    - My son and his hugs.

    - The fact that it's the weekend after tomorrow.

    - I am currently at peace with everything that's happening at the moment.

    Gratitude has played an extra special role in today after hearing of the loss of a close friend............today I'm grateful:

    - That I can deal with painful news without picking up a drink or drug

    - I've been able to reflect on the good times and memories

    - To have had someone so special in my life

    Hi everyone,

    Time for some gratefulness to end the weekend on a positive note and hopefully begin the week ahead with a positive mindset. :D

    3 things I'm grateful for:

    1. Sharing the living abroad experience with my hilarious little brother
    2. The beautiful park around my home being my lockdown sanity
    3. The journal I've been keeping since 2016 helping me have important realisations about myself

    What are 3 things you're grateful for? @PnorkelPW @ScorpionPW @Nugnug @ATG @Spyrina @apples123 @Dat_Guy @chasityhd2 @Becoming cynical @BonsaiBeginner @WildeReformed @EtherealAngel111 @epiphanyflower @White Dove @OceanSky @initae89 @Plant_lover @UltraViolet @f00lish04

    I am grateful that I have a reliable car to take me to the beach for a much needed ocean swim.
    I am grateful to have a daughter who has outgrown the teenage embarrassment at spending time in public with mum!
    I am grateful to have access to nutritious fresh food everyday and being able to create healthy delicious meals.

    Great to hear about the benefits of your journal @Peace Dove 8-)

    Three things I’m grateful for:

    - Having this forum to remind me to be grateful at least twice per week

    - The ability to laugh at myself after buying the world’s biggest beanbag in a moment of madness with online shopping

    - People who have checked in this week to see how I’m doing

    I love reading your gratitude lists @Peace Dove, @PnorkelPW, @Runz and @BonsaiBeginner.

    I want to know more about this bean bag, sounds enticing :lol:

    - That I've been able to clear a big debt that was hanging over my head.

    - That some of my favorite shows have new seasons coming out (I know this seems sad but what can I say, lockdown life :roll:)

    - That I just got new bamboo sheets which are like sleeping in a bed of the gods :D

    Thanks @PnorkelPW, it really is....I've actually been eyeing Ozark off for a while but haven't watched it yet. Would you recommend?

    That's so great you've got a 5 day weekend, time to restore and replenish I say!
