I appreciate my family - my husband, our daughters and granddaughters (and son-in-law), our critters. I appreciate every breath I take, my doctor, surgeon, oncologists, and the radiation oncology dept who helped me so much. I appreciate the beauty of the place we live and I work, our dear friends and the people I work with every day. I appreciate the researchers who developed the diagnostic tools and medicines that are helping women (and men) survive breast cancer. I also appreciate all the friends I've made here.

I appreciate what nature has to offer - the abundance of herbs, wild greens, wild mushrooms, seasonal fruits etc that make it possible for us to enrich our culinary experience.

I appreciate good health...and wish I hadn't learnt the hard way what a wonderful toast "to your good health" is, I appreciate my family, and roll my eyes at my teenage years, if only I had known then what I know now, I appreciate my darling animals, who love me when I find it hard too and are the most beautiful people I've seen, and I appreciate my husband every single day (especially as he is flying home in 9 days time for four WHOLE days for our house removal). I appreciate my computer which allows me the freedom to come here and learn how to show how much I appreciate my husband, friends and family by cooking good food for them. I appreciate nature and hate what we are doing to it....and yet I still appreciate the plane that's bringing my DH home for a visit.

I so agree with Tattrat!! Every day is a true blessing and whatever it may bring; good or bad, is something to appreciate and learn from. I am one that believes that everything happens for a reason; even if the reason may not be seen for some time but all happens for a reason.

This is such a lovely thread. sometimes when I am stressed or depressed I lie in bed and "count my blessings" like my beautiful healthy children, my DH who loves me even though I have trouble loving myself, a job I love etc etc There were times like when my mum died when it was harder to see the good but I agree with Shunka that everything happens for a reason and sometimes it takes a long time for you to be able to see that reason.
I also appreciate the people on this site who are wise, caring, helpful, loving and FUN!!!

I appreciate my friends, my condo, my health except for the arthritis, Jolie who is the love of my life and just creating positive thoughts each day.

I always go one day at a time and it helps.
