That is so great that your parents are so close...I would love to be able to see mine a lot more often, I am looking forward to them coming to see me in October.
I like your gratitude idea...mine is kind of silly but I'm grateful that I had the guts to leave Joel! So many good things have happened since and I am finding such contentment and peace in my new life.
Love and hugs,

I would like to start a gratitude journal for our group. For those of
you who watch Oprah, you will know what I am talking about. I think
this would give us all the opportunity to remember the good things in
our lives, and put aside our pain for just a few moments.
Dear Gratitude Journal,
Today I am grateful for my parents. Until earlier this year I saw them
just once every six months or so, they lived in another state (over 16
hours drive fom my home).
I now have the pleasure of "popping in" to have a quick chat cuppa
with them every day if I choose, or spend an afternoon at the movies
with my mum, or shopping with her.
Thank you for making it possible for my parents to move back to our
town. I can now offer them practical support and love when they need
Smile as often as you can at those you love.....
and to strangers in the street.
The rewards are many.
