I'm grateful for...

537 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  peacefulmom
Hey mamas, haven't been around too much...feeling very overwhelmed and angry and sad. I'm trying to be grateful for all I do have, but I have a hard time saying I'm grateful when I want something more. I'm trying to develop more of a sense of gratitude & I figured y'all might want to join me.

So I'll go first...

I'm grateful that I have a healthy, beautiful daughter.
I'm grateful that I've been able to spend the first four years of her life home with her.
I'm grateful that I have my mother to lean on & watch Hannah while I go to school.

: could we please keep this thread here please and not move it. i think as single moms some of our perspectives will be different. thanks

: bu's mama.

i am most grateful right now for having the ability to live in the present, to be able to focus on what i have rather than what i dont have. i am soooo, soooo grateful i am finally able to 'see' that finally.

i am so, so grateful too for the time i have on my hand now while i am jobless. just the time itself is making it clearer for me to concentrate what a life i want mine to be and who am i and what i want out of life. it is soo deeply satisfying to just have the time to think.

i am grateful for the time i am finally able to spend with my dd.

i am grateful for not stressing out.
