    The relationships with my dear friends and of course my dear sister, who are so kind to be with me when times are difficult as well as sharing precious moments of togetherness. Deeply grateful for their presence in my life.

    My grandmothers who have died. They were so much fun and gave of their hearts and lots of love to us kids. It inspires me to be connected to family and friends with an open loving heart and soul.

    My sense is I am thankful for them all, living and dead. They have flavoured me nourished me and/or taught me; or are doing so.

    My mom. I still see her in dreams and we often hug in them. It’s amazing how vividly I recall her, even details like the warmth and texture of her skin, what’s odd to me is she always is really symbolic in my dreams … she’s always pointing me towards compassion and kindness, it’s weird she always seems to be gesturing me to go that way and she seems to most appear in dreams when I’m trying to be more of service to others while she almost vanishes from my dreams except like these cautionary dreams when I become more focused just on my own goals.

    I am thankful for friends and colleagues especially today as I need to rely on them as my car was vandalized yesterday and as I will have no car to use for a while.

    Having an adult son is an immense source of gratitude. I raised him as a single mother since he was 10 and we have so many shared experiences, good and bad. To be able to talk about those times with laughter and tears makes every moment with him special. The bonus is he has a wonderful wife and sons with whom I share a great relationship. Beyond that, I’m blessed to have supportive relationships with my sisters and close friends. We surround each other with positive affirmations frequently. I cannot be thankful enough!

    I am thankful for all my friends. They are each talented and accomplished in their own ways. I have been friends with some of them for 30+ years! What a privilege and an honor to know them.

    I am thankful for the companionship of the people in the Gratitude Lounge and for all of you here in this “room.” You teach me tenderness, wisdom, kindness, and humanity. You lift my spirits many a day. I am glad you are here.

    I’m also grateful for my husband – 11 years and counting! I don’t know how to describe that in words, but it just makes my heart well up! I’m grateful for my children and the kind of people they are becoming excites me. Each of them is different and their own self-made person, and I love getting to know who they are! I am also grateful for my brother, my last surviving member of my “first family,” and really, a fairly new relationship for us as we grew up mostly apart and he was emotionally distant until recently. Having that relationship now is something I treasure, and we are growing closer and mutually benefitting from sharing our commonality.

    I have dear friends, too. I feel very blessed these days, or is it perhaps that gratitude helps me to see what was always within reach? ❤

    My family – kids and grandkids, sisters, and in-laws; and my 6 best friends of the last 60 years;. I am thankful for many others who were and are the “saints” in my life – mentoring, befriending me during different passages of life, career, parenting, etc. They are all still dear.

    All of them – from the deep relationships to the casual ones. They are all in my life for a reason. But the deep ones, I am most grateful for, as these are the people I can share anything with from joys to fears, and they celebrate or hold my hand as needed. My husband, my parents, my brother and sisters… these are the people I am most connected to, and I love them so much.

    I treasure every relationship that I have with people in my life. There’s a handful of people whom I know but do not have what one would consider a “relationship” with, and I am comfortable with that, also.

      I read something once that brought your point into perspective. It was how we have perhaps only five really close friends at any one time. I think we may feel we have to have a lot of friends and be popular to be successful. We can be friendly, friend-like, to tens, maybe hundreds even regularly, but to be close in an intimate, honest, and fully ourselves way is a very different matter. Soul contracts, deep connections, are of such value. I am fine with that too, Kevin. I look at it as, can I share my life with this person, can they be privy to my death? Can I reciprocate those ways of being too? Not a lot of us will get or give those states, and that is okay…

    Such a meaningful question for today …. I am thankful for the relationships I formed while volunteering at CMA when I first moved to Florida. Sadly, Winter the dolphin passed away last night. CMA had her from when she was just 2 months old to 16. Even though I volunteered in the sea turtle dept., she was the main attraction and even more so after the movies were made. RIP Winter. You will be missed by so many.

    With Karel, my husband. He passed away, but I feel so very strongly conected with him. There is much comfort in this feeling. Sometimes people tell me that it is time to let him go. They do not know that real love is for ever, that love always will stay with you. 💕

      That’s wonderful, Christine, that you still are comforted by your connection with Karel. Silly people, telling you otherwise! Warm wishes to you – 🙂

          When my sister died, Christine, I found it helped me to “save up new memories” of my life so I could share them with her when we were reunited. I still do this. You and Karel were very special together; of course he will always be with you. ❤

    The relationships I have with my children, my husband, all those people who helped us out so much when Covid was at it’s peak in our lives. That experience has changed my relationships with so many people, and I am so grateful for their help during a very difficult time. To me, those people who helped us-some of them I didn’t even know before-are now our friends.
    Overall, these past two years has changed many relationships in our lives.

    There are so many for so many reasons. The ones I value the most are the ones I consider to be very real. Honest, vulnerable, fun, irreverent, holy, and a tad crazy. Where tears are as welcome as laughs, and when there is kindness at the heart of the relationship, they seem to grow beautifully.
