I'm grateful for Chip. Not my brother, Chip, but the REI clerk named Chip. He solved so many issues I've been fighting with my new Fitbit. I was really bummed! Now it syncs and I love it. The days and days of constant downpour in CA sto... Read more

I'm grateful for a lovely day driving through beautiful green, green, green rolling hills with black angus cows for contrast. Endless days of rain did the work. I'm grateful for the very, very, very hard-working people bending over in deep, thic... Read more

I offered to contact my high school classmates to plan a milestone reunion this year. (No, I'm NOT going to tell you how many years it's been since graduation. I'd faint on the floor if I say that number out loud! Gasp!) I grew up on ... Read more

I am grateful to live in a culture that is friendly with strangers. It's OK here to start up a conversation with someone next to you in the grocery line. I had a hard time finding an appropriate birthday card for my son whose heart is broken. Th... Read more

It's wonderful to live (temporarily) in a place where people can express their concerns in a positive, peaceful, educational way. Yesterday I stood on "Peace Corner" with about 60 others where residents have expressed their hopes for decades. ... Read more

Wow..I'm so far behind. It's a good example of my current life. And I have so much for which to be thankful, but am a bit overwhelmed and forgetful. So today, I'm grateful for a long walk by myself above the ocean with high tide and the wat... Read more

Today started at 4:40 am when I awakened with tears over a stressful situation which I can't control. DH prepared pancakes (a treat!) and we watched the beautiful Rose Parade --and annual tradition for us. As we watched, I felt calm seeing ... Read more

Returned from a 3 month trip away from from home. Only gained 1#, but somehow my body "grew". So I started a determined routine of eating well and exercising every day. I'm not strong enough yet for the tough classes at gym. I live in a communit... Read more
