Exactly what I thought when I first read this chain  I want to surround myself with positive thoughts and actions.  Take healing to a greater level.

this is a fantastic idea for a thread! i'm new here and reading through everything i can find....

have you seen this site? http://www.gogratitude.com/

it's a 42 day experiment all about gratitude. they email you once a day for 42 days with different ideas, thoughts, poems, etc.  i've been doing it for a couple of days and i love it. it's a little different, but i'm getting into it. i think you will too

anyway, i'm very grateful that i've stumbled upon this site, because i have learned a lot, and i feel much better about what i'm going through, just by knowing i'm not alone

i'm grateful for;

my family and friends who love and support me in so many ways
my wonderful boyfriend who really knows me
finally paying the may mortgage yesterday, and i have a whole 13 days to find money for the june payment. (i am not grateful for disability checks being so small)
my health, other than the knees
my health insurance, that pays my bills
my physical therapist
burning man
not having to go to work
that eating ginger is helping my pain


thats all my befuddled brain can come up with at 2 am

Excellent idea Jennifer ..... well here goes.

I am grateful that I finally got to meet PATIENCE for the very first time
Which is strange considering I've been friends with her twin IMPATIENCE for as long as I can remember.

I am grateful for my religion and to GOD for healing me

I am grateful for my family who love and support me

I am grateful cause I have found out who my true friends are
 
I am grateful that I am able to walk again (even with a limp)

I am grateful that I got my OS to smile

I am grateful that I am alive and haven't lost my sense of humour 

I am grateful that I have learned not to leave things for tomorrow, cause tomorrow might never come

I am grateful for finding this website and other people who really understand what I'm going through and are there to listen and give advice.
 
And I have learned that when faced with any situation, not to be too quick to judge and to always remember that life is a test ( the good and the bad). There is nothing that happens for no reason, our brains are just not gifted enough to understand these reasons yet.

I am grateful for the people in my life who have given me such amazing support, but physically -- meals and rides to work and doctors appointments and electronically -- yes, all you guys. 

I am grateful for a PCP who thinks I am funny.

I am grateful for an understanding partner.

I am grateful for knee problem, because without it I would never have got to the bottom of my ironing pile for the first time in about three years, found some stuff today I'd forgotten I owned. Found some stuff belonging to my daughter with age 9-10 on it, she's 12 very soon!!! lol  :-[
I know I'm a slut but i bet i'm not the only one out there.
