Welcome to our community gratitude journal, open to all who’d like to express their thanks or share a happy thought.

I’m grateful that our twins’ hearing tested out ok and that they do not have hearing loss as was previously suspected.

I’m thankful for the gorgeous weather where I live.  I want to be more appreciative of it.

I am grateful that my little girl is learning to read and that she is loving the process.  I’m also grateful that we’re about to go on vacation to Mexico.  We both need the break!

I am grateful I live in a community with cooperative neighbors and that my kids are happy and healthy

I’m grateful for kind and understanding downstairs neighbors when it comes to noisy upstairs toddlers!

I am thankful to the universe for helping me survive financially through these tough times. Each time I have a crisis something changes to make it possible to overcome the hurdle

I am grateful to be alive and well.

I’m grateful for a husband who never blames. He inspires me to “focus on being the right partner.”

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week. 

To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) or your favorite photo to Janine at janinek@berkeley.edu

You can also contribute by commenting at the bottom of this post.  Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.
