Gratitude Journal: Celebrating Milestones

Got Gratitude?  Share it here! 

Welcome to our community gratitude journal, open to all who’d like to express their thanks or share a happy thought. 

I am grateful that our daughter Ella is a happy, healthy, loving and bright (although often mischievous!) little girl who loves to play, learn and laugh…don’t be fooled by her serious photo.

I am grateful for the rain today which really got the temperatures down.

I was glad to be able to get together with family to celebrate a nephew’s high-school graduation.  We had a great time laughing, eating, and visiting.

I am so happy that my cousin, who suffers from anxiety and depression, is so diligent about taking care of herself. 

I am so thankful that my twin grandsons, weighing around a pound and a half at birth, are now walking and are very healthy!  I am very thankful for their parents’ constant care and playful interaction.

I am grateful for the love and life of my Aunt Nancy. She gives so much of herself to others - and continues to teach by example. I’m so glad my kids have the chance to know her love.

I am grateful for weekends and time to spend with families to recharge.

I’m grateful for this morning. My friend Sue H. came to class in S. F. late but smiling from Berkeley.  She helped someone in need on the bus.  The driver stopped for her at her block even though it’s not a bus stop.

Hooray for cousins!  My daughter and I had a great time visiting family over the holiday weekend.

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.  We can always use more photos!

To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) or your favorite photo to . 

You can also contribute by commenting at the bottom of this post.  Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.
