    I have always been amazed by the kindness of strangers.

    To pay that forward, the message of love and hope, little here, a little there and always back at you my friends.

    It is like that saying, when you knew better, you did better.

    Thank you to each and every one of you for being perfect mirrors – by showing me what I am not, yet what is possible.

    There are a few people that I need to thank more regularly, some are in my life currently and some are not. But I’m sad to say, the emotions that this question raised are self pity, and a dash of bitterness. The feeling of being unsupported and alone in this life is strong and seems to be my tendency. Gratitude is something I’m practicing to counteract and balance these emotions.

    I would like to thank all those people who are sick or have great problems in their lives and yet give their best to stay positive, loving and grateful. They are great teachers and show that it is possible.
    Thank you !

    First, to the birds that woke me this morning with their beautiful songs. Then to those that grew the beans, processed the coffee I am now drinking, and to my body for being able to move into another day. To those who made the dishes I dearly love and bring me joy every day to use….to the earth, for your loving support of us all. To my physical therapists, for helping me and my body to heal.
    And to this website, to help remind me what I am grateful for today….thank you!

      Thank you Mary Pat, your words have turned on my gratitude switch. Lately, I have been writing down my response to the question, before reading others. Just reading your response and the others is such a gift. THANK YOU 🙏

      Thank YOU, Mary Pat! There were 2 little birds chirping and fluttering on my balcony moments ago – Thank you for reminding me that they’re worthy of my Thanks 🙂
      Thank you, too, Mary Pat, for reminding me of my gratitude to my physical therapists – and to those who made the mugs and dishes I use and love 🙂

    It is to so many, to my dear sister and my niece, to the people who without words offer daily support through their work, to the dear ones providing food which is so abundantly available and so many more kindred people, often giving all their heart into what they do. Especially a big thank you is longing to be expressed towards you who share here and all the dear people of the Gratefulness-team for working in the background for making this site the very precious one that it is. And a big thank you is longing to be expressed towards Jack Kornfield, who was so kind to gift us with his virtual presence and heartfelt teachings a few days ago during the currently ongoing e-course. It was deeply touching to listen to him and take to heart what he shared. So thank you dearly for your being there for us, dear Jack Kornfield, and as well thank you such a lot to you, dear Gratefulness- team for inviting him and so offering the possibility to listen to his teachings, and for all your precious work for all of us.

    I’ve talked about it with my boss, but I don’t think I’ve properly thanked her, which I will. But thank you to her for understanding and supporting the decision I made to leave my position. I’m not leaving the store, just demoting myself to a role that has more of a set schedule, which will allow me to focus more on my yoga teacher training. It was a tough decision, as I like being in leadership, but I also like my personal life and being able to grow outside of work as well. So a big thank you to Liz for allowing me to go into the open position that I’m actually perfect for other than the one I’m in now 🙂

    “Thank you,” is probably the most frequently used phrase by me after the word, “Hello.” When honestly stated, “thank you” opens doors, softens hearts, and begs the offering of another phrase, “See you soon!”
    And while we’re on the topic, thank you to the Gratefulness team and organization that makes this site and all of its programs possible. And thank you to my friends here, who contribute regularly here with heart and spirit day after day. I treasure you all in my life.
