    Yesterday I had a massive fall at the local shopping mall which was wet outside and slipped over ...

    ... So today I am extremely thankful

    - that I do not have sciatica, given the bruising and impact around my sciatic nerve (end of spine).

    - that overnight I have had no symptoms of head trauma, because the lump on my head where I fell was quite significant and it has now gone down.

    - that I am still here and can function normally, apart from alot of stiffness in my hips and head.

    1) I am able to see the final service for someone very special who has passed away, giving me a sense of ending and closing a chapter in my life

    2) I was feeling good enough to mow the lawn (just a long job sitting on a ride-on, not hard in good weather) It's been needing doing for a while

    3) A friend's elderly dad is managing a very long car trip ok

    I love reading the things that everyone is grateful for! I feel as though I am getting very good vibes :)

    Today I am grateful for:

    1) Today is the second last day for my partner's job. I am so excited for him to finish, he's been so much happier since handing in his resignation.

    2) That I finished 3 assignments on the weekend! It was stressful but now I'm feeling so much more relaxed.

    3) That I am able to spend so much time with my family. I really love them so much!

    Today I'm thankful for:

    - being able to have a shower

    - being able to get through a day's work

    - being able to make a decision that I hadn't been able to make for days by telling myself it's ok if it's not the perfect decision.

    1) My partner returned today having had to spend a few days away, both of us ( plus the menagerie) were delighted.

    2) It has been warm and dry enough for me to mow, sitting and listening to podcasts while mowing is soothing and productive

    3) I am enjoying the variety of music mentioned here on the Forum

    1. $$$ just found out I have won a scholarship - things have been really tight while I have been studying, and this will lighten my mental stress.

    2. Family harmony - I invited my family over for Easter lunch, and everyone was relaxed and got along, eating and sitting in the sun. It was nice.

    3. My pomegranate tree has produced it's first fruit. It is small, but I am proud nevertheless
