This was on another forum and I thought I'd start it here, as its so nice to read what people are grateful for.

Mine are -

1 - I'm grateful I woke up this morning.
2 - Grateful for my bunny and the funny things she does, to keep me amused.
3 - Grateful for tea.
4 - Grateful I don't have to cook tonight.
5 - Grateful for the simple things.

What are you grateful for ......

I'm grateful that our trip to the coast for my grandson's funeral went smoothly.
I'm grateful that now I can, without guilt, block and unfriend my former granddaughter from my Facebook feed. (I've had more than enough of her drama).
I'm grateful that I got to hold my newest grandson who is still, after 11 days, in the NICU. He's beautiful!!
I'm grateful to my sister and her husband for offering us their guest room and were there to listen to some of my ranting about my idiot ex-daughter in law. :)

My new husband and new life. I never knew life could be so sweet again!
My son for getting his act together. And his new boyfriend, they seem happy together.
My daughter for doing well in her first semester of college. And keeping a level head on her shoulders.

Right here, silly!
I'm grateful for so many things that I'm sure I could fill up several books! But I'll make it as short as I can by listing my top 5:

I'm grateful for my faith and the grace therein that carries me through each day.
I'm grateful for my hubby who also doubles at being my best friend.
I'm grateful for my son for being the child I always dreamed of having but never thought I'd ever be able to have (he's my miracle child).
I'm grateful for good friends and my oftentimes crazy, dysfunctional family.
I'm grateful for having a roof over my head, clothes on my body, means of transportation, and good food on the table.

Fantastic idea bringing this here Relle, thank you.

Today I'm feel supremely extra grateful - overjoyed in fact.

1. I successfully finished the lab requirement for this semester of Biology/chemistry, while only missing one point. I've proven to myself that at this age, I can go back to college, I can still learn and I can still work hard!

2. I too have so many friends who have made so much possible in my life. It hasn't been an easy life, but the right people have entered my world when I needed them; I had just enough support to provide the energy I needed to continue to fight for myself.

3. The hard lessons and the suffering; I've overcome a very abusive background and that has given me the compassion to encourage and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.

4. I am grateful to live in America, in a safe area. Lately I've heard so many people knocking Obama and politics and whatever. Sure there's plenty of problems here, but I'll take it over any other place. I love to talk to people from other countries, and I volunteer with Sudanese immigrants and they talk of constant fear, persecution, hunger, illness, etc.
My precious girl snuggles with me at night and we don't hear bombs drop or soldiers pounding on doors. It's legal and free for her to attend school. She doesn't have to walk 6 miles each way for fresh water. She has nutritious food, a good doctor, plenty of resources to engage her curious mind and is not expected to be married off when she's 12.

5. Sorry - I've been very serious. So on a lighter note...I'm grateful for the tv channel that plays very old black and white comedies like the Burns and Allen show, Honeymooners and Jack Benny. And I'm also grateful for McConnell's peppermint ice cream. (Waaayyy too grateful!)

Today, I'm grateful for:

Strong coffee
Beasties underfoot that think I'm the best thing since Betty White
Grilled cheese sandwiches and sliced apples
Getting to play on an old technology at work that I've missed
family and friends coming over
Ability to take care of them and all the aligning of circumstance in my life that's enabled that
Living in vacationland. Today I drove past snow covered peaks on the way to pickup takeout Indian food
Spicy chicken korma & garlic naan
BBC shows on YouTube
A couple of adorable handmade Scandinavian gnomes I ordered from etsy that arrived today
A comfy bed

I'm grateful for...

... the people who have my back when the poop hits the oscillator
... that I have a resourceful nature and can find solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems
... that my kids and family are whole, hardy, and well
... that my philosophy of living an honest life yields the reward of honest help when I need it
... that when I pray, I get answers, even if they aren't necessarily what I was expected

Today, I am happy I could sleep in my own bed. As much as I appreciate seeing family, I sleep best in my own bed.

I'm grateful for the cup of coffee that was waiting for me when I got up out of that bed.

I'm thankful I took today off, giving me a 3 day weekend after a sometimes difficult week.

I'm thankful for a perfect late fall morning - it's a touch frosty, but very peaceful out there right now and although it's late autumn/early winter and everything is that season's shade of dying, the subdued light is giving everything a sharpness and clarity that almost hurts the eyes. It's my favourite kind of morning.

I'm thankful for good friends.... those nearby and those I haven't seen in many years but are showing they truly care.

Grateful I woke up this morning instead of "coming to".
Grateful that today makes 16 years in a row of waking up. Every day.
Grateful that there is a God and it's not me.
Grateful that my loving wife has been here for the last 43 years.

More tomorrow.

Right here, silly!
I'm thankful for getTV. During the whole month of December they are showing all the old Christmas variety show specials that originally aired in the '60's and '70's. I recorded the Andy Williams Christmas special and watched it last night. I was just a tiny tot when it first aired, but it brought back lots of wonderful, happy memories for me (it just wasn't Christmas without Andy Williams in our household, lol). Today they are repeating Andy's special, and also showing Judy Garland's, Bing Crosby's, and also Merv Griffin's. Hey- next Wednesday they are showing Sonny and Cher's! WooHoo! I'm such a sucker for old shows.
