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.

I’m grateful that a mom in my daughter’s kindergarten class helped them make an altarcito for the Day of the Dead. We are still processing Grandpa’s passing a few months ago and this gave us a way to remember him and honor him.

I am grateful that my son is optimistic and positive — that almost every day he tells me that school was “great” and that a few simple pleasures will lead him to declare that he had the “best day ever.”

Today I am thankful for those who give a little in order to help many.

I am grateful that there happened to be men walking by my house this morning just as I had noticed a squirrel had passed away on my lawn, they had a shovel and were happy to assist me

I’m grateful that my son likes to wash his hands. It’s one less thing I have to ask him to do.

Today I found myself in a neighborhood with an original Carnegie library. It’s a small branch. Beautiful, spacious ceilings. I am grateful for libraries.

I am grateful (very grateful) that this time of year encourages us to remember those who are no longer with us; with gratitude, I think of my father, and smile.

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 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 their age.
