lala's grateful thread
Frieda asked me to start a thread in her forum. I wanted to make it a good one, so here it is.
This is based on a book called "Simple Abundance". Every day, post five (more if you like, but no less) things that you're grateful for. It's okay to repeat, but not on the same day (for example, you can be grateful for your friends every day, but not five times on one day :p).
So - without further ado:
my mom & stepdad
