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’m thankful for the “someone” who took care of my baby; it gave me time to go and play some tennis.

I am grateful for the rain that feeds the trees and flowers.  I am grateful for a break in the rain so we can outside and play.

This is the best day of my life.

I’m happy for the company of a good friend.  We saw a heartbreaking play yesterday.  I’m glad we shared the experience together.

I’m grateful to my dog who got me out of the house for a beautiful sunny afternoon yesterday, despite my allergies.
I’m grateful that my son will have the privilege of choosing which university to attend.
I’m grateful for my son’s carpool - we all work together to make things work for each other.

I’m happy that my sister is coming to visit soon!
