I had my hair cut today by the same woman who has been cutting it for 35 years - she's like an aunt to me.
She's the only person who "knows" my wavy/curly hair well enough to make it look good cut after cut. She's one of the few people in my life with whom I can speak honestly.

My friend, who said she considers herself as family to me.
This made me feel as though my world is larger, that I have more love and connection in my life.

I had a customer who was very frustrating. My supervisor stepped up and cleared it up.
My supervisor gave me ideas of other ways to deal with the situation.

Today is National Caregivers Day and I am so grateful we have Loni to help us out with an aging parent.
She is amazing and with her help my father-in-law is able to stay in his home and we are able to go to our jobs each day and maintain our daily schedules.

I caught up with 2 like minded friends and we discussed our learnings from things we attended during the day and how we can use them in our community.
I felt blessed to be able to have wonderful conversations and work on doing good.

I feel thankful for having a supportive team of people that I work with!
It reminded me that work isn't just a place to get things done, but It can also be a place where you find supportive, creative, talented people that help you become a better person.

My friend took my child trick-or-treating so that I could spend time with an older child and his friends. I rarely get to hang out with my son and his friends.
I was able to clean up my kitchen and interact with my teenager and his friends while they made pizzas.

checked in on me when I was late for a meeting. I had forgotten (and I am the committee chair) but they came to me to see if I was alright.
He reminded me we all get overwhelmed sometimes and it wasn't the end of the world that I forgot.

My 15-year-old daughter Grace cooked dinner with me when she could have been doing homework or going out for Halloween. I'm grateful each time she wants to creatively express herself, with or without me, and how she's building skills to become an independent young adult. This special time is also selfishly one I love as a mother-daughter event, where I get to hear what her day was like, other things she's thinking about, etc.
We had fun together, got to chat, make fun comments, critique the food, etc.

My co-worker validated that I am a good supervisor but also that I have Leadership qualities.
Validated that I am true to myself and operate with an ethical mindset.

I was over charged for lunch and I called up the restaurant to inform them. I was then offered a free lunch next week for me and my sister.
The restaurant understood that they made a mistake. And I get to enjoy the yummy food again for free!

My son Ontonio (16 years old) was walking home from a friend's house and decided on a short cut through the park. Four males wearing masks (last night it was Halloween) attempted to rob him. They pulled a gun out on him. I'm so very thankful for Paladin's security patrolling the area because there presence was what my son needed to run and seek help.
We are blessed he made it home safely without harm.

My son with significant mental health and emotional issues receives a monthly SSI check. As his payee I went to pull money for him this morning and his account had a $0 balance. Usually when anything like this happens he loses control and tries to take it out on me and gets very angry. Today, he just said, 'ok, we will get it fixed as soon as we can. Can I just please borrow some money for the things I need?' I was SO relieved.
I felt as if maybe there is some hope for Matthew and him maturing. He is 28 and this is the first time ever he didn't overreact to something like this.

My grandchildren helped me feel better when I fell and cut myself.
Their attention comforted me and helped me calm down.
