I’m happy that I’m going to be with all my family on Christmas.

Got Gratitude? Want to share it with others?
Welcome to our community gratitude journal, open to all who’d like to express their thanks or share a happy thought.
Here’s how it works: every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.
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.
I am grateful for my wonderful grown kids and wonderful grandkids who are going to be as great as their kids. I just feel very blessed whenever I think about it.

I am grateful to be approaching my 3rd Christmas in sobriety. It is for the grace of my creator working through the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous that has made this possible.
I am grateful that after three years I have finally found a therapist that really seems to connect with my son who has Aspergers. After all he has been through I finally see him sharing his feelings and smiling!
I’m grateful for a wonderful loving husband, for a warm home, for food on the table and the opportunity to share whenever we can. I’m most grateful that I’m able to learn everyday.
I’m so grateful for finding the perfect play school for my daughter this year.
I am thankful for the making it every day. Barely hanging in there, but we are hanging in there. Thank you for every small break you send our way.
I’m grateful for freedom from active addiction for 7 1/2 years. Losing everything was a blessing, because it made room for all that I’m blessed with today, including the chance to be a kind and loving spouse and parent, a dependable employee, and hopefully next week a homeowner! The universe continues to conspire…

I am grateful for this blog. I really thought about Dr. Carter’s advice in the latest Raising Happiness post and it’s really helped me be a more pleasant host this week.
