    My favourite pair of shoes. They're old, dirty and falling apart but I love them so!

    The vet. I'm trying to switch my focus here. The stress of the cost near did me in, but... my cat got the treatment he needed to feel better (I think!).

    The tree I planted. It's name is Terry - may he grow big and strong :)

    Today is a testing day with the rising cases in Sydney so I am so glad I can reflect on what I am thankful for:

    1) I am very thankful that I live with my partner and family.

    2) I am thankful for all of our health

    3) I am thankful that I have security with my family while finances are tough

    I have gratitude for:

    I have had my 2nd Covid jab, though am suffering the side effects, still worth it:)

    I offered to do a task that I felt would give me satisfaction, and was given the go-ahead

    A friend who had lost their job popped in and we were able to laugh and forget the outside world for a few minutes.

    Great thread. Hello All. I joined last night and have been looking at several posts. The world is in a chaotic mess yet there are so many good beautiful things we all can be thankful for regardless of what situation, sorrow we may find ourselves in and can't see it. Am thankful for life. Am thankful for a warm bed. Am thankful for a tiny bit of sun today after those below zero temperatures. Have a good day everyone. Goose

    I feel something about not having to be thankful today.

    Just drained, I'll be thankful when I move further away from that feeling.

    Hi all,

    Today I'm thankful that:

    - Hungry Jack's has a vegetarian burger! I really missed affordable junk food options when I went vego, and now I finally have a fall back that actually has protein in it for those days when I'm kinda broke and too tired to cook.

    - That I've been managing to play video games and do creative things lately. Sorely needed.

    - That my partner and I got a useful reply from one of the marriage celebrant's we messaged. We tried a few and they mostly weren't very informative.

    Blue.
