my post about gratitude, we had a few tough days. My elder son ended up in A&E (Accidents and Emergencies at the hospital) in the middle of the night, unable to breathe. After three nights of this happening, we know the antihistamines work to control it, and we figured out it might be a "new" detergent (it was a variation on the one we always buy, but might be enough of a difference). Still, it was an added stress to him having just had major surgery. There are a couple of other complications to the surgery that are also troubling us, but not being able to breathe is always a big problem!
Anyhow, I wasn't feeling very grateful yesterday, but then read Ellen's post on it. A reminder that there are always reasons to feel grateful, and that this practice is perhaps most important precisely when it feels hardest. So, following her advice, I have started a Gratitude Journal, so I can make quick notes every day :)
I am grateful for friends who remind me that there is always joy in this life!
