Today I am grateful for the following (not an exclusive list!)

- a job where I'm treated like an individual, not a 'drone' to churn out work
- a fiance who can solve many things with a hug
- Jestor, who gives sage advice to my rants :)
- the many other members of TOTJO that I talk to and are the reason I come here
- that my 'worry' threshold has a release valve that lets me sort stuff out before I have a complete meltdown
- my friends, who put up with far much more from life than they deserve.

food, my dog, my kids, a pretty functional body all things considered, a nearly as functional mind. a place to sleep out of the cold or burning hot. not getting shot at or mortared.

Today I am grateful for, among many many things: sunshine, Anonymous 4 and their beautiful Gregorian chants, my cats, my husband, the quilt I got for my wedding and all that it represents. I am also extremely grateful to be a Jedi, and be part of our wider community.

I love winter holidays; the days getting darker is a perfect opportunity for reflection.

Although I'm not the biggest fan of the fact that I've always been very skinny, I am grateful for my naturally astronomical metabolism, and overall health regardless. I love being light on my feet. It goes well with my learning how to be light in heart and lean in my thinking (even if both of those aren't constants, after all its probably not recommended that they are).

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

My supportive family. They always do so much for me, even though my health is not great. :)

I'm grateful that, even though it's cold outside, I have ways to stay warm in here. That's...really big, actually.

I'm also grateful I just got the title of this thread. lol

Being able to go for walks again.
It's been too cold for the last week and I've really missed them.
Sunshine and fresh air - cold, fresh air.
