I’m grateful for Grandma’s house and all the treasures therein. Who would have known that a bread box makes a perfect pretend oven?

I’m grateful I found this site.  As a “Far Away” Boomer Grandparent, I’m compiling some great ideas to share with my grandchildren

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be alive and well to support my daughter as she becomes a new mom. What a blessing to see a healthy and very loved baby come into the world!

I am grateful for my health.

I’m thankful for our peaceful backyard where I can go and sit, enjoying the beauty of nature.

I am grateful to work for a manager and company that allow me endless flexibility to work from home and take time out for school activities.

I am grateful that some of the tragedies in my life have turned into blessings many years down the road..sometimes we don’t know why bad things happen to good people but every so often you get the gift of seeing God’s hand in our destiny.

I’m grateful that the moms from daycare have a Mom’s Night Out scheduled soon!

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.
