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 it.
-- Try this!..........
Smile as often as you can at those you love..... and to strangers in the street.
The rewards are many.
