I got this idea from one of the girls on the SH board... she puts up a list of things she is grateful for. I think, that in our darkest times, it's important to be grateful for things in our life. Anyone want to join me?

I am grateful for my attorney.

I am grateful for my cat, Savannah, who slept in bed with me this morning.

I am grateful that I have a team of health professionals who care for me.

I am grateful that yesterday was payday.

We must be the change we wish to see in the world. -- Mahatma Ghandi

Hi LLT, good idea.

I'm grateful for my faith that keeps me going even when I want to give up.

I'm grateful for the people I love, no matter how far away they may be.

I'm grateful for my rabbit, Foxy, who is ornery and keeps things interesting.

I'm grateful for art, whatever form it takes, and that it helps me relax.

Anyone else?
Where there is shadow, there is light.

I agree. It's always good to remember our blessings; it helps us to not give up.

I have to echo Rose on that first one - Quite frankly I wouldn't have bothered living this long without my faith in God and knowing that some day He will wipe away all tears from our eyes.

And I, too, am very grateful for my T. I would be totally lost without him at this point in my life.

And I also have to add my pets because they make me get up and function even when I'm overwhelmed, and they keep me from totally caving in.

Grateful for a roof over my head, working heat, running water.

Grateful for the Internet that connects me to others who understand that part of me (and grateful to them - you!) and for a couple of close friends who also understand.

Anyone else?
