I know my son is very thankful for his sister and for all the fun moments that he shares with her.

I am grateful for my friends who have helped me in a difficult, drawn-out decision process!

I am grateful to my inner voice, no matter how far I stray from my goals in life, it keeps on bringing me back to a state of bliss.

I am so very grateful for my son.


I am grateful for my children’s playfulness and silliness.  I am grateful for making time to talk with a friend on the phone.  I am grateful the weather is warming up.

I’m thankful for the way my husband runs the house since I am in school right now as well as working. Thank you!

I am sooo grateful for my wonderful parents who were able to take my son on a great Spring Break trip to San Diego because I had to stay at home and work.

I’m happy we booked tickets for our family reunion in September.  I can’t wait to see everyone.

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

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

We need photos! Email your favorite photo to .
