Dear Alicia, your post makes me feel I am in company, I also wake up at 2 in the morning because my body got used to it. It was quiet and it was the only time I could work, as my daughter was homeschooled. Now she has started school, but here I am, awake because “the body remembers”. Thanks for sharing your gratefulness for the simple beauties of the early morning.
Thank you, dear Diane. Dear Pilgrim, I join in sending strength. I’ve been through a big move myself. Blessings
Hello dear Diane, it’s good to see you. I think of you and everyone, especially on Prayer Tuesdays. I couldn’t be here yesterday, I spent the whole day doing bus rides for paperwork with my daughter and was exhausted at the end of the day, but grateful for all the kindness I encounter in every office and every bus, and for the mother-daughter time too.
It’s so beautiful, Holly. Thank you
She is turning 11 this month, so I am holding tight, waiting for the teenage years
How beautiful, Cintia. It must be so rewarding to do this work. I admire that you transformed pain into service. Many blessings to you
Thank you, Alicia, from my heart. I hope things are going well on your side. I think of you, dear friend.
I am fascinated by mushrooms too, Holly. Thanks for the pictures, and thank you so much for your cheerful wishes below! 🙂 I was surprised myself, although I had been thinking about the move for a long time… I am trying to get my daughter to start school. Then I can work and have more time to share. It has been intense (not to say exhausting) having her full time, but wonderful too. Blessings to you, my friend.
Yes, Anna! I am here. And I am already jumping with anticipation at the prospect of our meeting. Sending a big virtual.hug back to you 🙂
Dear Pilgrim, thank you for your message, it means a lot to me. Yes, a wondrous gift, my heart is full. I have been longing to be close to my family for many years. I am conscious that the move happened by grace, so I take nothing for granted, and I walk giving thanks.
I was in South Africa before, and I am grateful for all the gifts I received in this beautiful land, it was a learning ground.
Thank you, and blessings to you, dear friend.
Beautiful Christine, it’s like fairy land
Holly, you make me feel better in spite of not getting everything done 🙂
Cintia, it’s good to see you!
Anna, I have news that I have been meaning to share with everyone. I have moved to Italy with my daughter, about 12 days ago, and have been busy with her (in quarantine) and now with paperwork. I am two towns away from my parents, and my sister is around for three months, she has helped me so much. I am grateful. Thank you, dear friend, for thinking of me, and for prompting me to write, as it often happens:) You inspired me for the move, because when you came to this region, I thought why am ...

I get inspired from everyone here, in spite of not writing too often.
Thank you, Serafina and everyone on gratefulness.org, from my heart 🙏❤️
Alicia! I hadn’t noticed the coincidence. Thank you, so beautiful, my heart is melted too. Love and blessings ❤️🙏
Drew, what a great picture, the place and the community look wonderful. I also spotted you! 😃💕
Haha Mica 😂 I am so thrilled and touched, thank you for your message! I also kept thinking about Br David’s teachings while reading the book because Jill Bolte talks about the relationship between the 4th character and gratefulness, which seemes to be the key for connecting to the divine. And isn’t it empowering to know that we have a choice (anatomically) on how we respond? Sending a hug 🤗
Wow “You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves” I never noticed this phrase, so incredibly beautiful… thanks, Mike
Dear Mica, I hadn’t been in the Lounge and only saw your message now, thank you. I didn’t read My Stroke of Insight, I got the kindle of Whole Brain Living and that’s where I saw the name Queen Toad. It is fun and fascinating!
