It would almost be easier to list things I'm not grateful for, but that would be a different thread. :P

I feel especially grateful for the life I live, nearly every aspect and extension of it, that it is "mine" and that I can live it in relation to everything else in the way I do, that I can be "me." I'm grateful for all of you, this Temple and all the Jedi in it, for doing the same. I'm grateful that I can be a part of that, however that is.

I'm grateful to have the friends and teachers and so on that I do, just people in general, to help make this journey interesting and fulfilling. Never a dull or lonely moment, and that counts for a lot.

Right now I'm really happy I have food and shelter. I know this may sound odd to many of you but I'm also grateful for a toilet that flushes(without adding water) and a toilet that I can sit down on(not a squatter). I really love having water that doesn't have to be boiled first, soft toilet paper, hot showers, showers that come from a pipe rather than buckets, and mattresses.

Here's my old toilet and shower

Im grateful for...well if I wrote it all down, it would be really huge. I'll try to shrink it:

1. I'm grateful for opportunities that seem to just fall into my lap at the right time without me even trying. I'm grateful to have great friends who care about me.
2. I'm grateful for my family, whom I don't get to see much, but I love dearly
3. I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn and for the progress I'm making as a Jedi. I think I have come a long way since May 3, 2012
4. I'm grateful for Maitre, who is teaching me the wonders of car wax (I'm serious :lol: ) and for my brothers and sisters who are there to provide support and a listening ear.
5. I'm grateful that this list is not exhaustive and I am happy for this thread

It got down to 20°f here this morning. We have central heat. We've been doing our best to use it as little as possible since we try to use a large-area space heater instead to help save money on our bills. Still, we're luckier than our neighbors who live in what is supposed to be a nicer home, but who doesn't have the luxury we get to have.

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.

Love the title lol.

I have something to be very thankful for. On 10 Nov 2014 my daughter was born. Long labor short, the doctor discovered something that could/should have been a major major problem that would have resulted in her death before she was born. What I thought was a nearly painless pregnancy should have been classified as a high risk.

:ohmy:
I think we can all be incredibly thankful that she was safely delivered. Nice to see you back too :)



Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

With Jediism. No one is coming to save you. You have to get off your ass and do it yourself - Me

Today I am grateful for supportive friends, and the friends who believe that I am capable of more than I expect from myself.

It might not be big or deep, but I'm grateful for the Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack. I downloaded it a few days ago and it has made me so happy that I've been listening to it for the last three days straight. lol We have to appreciate the little things, right?
