Default Today I'm grateful for....

Felt sure there was already a thread for this, but upon searching I found the only threads on gratitude were from a few years ago now (unless there is a similar thread out there that I've forgotten or missed!) so I thought I might as well start a shiny new thread

I've read quite a bit about the positive impact expressing gratitude can have, like this blog from today, so it should be a good thread to have on here, it can be literally anything, no matter how small or large. List as few, or as many as you like

Today I'm grateful for:

- This site, obviously
- Some warm sunny weather today.
- The patience of my parents over the last few years when I haven't been able to go out and get a job and an income and they still have to provide for me even into my mid-20s.
- Having a wonderful holiday to Sri Lanka this summer and experiencing and becoming interested in Buddhism.
- Living in the countryside and being only a half an hour walk away from a forest.
- Being able to talk to biscuits again.
- The help and support I've received from my counsellor and peer support over the last few months in helping me get out into the world.
- Having an awesome, intelligent and open-minded sister who is always a joy to be around.


That's all from me for now, I realise I'm very lucky for many aspects of my life and I should be more grateful sometimes

I'm really grateful for having the company of my best friend on such a lovely sunny day, going to the pub where people were really friendly and chatting with two of them.

To be fair, you do post with a bit of an accent.

Being able to catch the bus straight after work. The bus at my workplace takes long in comparison to other London bus routes.

Grateful for those that have really rallied round me and my mum this week as well as those that have supported me with well wishes. At times like this you definitely discover who your friends are.

I'm grateful for my eldest son who is having to do everything at the moment including shopping , cooking and driving me everywhere I need to be, he hates driving and gets anxious about it but is doing it all without complaint.
