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. 

Grateful for my happy children and also grateful that we had a very rare opportunity to escape a week of snow & ice storms in Ohio for 80 degree weather in Florida (which allowed us to spend lots of quality time together as a family).

i’m grateful for my “lil” sis, who is always so good at listening and giving upbeat thoughtful advice.  thank you!

I’m so happy I found my yo-yo!

I am grateful for all people who volunteer for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) so that children experiencing abuse and neglect in our country will have hope for a happy future.

Grateful for the many discoveries of wisdom that have been passed down through all the ages through all the precious teachers whose insights speak to people of all race, creed, gender, belief and who had the compassion to share their knowledge, understanding and skill with others.

I’m happy that my husband got recognized for a job well done.

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.

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.
