THE FOOD ON MY PLATE
I've known hunger and having food on my plate at every meal,
is gift I treasure deeply.
– Pat, Stowe VT –
For being there for me in a desperate time of need, without question or hesitation, even though we barely talk or see each other. It's good to know there's good in humanity.
– Sam, Portland ME –
I'm thankful that the universe often gives us more than one chance to get something right.
– Jane, Boulder CO –
I rarely take the time to just be thankful for my life, and for all that I have. Times may be a bit rough right now, but it could be so much worse.
– Steve, Vegas –
MY DAUGHTER, LILY
She gets great grades without me needing to be involved at all AND she gives me mature, level-headed advice when I am frazzled. I would go so far as to say that at 12 and 48, we have reversed roles; she is the supportive "mother" and I am the admiring "daughter", striving to live up to her positive example.
– Kirsten, Boulder CO –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR BOOKS
They teach me, comfort me, and sometimes, they guide me.
– Liz, NY –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MY FRIENDS
Without my friends, my life would be boring. So grateful to them all for their love, support and for the many laughs.
– Karen, Santa Fe NM –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR LIVING IN A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE ARE SO WISE, COMPASSIONATE, AND LOVING.
Because both Pockitudes storytelling events featured amazing people with amazing stories, right here in my community.
– R, Boulder CO –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MUSIC
When I'm happy, I celebrate with music. When I'm sad, I get happier with music. It'd be a strange life for me without music.
– Kathy, Chicago –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MY BIKE RIDE INTO WORK
Because I finally have the opportunity to ride my bike everyday.
– Tyler, Broomfield CO –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MY WIFE
She knows me the best and I am who I am today because of HER.
– Jasper, Buffalo NY –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR ONE OF MY STUDENTS
For helping me better myself by being more impeccable with my words, and having mindfulness about what I say.
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MY FAMILY
They are the ones who believe in me the most. They are loyal and they love unconditionally.
– Mérida, Mexico –
I'M GRATEFUL FOR MY YETI BIKE
Cheap plug, I know, but I love my YETI bike. When I'm on the trails I think of nothing but how to ride in that very moment. It's a rush and there's nothing else like it. Plus, I get to be away from my fucking desk!
– Sam, Boulder CO –
