I feel such gratitude and thanksgiving this year, even though Mom is dying.

I am grateful for you, readers of Couple's Net.

I am grateful for being healthy.

I am grateful for love.

I am grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.

I am grateful for nature which rejuvenates me.

I am grateful for all of you who work in small, medium, or large ways to make other's lives better.

I am grateful for couples who love each other and are willing to do the work to create and sustain healthy relationships.

I am grateful for writers, who give me so much pleasure when I read their work.

I am grateful for musicians, as the sound vibrates through my body and reaches my heart and soul.

I am grateful for my orange cat and black & white dog: we give each other companionship, humor and love.

I am grateful for each breath; in and out, slowly.

I am grateful.

I look at my work as dropping a pebble in a pond. The ripples continue beyond what I can see. I hope my work helps others drop a pebble in a pond . . .
