    Love reading your gratitude list @Judas, glad you're feeling better and it's great to see such simple things on the list.

    - Being able to be present to support my son through a difficult couple of days and ending up in a really good place with him tonight

    - Having such a supportive girlfriend

    - Being able to do something that I really love for work and that things are back face to face

    Good morning everyone and happy Saturday! I hope it's as lovely and sunny where you all are as it is here :)

    Today I want us all to reflect on what we are grateful for!

    1. My cat, she's an old girl but she's like my best friend. She has the best personality and spending time with her just makes me feel great!

    2. The fact that it feels like spring is just around the corner, I have some yellow wattle outside my bedroom window and it gives me such a calm feeling in the morning knowing the cold is slowly coming to an end :)

    3. One of my beautiful friends who has been super supportive this week while I've had things going on, she's really held space for me and allowed me to voice some stresses without feeling silenced or judged!

    So how about everyone else? @PnorkelPW @ScorpionPW @Faith100 @Toooldforthis @MisUnderstood2 @Anonymous_Sauce @oldpunk66 @Starlee @Taraj25

    I am sooo happy it's slowly starting to warm up @Lhiver, it's so nice to hear about the fact that you've got such a supportive friend. I have a couple of friends like that and I cherish them dearly, connections like that are quite rare in my experience.

    Today I'm grateful for...

    - My son being so well behaved tonight and us having such a lovely time together

    - Being so close to being debt free

    - A short work week this week

    Thanks for the tag @lhiver...............I'd love to have a pet but I'm just not home enough to be fair to it

    @ScorpionPW being debt free is an amazing feeling............I hope it's soon for you


    Three things I'm grateful for are:

    - daylight savings being just around the corner

    - a month ahead involving some time off, some time at a conference, and some much needed reset time

    - Being reminded to be a kid sometimes by my daughter

    Thanks for the tag @Lhiver

    Three things I’m grateful for…

    1. My kids - every single day.
    They have been my strength & support before and after leaving my husband this year. We’ve all been through a lot with alcoholic ex husband, but they always make sure I’m ok. 🙏

    2. Afterpay! Haha
    Having moved out of the family home with the kids I had to start from scratch. Living week to week means very little budget for anything.

    3. Being able to live & love life again! ☀️ ❤️
    Being able to find joy in the small things. Grateful for spring to be here too 🌸

    @Starlee It's great to hear from you! You've been through so much this year but your strength truly is shining through! How do you feel settling into this new chapter of your life?


    It sounds like your kids have really been a rock for you, and I agree spring being in the air really does make a difference! It gives everything a bit of hope :)
