    I AM grateful for the cappuccino to start my working day

    I AM grateful for my busy day at work yesterday
    I AM grateful for the treasure of a quotation that was in my e-mails yesterday –

    I AM very grateful for the BFO in the middle of the night that let me remember what it was that I had changed my password to yesterday – and forgot to write down

    I AM grateful for the oh so soft sprinkle of rain on my walk to the train

    I AM so very, very grateful I am part of this chain and the discipline it engenders

    I AM very grateful to this chain for the influence it had on my thoughts and demeanour last night

    I AM very grateful that I was severely challenged to come up with all the positives in a sea of impatient, angry, negative people and events occurring over which I had no control

    I AM grateful my well practised patience, already finely honed travelling on public transport, stood me in good stead last night

    I AM grateful to get home safely after a very long journey to get there….. and in perfect time to see the item on Compass I wanted to see

    I AM very, very grateful for the life work of Peter Andrews at great personal sacrifice for what he believes in and that the scientific examination of the results are vindicating his passion and his work, showing that one person really can make a huge difference and be such a shining beacon of hope for the environment and the need to battle bureaucracy to ensure what is right

    I AM grateful that we had only to wait threequarters of an hour to get on a bus at Caulfield when others had waited over two hours

    I AM grateful my knees held up OK for that time waiting for the bus

    I AM grateful that it was only raining very lightly on the thousands of people waiting for the buses

    I AM grateful for the Connex man who stopped several young people pushing to get onto the bus, insisting they let me go first

    I AM grateful I got a seat on the bus for the one hour journey from Caulfield to Moorabbin through so many different streets, views, sights on the way
    and for the time to find these positive thoughts

    I AM grateful that there was a seat for me on the packed train from there to Bonbeach and still just a light sprinkle of rain on my walk home from there (about 8 pm – only one and a half hours late)

    I AM grateful for that brisk walk home after being confined to crowded seats and masses of people

    I AM grateful it was Thursday night and not the night before as it would have meant missing seeing Oprah and missing out on the distinctions I got from that programme

    I AM extremely grateful interruptions and hold-ups like last night are so infrequent

    I AM grateful my freezer held options for a quick meal preparation after all that delay

    I AM grateful the police had patience and were able to resolve the issue safely later in the night after five and a half hours of negotiation

    I AM very grateful Susie made it safely to Melbourne

    I AM grateful to have seen Jerry (previously chef where I mainly get breakfast) again on my way to the station and that he was so delighted to see me again

    I AM grateful I can express my feelings on paper when circumstances prevent me from saying in person

    I AM grateful I can love unconditionally

    I AM grateful I have music I can share

    I AM grateful I have inspirational books I can loan

    I AM grateful for a good deep sleep and waking up early

    I AM grateful for a lovely hot shower and being able to have a big choice of clothes to wear today

    I AM grateful for the light rain on my walk to the train and for the umbrella to keep it off my head and shoulders

    I AM extremely grateful for all the rain that has fallen in the catchments (not at my place though) and for all the rain we are about to receive

    I AM grateful there was still one vacant seat on the earlier train this morning

    I AM grateful the train came into Flinders Street on the most inconvenient platform and that in taking a different walk to work brought me past Jesters.

    I AM grateful for LoAn’s delighted greeting and for the lovely cappuccino she made for me to go with the Morning Glory

    I am grateful for the cheery greetings from my workmates

    I AM grateful to find out that Paul had got home safely to Mt Martha at 8:30pm last night and that Martin and Morgana had been very lucky in that they had taken their car to Caulfield Station so weren’t held up

    I AM grateful that I have a workplace to come to, for the lovely flowers on my desk and for the tasks and challenges ahead for the day

    I AM very grateful Scott has talked to Elizabeth and that he is OK

    I AM very grateful for Elizabeth’s kind comments and that my lists mean something to others as well

    I AM grateful Denise was able to overcome her challenges to get to the city yesterday afternoon

    I AM grateful I could finish work and we could go have coffee, something to eat and drink before taking the tram to the venue

    I AM grateful our timing was so good we didn’t have to wait very long to get the tickets, then for the doors to open, and for being smart enough to take the empty side aisle to end up with a front row seat… a very definite bonus in a crowd of more than 1000 people, many of whom ended up either standing around the walls or sitting on the floor around the stage area.

    I AM really, really grateful I acted on the invitation to obtain the tickets for the event as soon as it arrived in my e-mail and that I was able to invite a guest to attend with me

    I AM really, really grateful for the life work of Dr John Demartini, for his passion and especially for his gift of being such an informative and entertaining speaker

    I AM grateful for the clarity of the distinctions I got from his presentation and will put into practice.

    I AM grateful that Denise also considered the presentation really great and well worth having made the long journey from Yarram to attend

    I AM grateful for the ease and safety of our journey home, and that the car was ready waiting at the station and we didn’t need to walk in the very cold blustery wind

    I AM grateful for warmth of my home and for the interval of conviviality we enjoyed before retiring for the night

    I AM grateful for the fine morning and the brisk walk to the station.

    I AM grateful to have been able to see the sea with the whitecaps on such a vivid navy colour

    I AM grateful for the cooked breakfast we enjoyed together and to Denise for suggesting it and shouting (and to Ange for the very good price and great coffee)

    I AM grateful for the flexibility for me to still be on time for work regardless of it being somewhat later than usual

    I AM grateful for the comment from a workmate who had seen Denise and I having breakfast that led to me finding out that another workmate, George, is also very interested in and working with the teachings of The Secret

    I AM grateful that I am able to provide him with the details of this website (and to 4 others of my friends via e-mail yesterday) and also the other inspirational newsletters and daily affirmations I subscribe to

    I AM grateful that Paul has introduced me to the Audio CD’s of The Secret as well.

    I AM grateful for a happy day at work yesterday… in spite of finding out that the spreadsheet I had spent a lot of time updating and expanding had not been properly saved, was lost and I had to redo it all again…

    I AM grateful for a safe train trip home enlivened by Sandra’s interest in how I had spent my time since Thursday evening and especially what I had learned at John Demartini’s The Secret Revealed presentation

    I AM grateful for my warm jacket to put on when we arrived at the station

    I AM grateful for my snug, warm and welcoming home after the walk in the fresh breeze

    I AM grateful for the rain that had fallen in my absence

    I AM grateful for the lovely vegetables and wine I really enjoyed cooking and eating for my dinner

    I AM grateful for the telephone to call Denise and know that she had a safe journey home and all was well when she got there…. And for the discussion on the different distinctions we had realised the night before

    I AM grateful for my warm bed and early night, for the good 5 hours of sleep I had before awaking and for the snuggling and planning as to how I could put Denise’s idea to improve the Feng Shui for sleeping …. and for the subsequent 2 hours sleep I drifted into much later

    I AM grateful I woke up with enough time to be ready to leave for work without having to rush too much

    I AM grateful for the brisk walk to the station, the cheery greeting from Gloria along the way

    I AM grateful for the train arriving on time and Sandra’s lively chatter along the way

    I AM grateful I was three quarters of an hour early for my meeting at 242 and so had time to breakfast at new café in Little Burke St where the warm croissant was so light and crisp and the (different brand) cappuccino was very nice and well made

    I AM grateful we had a good and productive meeting and I was able to put my points across and feel listened to…. especially as it is going over ground covered many times before …. And the problems still won’t be resolved

    I AM grateful for the walk through Chinatown back to my building/office and that there weren’t any pressing problems awaiting my attention when I got here

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to write of all these things I am grateful for

    I AM grateful I can read all the other lists and so keep in touch with what is happening in the lives of those of my special friends who are posting their lists.

    I AM grateful “I am alive, I am well and I feel great”……was the motto of the SWAP Club I enjoyed membership and fellowship of all those years ago….

    I AM grateful I am recalling and resonating with one of John Demartini’s quotes:
    “Be sure to fill the garden of your life with beautiful flowers or you will be forever pulling weeds” (I’m not recalling his source)

    I AM grateful for the lovely steak dinner I cooked and ate… again on both nights

    I AM grateful for the long telephone call from my son on Wednesday night… even when it meant that I had a longer trip to a supermarket to get the ingredients for a Cheese “ball” for Thursday’s Greatest Morning Tea (he talked so long it was after 10-20pm and the local one was closed and I had already chopped up some of the ingredients and needed to buy the rest)

    I AM especially grateful to Maria who organised it all and to those who contributed to the two big party hampers raffled.

    I AM grateful those approximately 60 people who attended and purchased raffle tickets raised $515 for the Cancer Council.

    I AM especially grateful that I was the winner of one of the hampers of goodies

    I AM grateful I was able to stagger home under the 10kg extra weight of the basket and it’s contents without doing myself a mischief

    I AM grateful for my good night’s sleep… and for all the sleep I have had today…
    only getting up now to go out dancing …..

    I AM grateful for days off so that I can sleep all day and do nothing….

    I AM grateful it is watering day tomorrow so I can get up early to revive all the plants stressed by today’s strong winds.

    I AM grateful to all my extra orchids that have belatedly decided to honour me with flower spikes…. and for the ones that are still working on it

    I AM grateful I can spend the time in the sun weeding and staking those orchids and particularly grateful for the simple little clips that make the “tying” much easier these days

    I AM grateful for the spare pots and coir I have on hand to be able to up-pot those orchids that have over-filled their pots and need more space for the spikes to develop properly

    I AM grateful to all the plants that are showing me their beautiful flowers today … and there are lots of them…. and especially for the more than 10 different colours of schlumbergera flowers all out together

    I AM grateful for all the grass I am about to cut, it looks so lovely green and lush and tells me the rain we had has benefited all plants

    I AM grateful I can take this break before I go out and garden some more

    I AM Grateful for a good night’s sleep and for the lovely lie in I had this morning

    I AM grateful that I could get up when I felt like it and then slop around in grungy clothes all day

    I AM grateful for the lovely breakfast eaten while admiring the newly opening orchid flowers

    I AM grateful for the four new orchids that decided today was a good day to open the first flower on their spike… one a seedling to be seen for the very first time

    I AM grateful for the beautifully warm day and for all the pottering around I was able to do

    I AM grateful I found a whole lot more orchid plants that have flower spikes, some on plants I thought were too small and three that are rather precocious seedlings that aren’t really old enough

    I AM grateful that almost 100 cymbidium plants now are showing flower spikes, many are multiple spiked with as many as nine spikes on the one plant…

    I AM grateful that so many plants have shown the season must be rather late as when I looked at the expected time there were less than 25 plants showing spikes

    I AM grateful I got the rest of the long grass cut before it rains again

    I AM grateful for the nice hot shower to ease the aches and pains after the gardening

    I AM grateful I had plenty of time to cook and enjoy a Chicken Laksa for dinner

    I AM grateful for my safe drive to and from the Peninsula Golf Club tonight to attend a meeting

    I AM grateful the speaker was so knowledgeable and competent to talk on how important hormones are and the health consequences of being out of balance

    I AM grateful that I now have a warm bed comfortable bed to go to

    I AM grateful Susie is flying and enjoying her life so much and all good things are coming to pass

    I AM grateful that Trevor contributes so much to Susie’s life and for their synergy, being such a great role model couple

    I AM grateful for a good night’s sleep and awaking early to water and feed my plants

    I AM grateful I thought to unhook all the hanging orchids I put up yesterday and put them all on the ground this morning

    I AM grateful I was up in time to see the magnificent sunrise colours on downy cotton soft clouds and the lovely warm temperature as I fed the orchids

    I AM grateful for the chance to chat with my neighbour Sharon on the walk to the station this morning

    I AM grateful for the train arriving on time this morning, for Sandra’s cheery chatter and interest in my doings since Thursday night on the crowded, slow trip.

    I AM grateful for the great cappuccino Ange made me this morning… nobody makes then quite as well as he does and I do miss this daily treat on the days when I don’t go into the city

    I AM grateful for the very busy varied work day I had today and for the various challenges that I had to deal with

    I AM grateful I was able to get away in time to catch my usual train and in spite of the people packed in tighter than usual, the delays and to get home safely accompanied by Sandra’s cheery chatter

    I AM grateful that Chris was able to force her way onto the train at Parliament and that we could catch up briefly at Bonbeach Station

    I AM grateful the little bit of rain was all over before I needed to walk home… the wind was quite cool enough enough without a jacket

    I AM exceeding grateful to have escaped any wind damage at all, especially to my orchids or my shadehouse

    I AM grateful for a warm dry home, good food (already prepared and only needing reheating) and soon to be snuggled up in my nice warm comfortable bed…ready for another big day tomorrow.

    I AM very grateful that my 80yr young neighbour and friend Sheila, has been called Home, released from her pain and suffering of the last 8 months

    I AM very grateful her family were with her and let her go; and who plan to make her funeral a real fun celebration of her life

    I AM grateful that in the short time I have been living here I have been able to be a good neighbour to Shelia (even buying her smokes) and Yvonne, as they have been to me

    I AM grateful for the honour of her company on scenic drives around Mornington Peninsula – often to places she had never been before, to her ‘favourite shop’ – Bunnings, and all the trips for coffee at Gardenworld and Chelsea

    I AM grateful for my safe travel yesterday (and for when I go out today) especially coming home after midnight last night and getting home just as it started to rain

    I AM grateful for the very busy day at work yesterday, especially all the precautionary preparations we have put in place, in case we have a very serious challenge on out hands on Monday as the result of a huge platform and software release this weekend

    I AM grateful I could still find the time to go out to do a little essential shopping, especially to get a card in the post for my grandson’s 16th birthday next Wednesday (in NZ)

    I AM grateful for the good meal, fun with the friendly people and hours of dancing rock’n’roll to the great band at the RSL and especially grateful to be privileged to watch a man in a wheelchair on the dance floor dancing, either with a lady on his knees or swinging them around his chair in rock’n’roll – it is such an uplifting, heart warming experience.

    I AM grateful my bed was ready to receive me when I got home…I certainly didn’t need any more rocking to sleep

    I AM grateful my knees, hips and ankles still work this morning and are virtually painless

    I AM grateful another orchid has opened flowers on the spike and that at least another two plants with multiple spikes will do the same this weekend

    I AM grateful to discover one of my lapagerias, rosea albiflora has opened an exquisite pristine white flower, especially this late in the year (Chilean bellflower is its common name)

    I AM grateful that all my plants (and crude structures) have come through all the wild winds and rain unscathed

    I AM grateful for the rain as it meant I could sleep in, instead of having to get up and water and now I am grateful for the sunshine this morning as I ate my brunch

    I AM grateful that when I need it, I have a wonderful Spanish Proverb to guide me … “How beautiful it is to do nothing … and then rest afterwards.”

    I AM grateful that I can support Elizabeth in her endeavours … which also greatly supports me in mine.

    I AM grateful the Grateful Chain has been such a valuable resource and guide for me to have grown through what could have been a rather painful and difficult ‘growth spurt’

    I AM grateful I can post “Carrots, eggs or coffee?” to the Inspiration Stories and Quotes page.

    I AM grateful I wrote a to do list for this weekend

    I AM grateful I chose just the pleasurable things on it to do

    I AM grateful I did some pleasurable things that weren’t on that list

    I AM grateful I took time out to see the sea and marvel at the beautiful turquoise shallows, shading to the deepest cobalt blue

    I AM grateful I now have some new purple colour co-ordinated items added to my wardrobe

    I AM grateful I took time out to nurture myself, to go for coffee, as we would have done if Sheila had still been here, to remember the good times

    I AM grateful my beliefs sustain me in knowing it was Sheila’s time to go, that she was ready to go and wanted to

    I AM grateful Yvonne and her sisters have had such a wonderful time planning Sheila’s funeral, finding peace and healing in doing so

    I AM grateful that they have found really wonderful people who are providing the essential services

    I AM grateful I have been able to be of practical assistance to Yvonne

    I AM grateful for supermarkets close and handy, for all the good food and ingredients for cooking they stock

    I AM grateful for the good meals I cooked for myself

    I AM grateful for television to bring me such a great view of the rugby field so I can enjoy watching a game (even if it was a shocker) taking place far away that I can’t attend

    I AM grateful for a good night’s sleep and for waking up this morning

    I AM grateful I haven’t lost my old country skills… doing a baking this afternoon, like before shearing that would fill up the freezer with biscuits, buns and loaf and delivering some of them to Yvonne tonight, ready for the influx of visitors tomorrow sure to arrive once the notice appears in the paper

    I AM grateful I can write this list and check my e-mails while I am waiting for the loaves to cook as I well may not have time tomorrow at work

    I AM grateful for the very busy days I have had at my place of employment even though it has conspired to delay me from posting my daily gratefuls

    I AM grateful the Deployment went well over last weekend and that Monday brought no immediate challenges … and Tuesday and Wednesday were trouble free as well

    I AM especially grateful I am no longer travelling three hours daily on V-line

    I AM grateful for safe travel each day … at all different times of the day … and including my driving around yesterday and my walk home much later than usual tonight

    I AM grateful for my new manager finding a way to approve me a flex day to attend Sheila’s funeral after initially refusing point blank to consider the request

    I AM grateful for the wonderful service in the beautiful chapel at Bunurong Park – such a great setting too

    I am especially grateful they chose such an amazing Celebrant who had such beautiful material for the service and especially for her magical voice and the way she made the whole experience so special

    I AM grateful, that as neighbours, Sharon, Corrie and I were able to share the occasion together

    I AM grateful for the way I nurtured myself on the day at, and after, the service

    I AM grateful I took time out to visit an orchid nursery at Tyabb, purchasing an orchid in Sheila’s memory – named Rembrant “Masterpiece” – and going on to have lunch in Mornington, spending reminiscent time at the lookout overlooking the sea and then visiting Bunnings on the way home – to get those extra stakes I need for all the orchid spikes…

    I AM grateful for finding a great pair of dancing shoes, a raincoat and lots of books at the Op shop – because I do love the challenge of finding such really great bargains there.

    I AM grateful that the smoked chicken, spinach and fetta risotto I tried to re-create (without a recipe) turned out so well and was really yummy and that the rest of the bottle of chardonnay (after what was required for the dish) was even yummier with it

    I AM grateful for the really great, long conversation I had with my great friend Joan (84) last night and especially to be able to rejoice with her at all the rain they have had which is at last starting to raise the water level in the dams

    I AM especially grateful to hear that a real favourite of mine Ned, the 12 yr old brown kelpie, is showing that he is experiencing relief from his “all natural” treatment for his arthritis

    I AM grateful for painkillers to help with mine …

    I AM grateful that the gremlins that apparently have need and use for my reading glasses are about to decide to return them to me for my use

    I AM grateful to have seen the rainbow on my walk to the train this morning … and for the cheery chat with Gloria and Hamish the Scottie dog on the way

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to meet with my major support people over drinks after work this evening, (a very, very rare occurrence) to particularly thank one who is moving on to a different job after 6 years of us working together … and to learn more about the personality of his replacement.

    I AM grateful for risotto leftovers that I’ve only had to reheat for my dinner tonight… and for the warm bed that is about to give my tired aching body comfort and rest

    I AM grateful for the very busy day I had on Friday and for still being able to get to the RSL in time for “The Raffles”, make my donation for “The Warcry” and for dinner … and to go home early when the Rock of Ages Band was too unbearably loud… and I don’t usually have a problem with loud music …

    I AM grateful for a good book to keep me amused in bed … before and after sleep

    I AM grateful for the lovely warm bed to go back to after getting up to water plants early on Saturday morning

    I AM grateful for the abundance and freedom of choice on how I spend my day when not at work and for not feeling any guilt at ignoring a lot of “shoulds”

    I AM grateful for food and ingredients already in my fridge and cupboards and for the time and knowhow to prepare what I fancied for my meals

    I AM grateful for microwaves and a magnificent Scanpan Wok to make “roast” vegetables so easy and tasty

    I AM grateful for my good health and the ability to resist cold and flu bugs attempting to assault me currently

    I AM grateful for my orchids to keep me amused as I photograph them, move them around, check for more spikes, add the info to my spreadsheets and attempt to pursuade/train the spikes to grow in the right direction

    I AM grateful for digital cameras and laptop computer to view the results in front of the heater

    I AM grateful for a full 8 hours of sleep this morning after watching the Wallabies v Fiji Rugby Union game on TV

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to go to Gardenworld for coffee and to get the Orchid Review Magazine with all the wonderful photos and growing information it contains

    I AM grateful for washing machines and clothes dryers this damp cold weather

    I AM grateful to the gremlins for returning my reading glasses undamaged … and that I still have and can use my old ones while the new ones were otherwise engaged

    I AM grateful to hear from my nephew Brent and that he will soon be going home to Mt Gambier to live and work from there

    I AM grateful that there are good hospital facilities caring for Yvonne and Andrew (another nephew) as they anxiously live one day at a time, hoping to carry their first baby closer to term

    I AM grateful for IVF services that have allowed them to get to this 3rd trimester stage after all the years and times of disappointment

    I AM grateful for music DVD’s to entertain me when there isn’t anything educational on TV … specifically tonight – the Seekers 25th Anniversary Tour – a trip down nostalgia lane, with both good and not so good memories, great dancing experiences and a learning experience from the commentary on the history and who wrote which, mostly themselves, as it is the first time I have watched it … and it won’t be the last … even more there are two songs for today, here and now, appropriate for the sentiments of this site – “Keep a Dream in your Pocket” and the Rick Springfield song “Speak to the Sky” – check them out …

    I AM grateful for another holiday day tomorrow in which, from so much richness and abundance, I can choose to do so many things … or as few as I desire

    I AM grateful for my perseverance when my internet connection kept failing so now I can post my “gratefuls”

    I AM grateful for the very busy day I have had today … after yesterday’s gentle pace and pleasures

    I AM grateful I got through my stint on the helpdesk this afternoon in a relatively painless manner, especially as well as having to also handle a significant outage crisis again

    I AM grateful for my safe travel over the past few days and for Sandra’s cheery chatter and interest in my doings (and the account of hers) since we last travelled together

    I AM grateful for the magnificence of the sun reflecting on the back of the dark storm cloud formation that fringed the top of it with a golden glow of light this morning

    I AM grateful for warm colourful clothing to wear on a crisp freshly washed morning as I walked to the station to catch the train

    I AM grateful to have been able to get out shopping at lunchtime to find the right buttons and thread to match the blouses on which I needed to update by replacing all the buttons, as well as just one button for the missing one on my new coat … and for the junk food enjoyed today

    I AM grateful I have had the time and energy to sew them all on tonight as that is another item I can cross off my list and I think I will really need the coat tomorrow if the forecasted weather arrives to run its course

    I AM grateful for the talents of all the artists that exhibited in the Chelsea 33rd annual Art show over the holiday weekend that I was privileged to view yesterday morning, and for the great organisers and volunteers that made it a good show

    I AM grateful I was really challenged to decide on which exhibit I wanted to vote for in the People’s Choice award, such was the variety and excellence of the 1000 exhibits to choose from … and then to be well satisfied and quite surprised by that choice

    I am grateful that the exhibits intrigued me and inspired me to really think about and make plans to guide me in discovering/using my own talents

    I AM really grateful for the collection of large pots Yvonne has given me; they will be a great help at cymbidium repotting time

    I AM grateful that my orchids are still surprising me with more and more spikes, and that three are especially generous with 12, 11 and 10 spikes per plant, all contributing to a (so far) expected season of 160 spikes from the cymbidiums alone with very many more from the dendrobiums and other genera

    I AM grateful for the pleasure of luxuriating in the smell and feel of newly washed bedlinen, especially when warmed to comfort my body

    I AM grateful I am a very sensuous person able to find some substitutes for the lack of touching in my life while keeping the space open to receive what I am so missing

    I AM grateful for my good health … and especially for the higher dose of anti-inflammatory medication I currently admit to needing to lessen the overall stiffness and pain on moving all parts of my body with the advent of the cold weather

    I AM grateful that Sandra’s family will be able to finally lay a young boy to rest on Thursday some 11 days after tragically losing his life in a quad bike accident in WA and that she, her sister and brother have been able to get fights to and accommodation in Perth. I wish them safe travel and comfort in their grief and togetherness.

    I AM grateful Crystal wanted to join us – I enjoyed her contribution
    and look forward to more

    I AM grateful Elizabeth is having so much fun and success

    I AM very grateful Susie and Trevor had safe travel and the wonderful family experience … welcome back … and I do envy them that trip, I loved Cairns when I visited a couple of years ago (even the nasties)and I am looking forward to your contributions again … I have missed you here.

    I am gracious that life has blessed me with so few problems, that I sit here inventing imaginary ones in my mind…Like, my relationship feels boring, although I’m in love with a man I know is “the one”, I should be happy that we aren’t fighting or struggling through issues, and that monotonous feeling shoud dissipate, it is actually a blessing.

    And then there’s Dinah, Margaret and Justin who have joined us along the way.
    I am grateful that you get benefit from such a simple exercise like this.
    For those of you who don’t know, Crystal (my 8 year old daughter), made her first post several days ago and I’m grateful that she has soaked this up and wanted to be part of what we do!
    I have been contacted by people I don’t know from several other countries (phone calls and e-mails). I appreciate you taking the time to do that and I thank you for brightening my day.
    It was a huge thrill when Matt and Icequeen made their first posts yesterday.
    I receive an e-mail every time YOU make a post here and it is indescribable the effect that this has on me…it’s as if you add meaning to my life.
    SO I THANK YOU ALL (FROM MY HEART) FOR CONTRIBUTING TO THIS WEBSITE, AND TO MY LIFE.

    There are no rules – be creative and have fun.

    But for now, let me thank you all again for contributing in such a meaningful way.

    I AM so very grateful for the money that has arrived in my mailbox

    I AM grateful for the exquisite colouring of the huge flowers opening on all three spikes of “The Khan”

    I AM grateful to talk on the telephone with my sister last night, to hear that all is well with my nearly 89yr old dad, that his surgery is to finally take place in the next few weeks.

    I AM grateful to hear that my sister is enjoying her new relationship (I am very envious); losing weight (double envious); and her painting and golf interests; and new business endeavours

    I AM grateful for the food, lovely warm home I have, the good heater, comfortable chair, and two doonas on my bed on very cold nights

    I AM grateful for my warm clothes, especially the new coat to become layer 5 to be out in the frosty air this morning – the whitest I have seen the rooves, cars and ground in all my years in Melbourne

    I AM grateful for my safe travel, on time, and for Chris’s company and conversation

    I AM grateful to have had the opportunity to be very busy both yesterday and today

    I AM grateful it is pay/redistribution day and I can pay my bills

    I AM grateful I have been able to get my act together and have posted a gift and card to my son for his birthday … probably the last, given the now exorbitant postage rates on small parcels – I’ll stick to cards or phone calls from now on…or deliver to NZ in person

    I am grateful for the crisp walk home and the opportunity to admire the clear starry night, and even against the city glow, identify some of the constellations and observe that the Southern Cross is now almost overhead

    I AM grateful Yvonne came to visit this evening, that she is handling the loss of her mother so magnificently well, has such positive plans for getting on with her life now, … and that she feels free to come visit if she is feeling too alone.

    I AM very grateful I have just watched “Still Doing It: The intimate lives of women over 65” on the ABC…such a validating and inspirational documentary … wow I hope it is all there in my future too…. I’ve still got so much time to make up and to look forward to

    I AM grateful for the new participants, the way this is evolving and for the suggestion of a more interactive forum as I think some feedback might be fun and maybe even more encouraging or helpful for some of us

    I AM grateful for the idea that occurred to me to take my car to the RSL car park, on Friday morning to leave it for the whole day and night until I was ready to go home, rather than having to time the rest of my journey home after the dancing, to coincide with the train timetable…. and walking to the train station from there to catch the train to work.

    I AM grateful my work colleague, John, was sufficiently interested to ask why I was catching the train from a different station

    I AM grateful to Ange for the really great cappuccino he made with love and for Megan making my toasted breakfast croissant

    I AM grateful for another busy day at work on Friday (even though I didn’t get yesterday’s list compiled and posted) and for the empathy and support of my colleagues

    I AM grateful for remembering the personal tasks I needed to do…. even though it meant I missed out on my planned sit down lunch … while not being able to find what I was looking for.

    I AM grateful for the junk food… and the fresh fruit juices that filled the gap….

    I AM grateful for an early finish to catch the early train to get to the RSL in time for the rituals

    I AM grateful that Yvonne joined me there, even though she went home very early.

    I AM grateful for the nice food and drink, the opportunity to empty my wallet of coins in the Salvation Army collection box and receive the Warcry in return

    I AM grateful for the musical instrumentalists (especially the saxophones – close enough to a trumpet, my preferred brass instrument) and their skills in providing the lively music for dancing…. the bass guitar player was particularly spectacular…. and was ably supported by the other guitarist, drummer and purely vocalist.

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to strike up conversation with a 69 year young lady whom I have seen walking in my street and find out she is a recent discoverer of “The Secret” and that she is promoting it to all her extended family and friends

    I AM grateful my knees were up to the dancing challenge… even though they kept me awake for a long time afterwards and I had to resort to the heavy massage machine to eventually get to sleep

    I AM grateful for the three and a half hours of sleep I achieved before the alarm went off and I HAD to get up to travel to Foster for a 9>30am appointment

    I AM grateful the all enveloping fog wasn’t as bad as forecast when it came to my two hour drive to Foster … the journey took only an extra ten minutes … and from Loch onwards the fog disappeared to brilliant sunshine with just the occasional swirl of fog

    I AM grateful the unneeded additional time I allowed for the trip then gave me plenty of time for breakfast at the fantastic Bakery in Foster.

    I AM grateful Suzette was looking out for me to arrive early and then to make an early start on the session.

    I AM grateful for the really great session I had with Suzette, for her knowledge, skills and above all her friendliness and caring.

    I AM grateful for my body’s intuition as to the supplements it needs and that the cocktail of “pills” showed to be very positive for me

    I AM grateful for the early lunch at the bakery afterwards

    I AM grateful I was able to briefly catch up with Elizabeth, Crystal and Daniel before they set out on their walk.

    I AM really grateful to have seen the sunshine in South Gippsland after not seeing it for a couple of days in the city

    I AM grateful I can remain so disappointed yet philosophical at not being able to catch up with another friend when he wasn’t home when I called in.

    I AM grateful for my safe journey home again, (still thick fog from Korumburra to Lang Lang), another cappuccino and then stopping off to get some fresh fish in Tooradin.

    I AM grateful for the overcast but still day with an incoming tide in Tooradin allowed me to take some superb photos with interesting reflections.

    I AM grateful for the “nanna nap” I needed to have when I got home… scraping the bumper on the turn into my garage showed my just how tired I was

    I AM grateful for my warm (now) house, good food and wine to enjoy until it is time to watch the tri nations rugby union match between Australia and South Africa later on tonight…. if I can stay awake that is….

    I AM grateful this PC allows me (very slow dial up) to download my e-mails and to write this list.

    I AM very grateful for the wonderful responses to e-mails I sent off during the week

    I AM really grateful irmawil has the courage to join us on the Grateful Chain

    I am especially grateful irmawil has had the best part of a day without crying and I will be even more delighted to hear that she has is having very many more of them because I’ve been there I know how important that is to be able to take the day at just a minute, an hour, another hour until it becomes just a whole one day at a time…..

    I AM grateful for Susie’s kind words … and isn’t it interesting, I really value Susie’s grateful list, often with a large degree of envy for the peace and beauty she lives amongst as well as the quality of her life

    I AM grateful I was able to wake up to see the match last night … it did take several naps to get me through the time, and even more grateful it was an excellent match to watch.

    I AM grateful my son has finally found time to reply to several e-mails as he and my daughter in law have been so busy pruning their grapes … completed 5000 in the past month but still have more than 70% still to go … as well as running around after two sons involved with their sports.

    I AM grateful for a very quiet day today which I have spent playing with the camera, laptop and printer to have some samples to show to interested friends and colleagues

    I AM grateful for the ability to see so much more detail than the immediately obvious and to find unusual angles and views to photograph.

    I AM grateful for the skill and talent I have in that direction and for the wonderful results

    I AM grateful for good heating, warm clothes and a safe secure environment that I live in

    I AM grateful for the very surprise passing visit from an old friend whom I love very dearly, down from Coffs Harbour for a couple of days and whom I haven’t seen nor heard from in 14 months… not even an e-mail…

    I AM grateful for the lovely back rub, kisses and cuddles he shared with me … and I do regret feeling I had to say no to more than that … as much as I wanted it, it would have been just too casual … and I need to be able to look myself in the eye in the mirror in the morning with respect …

    I AM grateful I need to work on my relationship goals and redefine my criteria

    I AM grateful to all of you for being in my life and to be able to share this list with you … it keeps me honest and on track when I look for the positives

    I AM grateful I woke up early to catch an early train to work on Monday and left myself short of time so drove the car to the station

    I AM grateful to the lady who offered and gave up her seat on the train for me

    I AM grateful to have arrived at work with no knowledge of the drama a couple of blocks away

    I AM grateful for a busy day and for a wonderful Greek chicken and rice soup lunch

    I AM grateful for the praise and appreciative feedback when I shared my photos at work

    I AM grateful for Chris’s company on the train journey home and for her interest in my ‘doings’

    I AM grateful for the brisk walk home from the station… and (I think – for the extra exercise?) for the extra walk back to the station to retrieve my car… which I had walked right past and didn’t even see or remember where it was until I arrived home and it wasn’t there….

    I AM grateful for only needing a snack dinner and to be able to relax warm and comfortable to enjoy the ABC’s Monday night lineup of programmes

    I AM grateful I was able to see the Four Corners programme and know it isn’t just me that feels a disappointed dissatisfaction with many aspects of my workplace

    I AM especially grateful to see and be reminded of the beautiful and amazing Jane Goodall and her work with the chimpanzees

    I AM grateful for a good deep night’s sleep, awakening early so I could water those plants that miss out on the clear stuff that is supposed to fall generously from the sky

    I AM grateful for the good warm clothes to keep out the cold wind this morning

    I AM grateful I saw the sunrise again this morning… though not as colourful as yesterday morning

    I AM grateful both Sandra and Chris shared the train journey with me this morning

    I AM grateful Sandra had safe travel to and from Perth and the funeral for her nephew’s young son… quite an ordeal

    I AM grateful for the opportunity on my walk from the station to work to purchase my next fortnight’s travel tickets and to ‘rescue’ a bunch of yellow asiatic lilies for my desk

    I AM grateful for my change of breakfast menu this morning and a very different lunch of prawn dumplings and noodle soup from an outlet I hadn’t tried before… and both meals were yummy

    I AM grateful for my safe travel home tonight, again in the company of Sandra and Chris.

    I AM grateful for the lovely bangers, mash and gravy dinner I cooked and enjoyed tonight… and with enough leftover for lunch tomorrow

    I AM grateful for good heaters, warm clothes…. and my electric blanket warmed bed that is about to embrace me and take me off to dreamland

    I AM grateful that this is such a fun way to keep a diary (this is the longest I have ever managed to do so)and stay focused on the positives of all the things that happen to, and around, me each day

    I am grateful to get back from Melbourne and see all the activity on the Grateful-Chain.
    I am grateful to see more new registrations today and that GRATEFULSHAY has made a contribution here straight away.
    I am grateful to sit back and watch as your grateful lists seem to grow the more you keep writing them.
    I am grateful to have had a safe trip away today (sorry, that’s yesterday now).
    I am grateful that the migraine that I had, worked it’s way through itself.
    I am grateful for the massive downpour of rain that we’ve had – for our overseas friends – South Eastern AUSTRALIA has been experiencing some low rainfall levels over the past 12 months and it’s such a blessing to have water in our tanks and water catchment areas again.
    I am grateful that the loud rendition of “MOON RIVER that I performed for myself on the way home in the car tonight, sounded pretty good.
    I am grateful to be involved in such a positive web site, and even though we all have challenges to face, we are finding creative ways to verbalize them.
    I am grateful that The Grateful Chain has attracted such a delightful bunch of people from all sorts of places. THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS SUCH A GREAT SITE TO VISIT.
    I am so grateful that IRMAWIL, RAINBOW and GRATEFULSHAY are willing to put a voice to their life challenges and I feel honoured that you are doing it here with us…THANK YOU!

    I am grateful for the laugh I got from Trevor as I pictured his ‘worm’ home.
    I am grateful for Trevor’s feedback which brought a tear to my eyes as the impact of someone else caring hit and the realisation that I really did forgive myself.
    I am grateful for the joy and sense of belonging I feel here after only 3 days!
    I am grateful that all three children went to school today.
    I am grateful to my youngest who cuddled and kissed me to reassure me after one of his brothers made an unfriendly comment to me last night
    I am grateful for the open and honest relationship I have with my kids which allowed us to discuss what happened.
    I am grateful for the fact that my children recognise me as a real live person – I certainly didn’t see my parents that way until I was an adult!
    I am grateful then for my parents who must have tolerated my selfishness.
    I am grateful for our cheery postie who I will miss so much when she retires soon.
    I am grateful for my health.

    I AM grateful I checked my personal e-mail when I did and that it was still soon enough for me to register to receive one of a very limited number of a free DVD of “The Secret Revealed” with Dr John Demartini and for the invitation to order one for a friend as well. I hope Denise enjoys the surprise when it arrives in her mailbox as she did enjoy the presentation we attended.

    I AM grateful for my safe travel with entertaining interactions with Sandra, Chris and Margaret

    I AM grateful for restorative sleep in warmth and comfort…. (I’d be even more grateful for a loving male body to snuggle up to)

    I AM grateful for warm comfortable clothing for the rather cold walks to and from the train station

    I AM grateful for the almost 8mm of rain in the past 24hrs…

    I AM grateful for good food and the means to cook it, reheat it, freeze it and store it.

    I AM grateful for the ease of buying breakfast, lunch or cappuccinos in the central city.

    I AM especially grateful for Ange’s special skill in making those cappuccinos. They are the best.

    I AM grateful for a caring doctor, Sarah, who is really interested in how I am…. and who, while discussing the merits of different wines, spent lots of time applying liquid nitrogen to many unsightly, itchy and annoying “senile warts” over many parts of my body this morning… and for panamax tablets to ease the discomfort that resulted.

    I AM grateful for my otherwise good health and that Medicare will refund almost all of my consultation fees, just not the liquid nitrogen

    I AM grateful for a place of employment to go to and for the camaraderie of my team

    I AM grateful I was able to sort out a problem with a very volatile client in a very calm and gentle way today in spite of the temptation to be far more confrontational and demanding of an apology…. none is forthcoming yet… and it doesn’t matter…

    I AM grateful I had only one teleconference meeting to take part in today and that I am about to go home again

    I AM grateful for the newcomers to this chain for the new insights they bring and no doubt will receive from participating

    I AM grateful they are finding assistance with their challenges and hope they find it as uplifting and rewarding as I do/have done

    I AM grateful I had an interesting day at work on Friday

    I AM grateful I was able to remember so many of my achievements when I needed to write them up at very short notice…. it used to be called a performance development report and was written up by one’s manager… nowadays it is a performance plan… and I had to write it all up for myself and then we both signed it?

    I AM grateful for the new Medicare office in the Galleria with its new customer queuing system where it took a mere 5 minutes to get my refund of the whole consultation fee from Thursday

    I AM grateful I was able to find the new mineral supplements easily and at a good price on my way back to work

    I AM grateful I was able to leave work early and catch the train to get me to the RSL on time.

    I AM grateful Yvonne arrived to join me for a short time; and that she’d had a good day off work and going to Bingo as she and her mother would have and then winning $80 on the pokies.

    I AM grateful a new band Showtime, there for the very first time, replaced the advertised band as they were very good and had a record number of people up dancing right from the start.

    I AM grateful I am able to dance and enjoy the music.

    I AM very grateful to the friendly people who came to share my table and that they introduced me to others made my night even more interesting and enjoyable. There is something quite special about hearing people say “I’ll see you next week?” as you say goodnight

    I AM grateful I took my car up there in the morning and left it parked all day, ready to go home when my evening finished.

    I AM grateful for a good long morning’s sleep (it was just after midnight when I got home and a good sleep in followed by time to finish the book I was reading

    I AM grateful Sandra brought me round a couple of Aloe Vera plants this morning, then admired my orchids out in flower and went home pleased that one of her orchids has got a spike showing.

    I AM grateful for the dull grey damp cold day today so I could use the heater to warm up my spare room so I could attend to most of the pile of mending and button re-sewing that was waiting for me.

    I AM grateful I happened across a repeat showing of that great film, Calendar Girls. I really enjoyed it yet again

    I AM grateful for the freedom to choose to do whatever I feel like

    I AM grateful for all the comforts in my life

    I AM grateful for all my friends, old and new – and feel excited about the new ones I met last night

    I AM grateful for finding a lovely new quote to add to the Inspirational Quotes page and which I’d like to share with you all here as well

    ((-: SMILE :-))
    “Smile at each other; Smile at your wife, Smile at your husband, Smile at your children,
    Smile at each other; It doesn’t matter who it is …and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other” – Mother Teresa

    I AM grateful I can have fun smiling at people. It works. I hope it helps their day too (even if they are only wondering what it is that I have been up to to be smiling).

    I AM grateful for a great night’s sleep and a lovely lie in this morning and that my treatment last week isn’t causing me too much discomfort

    I AM grateful for the lovely brunch I enjoyed and for all the pills I swallowed with it

    I AM grateful for the interesting variety of topics shown on Landline, Gardening Australia and Message Stick… regular fare I enjoy whenever I am home on a Sunday lunchtime

    I AM grateful the sun was shining today and it was warm enough to dry the grass out the front so I could cut it again

    I AM grateful for the strength to shift furniture around and to set up an additional table in front of the big lounge window to put some of the orchids that are out in flower on.

    I AM grateful for stick on picture hooks and a spirit level so I could rehang my lovely seascape picture … and hang it level

    I AM grateful for my decision this evening to drive to Mornington and have dinner at the Boyz with John

    I AM grateful that I filled the car with petrol at the first servo down the road … it proved to be the cheapest of all the ones on the way

    I AM grateful I left home in time to see the very last of a very colourful sunset and sorry I didn’t leave earlier so I could have seen more and photographed it

    I AM grateful for the lovely lamb roast, gravy, roast potato, roast pumpkin, green beans and zucchini served to me… living on my own, a roast isn’t something I get to have very often as it isn’t something one cooks for oneself

    I AM grateful for the glass of excellent Margaret River shiraz John recommended that I have with it

    I AM grateful I chose to have a dessert with the coffee… and didn’t feel guilty enjoying it immensely… even if it was my second choice when my first choice had run out.

    I AM grateful John is always so pleased to see me, interested in how I am and what I am doing and he has invited me to go back to share a bubbly with him on my birthday… if I don’t have any other plans

    I AM grateful for my safe travel there and home again after stopping off to look at the wonderful view of the lights across the sea from Oliver’s Hill, and also at the supermarket.

    I AM grateful for the chicken and lovely fresh vegetables I bought to make a big pot of soup, some steak and mushrooms and the ingredients for a smoked chicken and spinach risotto which will be enough meals for me for at least a week …

    I AM grateful for my warm comfortable bed that is waiting for me and the knowledge that I have tomorrow off work so can have another day of choosing how to spend it … after I make the soup of course …

    I AM grateful for my container of soup I took for lunch… especially as the workshop was over the lunch time

    I AM grateful for the amazing clarity of my mind today as I have been resting in the aftermath of my body’s decision to go into a spontaneous detox over the past 48 hours

    I AM so grateful for the BFO (blinding flash of the obvious) in regard to what had been a very long held desire. I thought it had been fulfilled recently but I now realise it was actually fulfilled six years before – and I had lost sight of it in the disappointment that followed

    I AM so grateful for the e-mail message received on Wednesday and re-read a number of times that gave rise to this realisation today…. and it was such a simple phrase “Love you for who you are” with which he ended most e-mails from the time we first met in person those more than five years ago

    I AM grateful I have the gift and pleasure of the all the good memories, that the chemistry is mutual and am looking forward to responding to that message as the beginning of understanding and a new phase in our friendship

    I AM grateful I can now joyfully really release a more recent situation that doesn’t matter anymore and isn’t good or right for me

    I AM grateful for my safe travel to and from work and that when it was very wet and windy I got home relatively dry and with my umbrella intact; and when it wasn’t raining that I could admire and appreciate moon and stars and fleeting cloud shapes

    I AM grateful I have a place of work to go to… especially when it comes to payday

    I AM grateful for the busy three days I had this week and for the courage to hang up on abuse and provide honest feedback when given the opportunity and for the sense of bridge building that felt like

    I AM grateful for my realisation (today) that the dreaded new ticketing system we had a brief basic training for on Wednesday holds some possibilities I need to explore to be able to include another group I interact with to better manage the workflows between several groups

    I AM grateful for Joan calling for a chat last night and that in spite of all the wind and frost she is faring well (she reckons all she seems to be doing these days is feed the fire with wood) that the two old cats are driving her nuts (she wonders why they don’t just pack their bags and go if she really is neglecting them as they seem to think) that Ned is so much better after his arthritis treatment, his swollen nobbly paws have gone down and he (at13) is tearing around and playing like a pup at times.

    I AM grateful the free DVD of Dr John Demartini’s Sydney presentation of “The Secret Revealed” which Denise and I saw in Melbourne arrived in the mail yesterday. It is really great to have this reminder of all we saw and heard…and some of the things that didn’t really register first time around…. as watching it again last night was likely the trigger for my realisations today.

    I AM grateful for all my good fortune, good friends, warm sanctuary of my home and all the good people and things coming to me.

    I AM grateful for the really great band and my wonderful night’s dancing, even doing the twist, on Friday night

    I AM grateful to all the new people I met by name… and who expressed amazement at my dancing skills … as well as the people I met last week

    I AM grateful for the great night’s sleep and the lie in and reading that followed the dancing before getting up and going shopping

    I AM grateful for the two new high-necked tops I bought to cover the unsightly marks following the freezing of the ugly spots which, while being very itchy, do seem to be doing what is supposed to happen

    I AM grateful for all the purchases at the supermarket, food and other useful things.

    I AM grateful I decided not to travel to the MCG for the Bledisloe Cup rugby union match – I attended last time it was here – and I have saved the cost of the ticket, plus the train travel there and back; I didn’t get cold and wet and was spared the embarrassment when my team lost …

    I AM grateful I was able to avoid finding out the score before I saw the TV coverage of the game (delayed by over two and a half hours)

    I AM grateful for my nice warm heater, comfortable reclining chair and being able to enjoy the telecast in such comfort … complete with replays of the significant passages of play … it was a good, although not great game of rugby

    I AM grateful I slept well afterwards and woke up well this morning.

    I AM grateful for my washing machine and dryer today so that I can put the sheets etc right back on the bed and have a full selection of clothes to choose from to wear to work tomorrow

    I AM grateful that I went to GardenWorld Collectors’ Corner and admired all the lovely orchids (and other plants) out in flower this morning … food for the soul…

    I AM grateful I had a $50 gift voucher so I could use it to pick up half a dozen cymbidium seedlings of interesting crosses that took my fancy because they were at bargain price … even though it is an act of faith as it will be several more years yet before they flower for the first time and I can see if they really were a bargain

    I AM grateful Bunnings had the products I wanted this morning to be able to foliar feed all my orchids this afternoon … and for the other bits and pieces and beautiful water-saver pots they had at a real bargain price.

    I AM grateful I checked my docket when I got home as I had been overcharged more than $15 and that when I went back this afternoon, the refund was no problem and they were so apologetic (I had forgotten to take my glasses with me in the morning to check it before I left)

    I AM grateful I got my roses pruned as well as another shrub that needed a good cut back… and the bins out to the kerb for collection in the morning

    I AM grateful I cooked for myself tonight and enjoyed a serving of the absolutely fabulous Smoked Chicken, spinach, pinenuts and fetta risotto I concocted… it is so yummy… especially as I had to open a bottle of white wine for the recipe – a 1998 Grant Burge, Eden Valley Riesling – I’m sure it is sacrilege to have used half the bottle in cooking (even if all the best chefs say it must be the best drinking wine) (and I have made enough for half a dozen meals for me) as the other half of the bottle was just fabulous to drink with it.

    I AM grateful that I have e-mailed a carefully considered and written response (bared my heart and soul) to my lovely e-mail from Wednesday (I has taken me over two days to put it together) and know that whatever response, if any, is OK by me.

    I AM grateful to be able to enjoy the lists from my fellow participants and hope all get as much delight and inspiration as I do from them

    I AM grateful that Elizabeth saw this as part of her journey and invited us all along and that through whatever challenges have arisen for her that she hasn’t wavered from her vision (apart from refining and expanding it that is)

    I AM grateful for the busy days at work even when it means I don’t have time to write my gratefuls

    I AM grateful that the very strong winds forecast have either not done any damage in my back yard or otherwise not eventuated

    I AM grateful that I have not needed to use heaters the last two nights – which is so much better for the orchid plants in flower that are sharing my living space and giving me so much pleasure

    I AM grateful for warm and nourishing food I have cooked and eaten these last few days – haven’t bought lunch this week at all…

    I AM grateful for the great cappuccinos Ange has made for me to start my day with.

    I AM so grateful for the amazingly rich and varied day I have had today … and all pure pleasure

    I AM grateful for the safe travel to and from Foster today through all the “weather” weather… from leaving here this morning in bright sunshine after I washed the ice of the windows of the car and half an hour down the road to run into rain and from there experience fog, mist, drizzle, rain, heavy rain and very heavy rain the rest of the way and all the way back again

    I AM grateful for the pleasure of seeing all the newly washed shades of greens and greys in the trees and ferns, for the glimpse of the glorious yellow of wattle flowers, the purple of the hardenbergia, the white of the heath, earlicheer and soeil’d’or narcissus and even glorious orange sumach leaves still hanging on a tree (travelling slower in the rain lets me notice even more of my surroundings)

    I AM grateful for the lovely smells from the flowers, the freshness of rain, wood smoke from a bonnie … all such memory evocative soul food – especially great after being cooped up in an airconditioned highrise in the city.

    I AM grateful for the amazing SCIO session I had with Suzette and especially grateful for her courage and persistence to go in a different direction and with the opportunities; my courage in being open for her to do so; and my letting go of so much “stuff” with her gentle guidance, and her excitement when I did so. She gives interesting little tips and suggestions as well. Thank you Suzette.

    I AM grateful for the opportunity for a brief catchup visit with Elizabeth (with more material around The Secret) before I headed home

    I AM grateful I allowed myself to take a little detour to the Lyre Bird Hill Winery, taste just 4 of the wines on offer and to purchase two bottles of unwooded chardonnay (one to introduce my doctor to as she considers herself to be an ABC drinker as I was until I discovered cool climate chardonnay)

    I AM grateful for the wonderfully warm welcome at the Hard Loch Café when I stopped in for a Cappuccino both going down and coming back (the gluten free, egg free, pistachio, fig and sultana cake was pretty fantastic too)

    I AM grateful for my nice warm heaters while I catch up with my e-mails while I wait up to watch the Rugby test late tonight

    I AM grateful I have redefined my affirmations and my ideal man for a lasting relationship.

    I AM grateful for all the abundance in my life and for all that is flowing through me

    I AM grateful a project is starting to crystallise for me….

    I AM grateful I still have two days to look forward to spending however takes my fancy (although domestics and orchids seem likely to be beckoning)

    I AM grateful that Susie’s here with another contribution… I have missed you Susie but its great news that you have so much happening and to look forward to.

    I am grateful for the gorgeous spray tan I’ve had done for the play this week…I can pretend I’ve been on holidays.
    I am grateful to be inside as I can hear hail on the roof at the moment.
    I am incredibly grateful for all the wonderful wishes for me to enjoy opening night – how lovely that people have remembered.
    I am grateful that I feel so calm, as I know I have prepared to the best of my ability and accepted the last minute changes that have the potential to diminish my performance as a challenge to excel even more!
    I am grateful for the people who have surprised me who will be coming along tonight…and other nights as well.
    I am grateful that even though my mother has had a mishap, that I have allowed my brothers to shoulder the responsibility to create the solutions needed, as frankly, I am happy to be outside the problems (and to be here – in peace!)
    I am grateful that even though I have had some thoughts of wonder as to whether my character in the play will be portrayed to her maximum advantage, the words of encouragement from others (and myself) have brought me to a place of acceptance – whatever will be will be!
    I am grateful for the long, refreshing walk I had this morning and that the sun was shining – just for me it seems, because as soon as I was under cover, the rain started.
    I am grateful for the grateful chain.
    I am grateful that Ann has the courage and care enough to give me feedback, that I may not always agree with, but find extremely valuable…and in the last case, have acted on it!
    I am grateful that I can listen to feedback as a way to grow, change and learn and not as criticism…I look forward to it these days and am always waiting to see who will have the courage to speak up!
    I am grateful that I have confidence in my abilities even though sometimes, the results might not be what I was anticipating.

    I am grateful my friends understand when I am having a down day/week and need some time on my own being totally selfish and indulging in a ‘woe is me’ time.

    I am so grateful that I have finally found out who rainbow is…and it was such a delight to have her come to our opening night last night.
    I am incredibly grateful for the massive amount of support, via e-mail and phone calls yesterday, from people wishing me well.
    It’s so nice that people remember me and are thoughtful like that.
    I really appreciate the support and the contact from so many of you…it means a great deal to me!
    I am grateful for a pleasing opening night, with a good response from the crowd, a satisfied and excited cast, a pleased director and playwrite.
    I am grateful that I filmed myself beforehand, because it gave me a tremendous amount of confidence before I went on stage…as I have tended to be over-critical of my performances (high expectations of myself!) and I’m still OK to have high expectations and the more I find ways to reaffirm to myself that I am great, then the more relaxed I will feel.
    I am grateful for the excited feelings I had after filming myself and that I mostly experienced a calm confidence.
    I am especially grateful to the judge who singled me out at the end of the night to compliment my talents profusely – that meant a lot too…
    I am grateful I’ve had the time to come on here before I go to Melbourne and then to the second performance tonight.

    I am grateful for the blue skies and sun today.
    I am grateful that what kept me from posting yesterday was good!
    I am grateful to have shared a hug with Elizabeth after her first performance. She did do an exceptionally good job – not just as a ‘first timer’ but her performance stands in its own right. Congratulations.
    I am grateful that my dear friend David also has done so well in his performance. I am grateful that he is nothing like the character he is portraying!
    I am grateful for the loving and open relationship I have with my boys.
    I am grateful that my ex and I can maintain our friendship.
    I am grateful for the support I have recieved which helped me make a leap into a new creative activity.

    I AM grateful for the busy days and very early to bed nights over the past week … even though it has kept me away from my PC and writing out the gratefuls I have verbalised many times daily.

    I AM grateful I was able to competently handle a difficult problem, requiring me to take responsibility for proactive remedial actions outside of my jurisdiction because it was the right thing to do, even though it delayed me finishing for the day and I needed to go in very early the next day to make sure it was all cleaned up properly.

    I AM grateful for all my safe travel at all different hours during this time

    I AM grateful the walks to and from the station have been very cold, that lazy wind and even some milder weather, or at least where I can see the stars and admire the last quarter of the moon in an almost cloudless sky

    I AM grateful I was able to “rescue” some bunches of flowers … I have really enjoyed the white alstromeria and especially the perfume of the earlicheer jonquils

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to accept an invitation to attend another new Demartini presentation – The Secret Behind The Secret and take a friend for free next Wednesday night

    I AM grateful that Sandra is delighted to have been asked and that we did get to travel home together on one day

    I AM grateful I could get away from work early enough on Friday to stop off at the RSL in time for the raffles and a lovely warm chicken salad (it has the loveliest dressing) for Dinner

    I AM grateful for the greetings and company of my new friends as we enjoyed the new band and lots of dancing (even if they kept changing beat through a song)

    I AM grateful for the opportunity to see my nephew on Saturday morning when he was in Melbourne this weekend … even though it meant another trip to city on a non-workday.

    I AM grateful he looked in a CD/DVD shop … I found a new CD by BoneyM, my most favourite band, with some different tracks from the others I have

    I AM grateful I accepted the invitation to attend a sales presentation on Saturday afternoon and be rewarded for my time with $75 petrol vouchers even though I didn’t buy and walked very long distances from public transport to get there and back home again

    I AM grateful for the painkillers to take care of the aches after all that walking and dancing

    I AM grateful for my son letting me know my grandson had a very good Rugby Union Colleges tournament on the Gold Coast, his team, Marlborough College from NZ placed fifth with three wins and three losses. They had lost their top 4 players to the NZ South Island Representative team so didn’t place as high as expected and that meant Phillip got more game time than expected – he played all but 5 minutes total gametime.

    I AM grateful I was able to go shopping at Southland yesterday and sort out some of my confusion over which memory cards fitted which readers in which peripheral. I will now be able to get on with putting some slide shows together with music to go into my “digiframe” for display

    I AM grateful for the head, neck, shoulders, back massage I treated myself to …I sure had some knots that feel so much better now

    I AM grateful that I will find it much easier to practise my dancing at home now that I found and bought myself three by three CD packs of Hits of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with lots of the frequently played songs at the RSL

    I AM grateful there is another 3 cymbidium plants out in flower and that they are now sharing my living room with me so I can really appreciate their beauty. Of the 9 inside now there are 22 spikes out in flower (11 of them on one plant). Another 6 plants are nearly out so will have to make more room for them by the weekend.

    I AM grateful I made time to try out the new mini tripod with my camera on Sunday afternoon. After I checked the flowers in the garden, and the orchids that are out I then went for a little drive down the street and had a lot of fun taking over 200 photos … some of which are truly magnificent, especially some of the indigenous coastal banksia, some other banksias, orchids and other flowers

    I AM grateful that Margaret called me while I was out taking the photos. It was a lovely surprise to be able to catch up with what has been happening in her life over the past three and a half months since we last enjoyed each other’s company at a Quality Party on 1st April.

    I AM grateful I filled the car up with petrol and then decided to succumb to temptation (as I hadn’t eaten all day) go on down to Mornington for dinner …

    I AM grateful John looked after me so well again, spoiling me with tastings of three wines before I decided on the one to go with the roast beef dinner … and then the little muscat to go with the coffee … all delicious and I did dawdled slowly through the meal to ensure my alcohol level would be legal

    I AM grateful I stopped off in the layby on Olivers Hill on my way home to enjoy one of my favourite sights … lights across the water, and then went back to where I had taken some of the banksia photos to try some more in total darkness with the flash … interesting …!!!

    I AM grateful that I have options for downloading the photos from my camera, especially when I have mislaid the USB key that the XD card fits into (and I didn’t have to look for the cable either)

    I AM grateful I have now made the time to write these gratefuls all ready to download a week of e-mails as I admired the pictures I took (photos on the laptop, writing and e-mails on the desktop) until it all came to a halt when my PC went into a big freeze … and I hadn’t saved this list of gratefuls

    I AM grateful I decided to leave the PC on when I went to bed hoping for a miracle that it would get over its hissey fit and I would be able to save the document before I went to work this morning … because it did … even though it wouldn’t recognise the memory stick for me to transfer the data so I could have posted this from work

    I AM grateful I could flip the power switch to off and come home tonight and switch it back on,that I didn’t have to write everything from scratch again but just recover the saved document and edit it and now post it … while 9 days of e-mails download (I have been able to check them from work and clean out most of the rubbish)

    I AM grateful for a very welcome special e-mail and for the anticipation of making an appropriate response for the gift of open honesty and the trust implicit in that

    I AM grateful for taking the opportunity to telephone my sister in NZ tonight to find out how my Dad is recovering from his surgery and am very surprised and pleased to hear that he will be going into respite care at Wallingford while Miriam is having a few days off for a trip to Singapore later this week to a Convention

    I AM really grateful to be able to read all the great posts here since I last joined you. It is great to hear all the good news and lovely things that are happening in all your lives

    I AM grateful Elizabeth’s opening night went so well and hope each performance since has been really great too. I am only sorry I won’t have the opportunity to attend.

    I AM grateful it is now time to slip between the sheets, beautifully warmed by the electric blanket, ready for a good sleep and another day to be grateful for all that happens … or doesn’t happen …

    I am grateful for music.
    I am grateful for heaters and warm clothes.
    I am grateful that for the third morning in a row, all my children were ready and organised on time.
    I am grateful for the friendship I share with D that enables me to wake him up and sit on his bed and chat!
    I am grateful for the great review of Stringlines:
    “After interval, the play becomes dramatic and the hidden links in the story are revealed, supported by growing tensions and some surprising twists.
    The ending is quite wistful and unusual, with the spotlight on pivotal character Kaye, performed by Elizabeth Richardson.
    Although Stringlines is Elizabeth’s stage debut, she is very natural and convincing in her role of a woman who loves her man but lives in difficult circumstances that are contrary to her preferred setting.
    Elizabeth proves to have a delightful voice when she performs the play’s song by Rob Ellis about “outback blues in the deep red centre of my heart” and she also makes good use of her freshly acquired guitar playing skills.” The Mirror 18-7-07

    I am grateful for good foresight and Daniels intelligence that keeps me facing in the most feasible directions.
    I am grateful for my insistence on having just the right format and facilities.
    I am grateful to be so excited about it.

    I am really grateful for the positve and happy thoughts that I’m having now despite things not going quite the way I thought they mightand I’m so grateful forhaving the flexibility to accept change the way I have.
    I am grateful for the abundance of loving energy I have to give right now…and for the people who are willing to receive it.
    I am grateful to have learned that this feeling of vulnerability that I’m experiencing in the moment, allows me an opportunity to make a change.
    I am grateful for taking the time to re-write my life plan in three different areas of life…which also probably account for the changes that are occurring and the vulnerability I’m feeling.
    I am grateful for being able to allow my future to manifest in whatever way it needs to without an attachment to any particular outcome…kind of feels exciting (if I put a slight twist on the vulnerable feeling).
    A huge grateful for being able to notice my self thinking of problems today and instead of berating myself, just noticed them, changed them to a happy thought and allowed myself to trust I would uncover a solution. The solution came in the form of, all of a sudden, noticing I was inconsciously thinking of happy thoughts…of which I congratulated myself…a big change for me…and a welcome one.
    I am grateful for having a few extra special happy thoughts to draw from…especially of my darling daughter who I just shared a big hug with.

    I am grateful to have found another thing in common with Lakisha…as my most favourite books are Conversations With God…I have yet to see the movie…but it just reminds me how grateful I am that I discovered those books just when I needed them the most.
    I am grateful for the time I took to study and devour the contents and how freeing it was for me to have the words resonate right from the very first paragraph I read on the back cover.
    I am grateful for the peaceful feeling in my relationship and for attracting another amazing human being to be connected with.

    I am grateful for being asked a question today that made me think about the things I do to re-charge my body, mind and spirit…and for the mini-article that was written in response to that question.
    I am incredibly grateful for the distinction and clarity I received in that I no longer have to solve people’s problems…and that resolution comes because of who I AM not what I do…that’s such an exciting place for me to get to.
    Thanks for being here again Lakisha…you sure can do it…!
