    This thread I hope will be ongoing. Each day you come to this discussion board, write out the things you are grateful for. Write out things that you already have, and things that you want to have. If there is something you are worried about, write about it as if the problem is already solved. It can be as small as "Im am grateful that I have time to paint my toenails" or as large as.....well, whatever is most pressing in your life. I'll reply and start my list........

    I have this posted on my mirror in my bathroom. I repeat it to myself every day:
    I am Grateful for

    My education, literacy, and open-mindedness

    My home; it is the perfect size for my family and it is safe.

    My freedom, and my ability to choose my life’s path.

    My family, they are loving and healthy and happy.

    My car, it is safe, and roomy and reliable.

    My dogs, they are loyal, and loving and protective.

    My pantry, it always has food.

    My business, it is growing every day to bring me the
    financial freedom I am ready to experience.

    My dishwasher, washer, and dryer, they help me take care of my family.

    My health. I am happy, healthy, and fit at my perfect weight.


    The following is what I am allowing for:
    I am grateful for my coffee business.
    I am grateful that is sustains our family, and allows us more time to be together and enjoy each other.
    I am grateful that through my business I am able to travel the world connecting with small independant coffee farms, connecting them with TransFair and helping them to build better lives for their families.
    I am grateful for my healthy, happy family. We only get sick enough to build our bodies stronger.
    I am grateful for my ability to share my passion of natural living with the world.
    I am grateful that we have the environmentally friendly home we want, the hybrid/flex fuel cars we want, and the toys that my husband and boys enjoy.
    I am grateful that there is plenty for everyone, and abundance is available for all who ask.

    That is some great list Jenn.

    I am thankful that I am alive today-that I was able to endure another crazy lunch at work and prosper with good tips.
    I am thankful for a dh who patiently walks this walk with me.

    Thankful for the good health of my family.

    Thankful for my house, although very small and on a hill, I own it with a very small mortgage payment.

    Thankful that we never bounce a check

    Thankful that the bills are always paid even if barely on time.

    Thankful for my grandchildren

    Thankful for vehicles and the ability my husband has to fix them

    Thankful for amitys and the sisterhood we share.

    Thankful my daughter obtained her GED before her baby is born.

    Thankful for today.

    I am thankful for:

    my family, who loves each other so much.

    my friends, who are always in my mind.

    my niece, who is visiting us for a few days.

    our vehicle, which runs well and is roomy enough for our entire family.

    the money my dh makes, which is more than enough to give to others, sustain our family, and allow for wants and desires.

    living in the USA and having a dh who is a soldier who loves his country.

    my large washing machine that can wash all of the sheets at once! :lol:

    my refirgerator that is large and always full of healthy food.

    my body, it is everything it should be - sexy to my dh, nourishing and comforting to my children, and healthy for me.


    These are what I am allowing for:

    I am grateful for:
    *our safe, uneventful trip to Hawaii.
    *our vehicle arriving safely in Hawaii shortly after we do.
    *our new home in Hawaii, because it has more than enough room for our family.
    *our adopted baby.
    *an abundance of money, that we can give to others, sustain our family, and also provide for wats and desires.
    *my body in a swimsuit looks pretty dang good - so nice on the beaches of Hawaii! :)

    I am grateful for my supportive and loving husband and amazing and extraordinary children. I am grateful for the my children's love and for all they teach me each day. I am grateful that everyone is playing nicely so that I can sit here and read and type this.

    I am grateful that my family and I are alive and healthy. For our beautiful home. For dh's good job.

    I am grateful that I have parents and in-laws that love and help us. That my boys have amazing teachers. That a nice woman cleans my house every two weeks.

    I am grateful that I have lots of tall trees that are green again. I am grateful for all of the abundance in my life and am open to even greater health, growth, knowledge and material wealth.

    I am grateful for my beautiful, healthy boys, they are exactly the children I always dreamed of.

    I am grateful for my husband. He is loving, handsome, supportive, and my best friend. He is the husband I always dreamed of.

    I am grateful for my home. It is in one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is spacious and inexpensive and a good place to live. I have the best well water.

    I am grateful for my business. It gives me balance in my life. I am grateful for my partner who takes care of my business so that I can be a stay at home mother. I am grateful that at every stage the right solution is found to run the business. And I'm especially grateful for my wonderful customers who are really what the business is all about.

    I have so much more but I am also grateful that I have a lovely roast to put in the crockpot for dinner, two boys to love and play with and a business that is waiting for me to participate and a vendor that I am looking forward to visiting.

    Off to have more of a great day!

    That deserves a cucumber dance!~ LOL

    Today I am grateful the my oldest can get himself on the bus in the mornings when we have early appointments to get to.

    Today I am grateful for my wonderful sweet husband who bought me a gift certificate to the spa.....I definately manifested that one, as I made plans w/ my girls on Thursday to go to the spa next Teusday, not knowing where the money would come from!

    Today I am grateful that we have made it through one more payday without stress and fighting.

    I am also grateful for my husband's healthy outcome from his surgery at the end of the month.

    I'm thankful for my husband who puts up with me as I grow and learn to be pleasant while caring for a healing boy.

    And, I'm thankful beyond words that we seem to have come up with a way to get Lauren to pleasantly eat her vegetables.

    I am grateful for the morning commute to work in which I can speak to the divine about all that I am thankful for and need.
    It is the only quiet time I get:)

    I am thankful for fresh food. I gave myself permission to go wild in the produce section last night and it is so beautiful and delicious and I feel so good to be taking care of my body and my family.

    I am thankful for flylady, home decorating shows and EFT, which have all helped me in my work to reclaim my home. I got my dinning room totally in order and decorated and it is such a source of joy and inspiration for me.

    I am thankful for work, the book Richest Man in Babylon and my partner. I have my one day a week of being on my own and I am looking forward to enjoying working hard and being free in more ways than one.

    I am thankful for my husband. He makes so much possible and brings me such joy. And thankful for my little boys. I love the way that when they are sweaty, they smell like syrup. I love their smiles and laughs and their love for each other.

    So much to be thankful for. Thankful for the day and the incredible number of facets to be grateful for!

    I am grateful for a rainy Saturday, with children at the grandparents' house, when I got to spend a whole day organizing my house -- AFTER sleeping in :butterfly

    And for a beautiful Sunday and Monday with my family and friends -- at my favorite place.
