We are happy that our cat and dog have finally learned to like each other as much as we like them.
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—we’ll pick out a few favorites for next week’s posting. 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.
My daughter Shayla and I walked to the Carnegie Public Library on Saturday only to find it was closed. So instead, we sat in the park, talked, played in the grass and watched the sky, played hangman and laughed a lot. Shayla did about 1000 cartwheels. We then walked to Dairy Queen for some treats. I was so happy with that time together.

The dryer quit drying, the printer developed a permanent error, and the dishwasher caught on fire. I am desperately grateful that we are able to deal with it all financially. We are very lucky.

My brother-in-law has cancer. He’s had surgery where parts of several organs where removed. He’s in post-op recovery and will soon be in more treatments. My sister said the dogs are on their best behavior and a great comfort to him. The puppy’s calm; the little one licks his elbow; the old dog loves his cozy electric blanket. So much love and assistance!

I am happy that, when my two year old fell off the climbing thing at the playground (onto sand) and cut the inside of his lip with his teeth on Saturday, he was already on antibiotics for his ear infection, so at least we don’t have to worry about his mouth getting infected. We can just worry about climbing.

Thank you. These wonderful thoughts provide a happy and up-beat start to my day.
