Reading this is like being a little lizard in the sun -- bring on the 'shine!

This makes my day, and given it's still morning, I've got the entire day to take it in.

I love you, my grateful friend -- I'm grateful with you.

Baruch HaShem! I am so grateful right along with you, my dearest of friends! G-d is so very, very good.

He truly does work all things for the good - I'm continually amazed after the long period of darkness and pain. Yes, I'm grateful!

I am grateful that G-d has prepared a loving, accepting place for us to go, and has prepared tasks for us to do in His service. He is so good to us! Good-bye judgement, condemnation and exclusion!

I'm grateful for friends who are willing to reveal their struggles and joys so that my life is enriched by theirs. And I can contribute a little to buffer their discomforts. Thus we increase the quality of all our lives. :-)
