    Today I am grateful for:

    - time to myself to reflect and regroup

    - perfect weather in Adelaide today

    - lots of yummy leftovers from family Easter meal, so today I don't have to cook

    TO ECOMAMA: Thanks ecomama! I'm new here but I've noticed your posts and it seems despite having more than your fair share of life trash, you are a veritable warrior of support to others!! Well done

    Hello. Yesterday, I was thankful for being well enough to walk around my yard. Was able to concentrate enough to do some study. Felt satisfied with what I had accomplished. Thankful for Life itself. Thankful for many things. Thankful for the beautiful caring people on the beyond blue forums all doing their best to contribute to help each other. With kind regards.

    Hello Everyone. Today I'm thankful for having hot cups of tea. Being alive. Food to eat. A place to live in. A good book to read to distract myself from the negative influences around my local area. Have a happy day. With kind regards.

    - my sleepy furball's calm presence

    - My garden, it is smallish but gives me a lot of peace and satisfaction

    The man at the waste disposal site helped me unasked to unload a great many squashed cardboard boxes and newspapers, a task I was unequal to

    My partner unhesitatingly jumps in to help, even missing out on things in the process, to look after me.

    I'm starting to look back after the death of a close friend and take pleasure in some of the memories, reducing the feelings of loss.

    Good morning all, hope you are doing ok today.

    Today I am thankful for,

    - SLEEP and it's power of good (I often struggle with it, but last night slept 7 hours!!!!!)

    - HEALTH (three of my close family members are facing serious illness at the moment, and so I am more grateful than ever that my body is still strong)

    - THIS THREAD, thanks to the creator of this thread, I find the exercise useful, as it makes me sit and think about the positives. Even on days that have been a bit rubbish, it buoys me a little. Thanks
