from my place of employment over the past 28 years, I am grateful, surprised and humbled to have received a card from my erstwhile coworkers with inscribed expressions of thanks and feelings of missing me.
I'm so grateful for these who had made my work life so easy and that they sent loving thoughts my way!

I talked to my mom on the phone today. I try to make sure I call her every day. She's 80 and is still totally independent (she has more energy than some people half her age!), but I just love and appreciate her more and more all the time. Since my dad passed away last year, she has amazed me with her resilience. She has such a positive outlook, and takes great care of herself (she exercises every morning) -- she's my "hero" and role model. I love and appreciate that she's my mom.
Having a mom like mine benefits me because she makes my life richer by being part of it. We support each other emotionally -- I'm there for her when she needs me, and she's there for me when I need her.

Honestly, I was just being a good friend. I've always been there for him and we're like each other's best friend.
When this person thanked me, I felt like he was actually glad to have met me. Which made me feel really good.

Today, I'm grateful for the rain. It was so nice to be able to wear warm, comfy, snuggly clothes and turn on the gas fireplace when the weather turned wet and chilly. I made a nice bowl of soup for lunch, too, and it's exactly what I wanted. Not only did the soup warm me up, but it was delicious, too! It's feeling like the turn of the seasons and I'm welcoming it today.
It made me feel grateful that we have different seasons to celebrate, and today was the first day we used our gas fireplace. One of my cats fell asleep in my lap in my office as I was working, so she also kept me comfy and warm.

I feel super grateful for my dog, Toast, who we got at the beginning of this pandemic. He brings such joy to my life, he is adorable, and he gets me outside multiple times per day. I adore him.
His presence benefits me because I feel calm and happy when Im around him

This person is actually deceased, my ex-father-in-law. Yesterday, a reminder that this person would have been 95 next week on their birthday, reminded me of their contribution to my daughter's life and character while she was growing up.
Leading by example. I wrote this "birthday card" in memoriam... Happy Birthday Lionel. Thinking of you. You would be 95 now. You are missed. Thank you for investing your love, your dreams, your attention and dedication into Brittany. You’d be so happy to see your “little doctor” in action. She is awesome, Grandpa! You were such an inspiration and example. I remain grateful. ❤️

My dad bought me a laptop because I really needed it for online class.
It reminded me to be grateful for everything because I know money does not grow on trees.

My friend played a game with me that I didn't know he had.
This was a pleasant surprise, as we had a load of fun and it really brightened my day, at least.

This morning, my husband woke up with our 2 dogs so that I could sleep a bit longer, made us coffee, and asked how I was feeling (because I had a headache yesterday).
I got to sleep a bit more, I didn't have to stop for coffee before work, and I felt loved and cared for. My days at work are hard, so I can't say that it "made my whole day glorious", but it was a great way to start the day, and reflecting on this, during the day, brought a smile back to my face.

I walked along the bay in the evening. It was calm and peaceful. The tide was coming in. I saw birds and moss covered rocks.
It made me forget about all the distractions and annoyances of the day. It made me appreciate nature.

Mis Hijos. Me dieron los buenos días con un tierno abrazo
Me hicieron sentir amado, valorado y respetado. Por lo que soy, solo por ser.
