Gratitude Journal #167

Today, I am grateful for God, our Light in dark places.

Today, I am grateful for healing, an uneven and sometimes slow process.

Today, I am grateful for children and for those who serve them with love and protection and help in times of distress. Today in particular, I am grateful for our police department, who will be present at our schools today to help the children feel safe.

Today, I am grateful for Christmas, for its celebration and giving, its joy and peace, its newborn child lying in a manger.

Today, I am grateful that my mother is coming to visit this week. I need my mom.

Today, I am grateful for preparation, for work, for time spent in service to others.

What are you grateful for today?


  1. I am grateful for ...
    ... normal days
    ... girls safely back for the holidays
    ... my mother here for her 1st Mauritian Christmas

  2. This may come off sounding a little smart alec-y, which is really not my intent, but I'm feeling very grateful to live in a society that does not consider bearing arms a right.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
