I am grateful that people find the courage to express their beliefs even at the risk of dismissal, ridicule, and harm.

I’m grateful for Parents Night Out! Yay! Date Night!

I am grateful for having enough food, a place to live and a healthy family.  While we are not rich we are SO fortunate compared to many many people in our world

I want to show the gratitude to my lovely mom who being a single mother has fulfilled our every wish and because of her I am here where one day I have thought off. So this is the time to say my loving and dear mom thanks.

I’m grateful to my brother and sister-in-law who have decided to take our daughter on a weekend trip with them. She really misses her cousins and is excited about the visit.

I’m so grateful my preschool granddaughter is able to visit us for several days.  She’s delightful and we’re so blessed.

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.
