When I have gotten into a funk or feel down about something, my daughter reminds me of making a Gratitude List....they do this in the AA groups too. We have so much to be grateful for and yet so many moan and groan about lack. I'll list a few and if anyone wants to add their gratitudes, that's good. A 55 yr old daughter and two growing adult grandkids, both college students and seeing some of the world in their college days. Making it to 81 soon and pretty darn good health, including hearing and eyesight. Walk but with a walker, due to OA issues and surgery mess. Nice cozy apt 1 long block from Pacific Ocean, that I can afford in this high rent district. Money to buy good food and the strength to stand in kitchen and cook. Good friends. Quality programming on NPR. A long list of good memories from a life well lived, some hard times but growth from those times. I know there is more but I'll stop at these for now.
