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.

If there’s one month during which we practice gratitude, it’s November! Tell us! How do you cultivate gratitude in your home?

I’m grateful for my children’s unfiltered creativity and imagination.  Every day they surprise me with what they make using paper, crayons, tape and string.

I like popcorn. Thank you!
Michael, age 2

I’m grateful for work, even volunteer tasks and chores around the house.  Work makes me feel connected and needed and just plain helpful.
Texas Grandma

I’m grateful my niece who is 60 has stopped smoking! Nearing 100 days!
Proud Auntie

I’m happy that my daughter’s school will celebrate the Day of the Dead with an authentic Dia del los Muertos altar. She is so young and trying to make sense of Grandpa who left us recently. I love that we have a way to remember and celebrate our loved ones who have passed on.

I am grateful I can pursue a higher education.

I’m grateful that this journal is going on its third year! Thank you to everyone who reads, reposts, and shares your gratitudes.
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 gratitudes 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.
