With much gratitude to all and a knowingness that all is well. Kindness, compassion and love for one another and our planet is why I’m here.
Through prayer and request for guidance. Stepping away from a toxic situation instead of swallowing resentment and hurt. Sometimes realizing others are not capable of being kind and it’s time for me to find the courage I need to move on. That’s where I am right now. Prayers requested to Gratefulness members. <3

Bed and bow
Up and down
Wind and leaves
Clouds and raine
Peace be and be
I love this practice of brief bits of words that allow me to express myself, or create a scene. I’ve really enjoyed reading others words and art in all its forms. Thank you everyone. 💗
Thank you Kristi and Gratefulness Staff and Community… I’m grateful for breath, trees. Grandson, my children, Alicia and Richard..my husband Steve, the mountains that surround me. Grateful to God, Jesus, my beloved friend and brother. 💗🌻🌲🌈
Being in a community of people who share their experience, strength and hope reminds me of my humanity. Asks of me to show up and participate, to serve and share my experience, strength and hope. In a variety of different communities, I give what I can give, love, listen and learn. Feeling supported in my communities helps me to accept myself where I am – imperfections and all. Grateful to be human. Grateful for choices.
It allows ‘collective’ voices to share in each others joys and sorrows. It’s a wonderful gift to know someone is keeping me in prayer, and I believe those in my community are comforted by my prayers for them. Praying for those here in the Gratefulness.org community to have a day of peace.
Pond gurgles outside my window
Weed-wacker wacks the edge of the long green grass
sunlight shines on the fresh red maple leaves
dawn has arrived
rises from the river
dancing in the atmosphere
I enjoy my drive along the rivers edge.. the sunlight dances on the water and the mist from the river rises to meet the day.
Climate changing- earth blessings.
Great question. We’re all so different, yet the same. Each one of us has something to learn from another. The how is a decision to listen and learn. To open to love.
Kristin… I really felt this 💗
In a whirlwind of my own
passenger of life
My friend and mentor, Diana. Qualities – acceptance, loving, honest, true healer and embodiment of love unconditional.
Who? A fellow from another state, race, a true brother who telephones me just when I need an encouraging word. I am so grateful for him and his support and prayers.
Jeana – I like the physical aspect of gaining perspective. Thank you.
Thank you Jeana. I, too, feel connected with many here over the past few years. Some years ago I lived in Bavaria, and Gruss Gott means ‘Greetings to the God within you’. I thought you might appreciate this as with Namaste. Shalom. Anita
Me too Bob!
Carla – thanks for the ‘reality check’ – the best I can do varies from day to day….
