All,
 
Many of us seem to be going through an especially rough time right now.  I thought it might be helpful to share those things that we can still be grateful for or that give a little ray of light into the darkness right now.  Trying to pick out something good or wholesome even at the wosrt times can sometimes be that life preserver we need to hang onto just a little longer.
 
I'm grateful for the support of my husband.  He may not understand health anxiety, but he is here beside me every step of the way with his love and compassion.  I know that I am very fortunate to have him in my life, expecially right now.
 
I'm also glad for ordinary life events like my nephews competing in sports that they enjoy and then immediately phoning to share their excitement about how they did.
 
Go ahead, all, what are your rays of light?

cool   My ray of light is always my grandchildren.  They are young and funny and they are outspoken and they even think Gma is pretty.  Kids see the souls of people not the physical appearance of each new wrinkle...............
 
They are my my sunshine on a cloudy day.

Percy,

What a great thread. :-)

I'm grateful for the fact that spring is here.....I can hear the birds singing, see the plants coming up from the ground, and I know that I don't have to wear my winter coat and boots for a while. I'm grateful for my pets....for their companionship and unconditional love. I'm grateful for friends, and sharing laughter with them. I'm grateful that I live in a small community, where people wave to each other on the road and visit with each other in the grocery store. I'm grateful that I have a job, and can afford to buy fresh food and pay my bills. And....I'm grateful for this HW community, with so many caring and compassionate people who offer up love and advice to both longtime members and newcomers.

Bringing this one back to the top: I just got rid of that nasty globus sensation in my throat for a bit. Thank goodness for Nexium.

Also, my husband just laid next to me and held me this morning when I was feeling low. It really comforted me. What a blessing he is!

Percy,

Can I borrow your husband?  redface

I want to dedicate this little ditty to Percy smilewinkgrin

You brought a ray of sunshine to my life
And I smiled from ear to ear
Thinking of you is what I do each day
To savour the special moments in every way

Where have you been all my life?

~Author Dove ~

Hugs,
Kitt

I am greatful to my Daughters, having them gives me the determination not to be swallowed up in self pity.
I am greatful to my Husband for telling me "theres nothing wrong with you" and never saying "I told you so" when hes proved right
and I'm greatful for the anxiety free days I've had....and without sounding cheesy I am greatful for this forum, even though I've only recently found it and so greatful to the people who share their stories.

I am grateful to be as healthy as I am, to have a roof over my head, food in the cupboard and to have people that actually care about me :)

My children are my little rays of light. They are my reason for fighting this thing called anxiety. I hate for my son to see me cry but when I am going through a panic attack he always tells me mommy its alright he is such a sweetheart. My daughter just looks at me with her happy face and I feel better.
This too shall pass...

My children are definitely little rays of light! A new ray of light has been my husband...we have had some major struggles the past few years and we are finally in a good place, so that's extremely comforting.

Like Sam, a roof over my head and food to eat!

Random tv shows that distract me and take me away for a moment like Ghost Hunters, Monster Hunters, and all the other random reality animal/survival/paranormal shows that my husband LOVES and I have joined in to watch :)

Waiting for the blooms to burst on our first bulb planting attempt. My daughter and I look out the window at the sprouts every morning waiting for that first flower!

I'm grateful for the rainstorm yesterday that has turned most of my lawn from yucky old brown into a carpet of emerald green and helped my hyacinths and daffodils pop!
 
I'm also grateful that the weather is supposed to be near 80 this weekend - almost unheard of in New England in April!

Hey Dixi,
 
I'm with you on the green lawn effect!  I actually went for a walk in the yard in my bare feet, and reveled in the feeling of freshly soaked grass between my toes.  We're supposed to get warm, sunny weather this weekend, too, and I'm really looking foward to it!  :-)
 
Happy Earth Day!
