Seems like a great topic for a thread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Here's a place to post things (people etc.) that you are grateful for <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/kiss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":kiss:"><br><br><br><br>
I am starting out with work-related things because I need to get off the computer and get to work!<br><br><br><br>
So:<br><br><br><br>
I am grateful I have so many great clients who appreciate me (and pay me so well!).<br><br><br><br>
I am grateful that I love all my jobs and get to work only when and with those people I choose.

i'm grateful for my sanity and happiness and health- having come through major depression and allergies and feeling vile in my teens, now when i feel a bit down or am having a bad day or my tummy hurts, etc, i can do it with a joyful perspective knowing that where i've been is a damn sight worse than where i am now and where i'm headed, and i can really see how far i've come, lol.<br><br><br><br>
i'm grateful for my man, who accepts and loves and supports me no matter how random i'm being (its even cute, apparently <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ! )- to have him as my 6 foot hulk of a rock to lean on and snuggle upto, and for my parents and family, whom i get on so much better with now i'm on another continent to them- being cared about and accepted by those around me means a great deal, and makes a lot of difference to my day to day life!<br><br><br><br>
i'm also really grateful that i grew up and continue to experience life in a part of the world where even when i'm broke, i have a standard of living that so many people in other countries don't- with access to food and education and medical care, and living under a government that doesn't oppress my every thought and movement.<br><br><br><br>
lots to be thankful for!

I'm grateful for parents who were (still are) loving and supportive and raised me to be a responsible, self-reliant adult, even though at the time I thought they were old-fashioned, strict and conservative.

I'm grateful for all the obvious things....my family, new in-laws!....friends. My job which I don't love as much as I used to but I am grateful I have a job. My home, humble and small as it is, at least I have a roof over my head. My hair, even though I have more bad hair days than good ones, at least I have hair. My face with each tiny new wrinkle that appears, at least I have a face and I am living long enough to get wrinkles!!!!
