Got Gratitude? Share it here!

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

I am grateful for all this sharing of gratitude.
Thank you all.

I’m so grateful for my husband and daughter and friends.

I’m grateful for [Dr. Carter’s] presentation at the Learning and the Brain conference. The “free hugs” video brought tears to my eyes, and [her] insights, and encouragement brought a smile to my face.

I am grateful to be alive and well.

I am grateful that my parents love me.

For ten years six of us have been faithfully sharing our favorite books, sending the box from California to Florida to Minnesota to Texas to New Mexico and on again. It’s a specially good feeling to share favorite books with those you love and to read what your loved ones treasure. I am so grateful for these women.

I am grateful for the abundance in my life.
David Kennedy

I am grateful that I have eyes that not only allow me to see and enjoy the world in which we live but that I can see in full colour!

I’m happy that spring break is here!
Janine Kovac


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.
