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

We need photos! Send them to janinek@berkeley.edu.

I am grateful for my friend Colleen, who pointed out that the flowering trees on our campus remind her of…ballerinas!  What a lovely image.

I am grateful for the times my grown daughter calls and just wants to talk.
Linda

I am happy sitting at my home in the morning and drinking a coffee. And reading abaout happiness.

When I broke my middle finger, I realized how marvelously our hands have been made: my other fingers so readily came to my aid. Today I resolve to be grateful for that which I take for granted.

I’m grateful this website is available for education, especially when curiosity strikes my mind.

So grateful for my daughter’s visit so we can fight our way back from hard times. Grateful for fortitude, returning health and graduation!

I’m thankful for this site where participants teach each other an attitude of gratitude.  When we look for the good in our lives, the “other stuff” pales in importance and in getting us down.
Phoebe

I’m grateful for a relaxing night at home.
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.
