    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    I know most of us aren't feeling very good right now but I have to put this out there because I had started it what in August? I think its so important to remember even the small things we're thankful for!

    I'm grateful that all of you wonderful women are fighting tooth and nail to stay here. To do the very best you can do! and use whatever way you can possibly survive what you need to survive you are doing! Kudos and hats off to all of you wonderful women!

    I'm grateful everyone who is here on this forum I consider my friend.

    I'm grateful that its autumn and what a beautiful word that is autumn!
    I like wearing snuggly clothes and being in long sleeves so I can hides my scars and Maybe just Maybe by next summer most of the redness and big raised ones will be gone if i keep massaging everyday.

    I'm grateful I'm doing ok! Just tired!

    I am greatful that they fixed the power and I can get back to blogging. I have missed writing this week.

    I am greatful that this board is here for all of us to come and be heard.

    And I am greatful for colossal sized olives so I can still wear them on my fingers no matter how old I get.

    I'm beyond stressed out and not doing super great right now but there is something I am thankful for.

    I am thankful for my almost 2 year old who is always trying to "help mama", as she says, and as a result does funny things like grabs a mop, dips it in the dog water dish, and starts mopping the floor. Love her so much!

    I'm grateful we had such a beautiful summer and early fall. The weather is cool and overcast today but that's the first time since early July. It's been a time filled with getting up close and personal with nature, sometimes alone, sometimes with good friends and/or family.

    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    I was hoping I could slip that by without anyone noticing I didn't put down anything I was grateful for...

    I'm having a lot of trouble feeling grateful for anything right now.

    ******MAY TRIGGER A DRINKER*****************

    I spent last weekend at my brother's where my sil kept bringing out pieces of her apple/brandy cake raving about how good it was. I wonder if I were diabetic instead of alcoholic if she'd have done the same. She makes a point of drinking a glass of wine whenever I'm there, even though I know she rarely drinks.

    My thermostat isn't working so my furnace isn't coming on - it's supposed to be 30 degrees tonight. My landlord is replacing it tomorrow.

    I just feel like I'm stuck in the mud, not moving forward at all.

    After all that, I guess I'm grateful that I have food to eat.
    lovely_lemon_tree replied to Kate_Te's response:

    You have a roof over your head, and a responsive landlord. You have blankets to bundle up in. And you have your kit-cats to keep you company. Right?

    I'm sorry you're so down.

    nope didn't trigger me kate te
    The whole reason i started a gratitude list in the very beginning is so we could see we all have something to be thankf ul for no matter how small.

    i'm sorry you're struggling. me too. after doing so well.
    hmpffffffffffffffff. good thing i'm getting sleepy.

    i hope you stay warm and if its not warm make your landlord put you up in a hotel! you shouldn't have to be uncomfortable because he's to cheap to pay ot for the furnace'/boiler to be fixed/replaced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
