Today I was on my way to the movies, and really noticed the beautiful green, lush grape vineyards. I was amazed just how beautiful they were against the blue sky.
I thought to myself how "grateful" I was to have my eyesight. It hit me hard....for some reason. I was just curious as to what others are grateful for each day.

I am grateful for choral music, and the ability to make a joyful noise unto God all ye lands.
Linda- I get these ocular or retinal migraines too. I discussed them with my eye doc on Tues. He said it is caused by a sudden constriction of the vessels in the eye lasts up to 30 min and then the vessels dilate and it disappears. I told him I get a yellow kidney shaped "blob" in the middle of my eyes and can' see anything for a few minutes. He said taking a Beta-blocker helps with the constriction. I do take a Beta- blocker ( metoprolol). He also said they aren't really dangerous. I hope this info is helpful.
Kindness and Compassion from others. Has made me stronger.
I am a 48yo male with type 1 since I was 3 and MS since I was 44. I am grateful foe my 29yo stepdaughter Louise Ann Aliberti from Brewster NY. I am now divorced from her mother but still love here even tough I am well over 100 miles away. I am on the medtronic Insulin Pump for 4 years now. I am thankful I am still living

Today is my 13th D-anniversary, and I am very grateful to be complication free after 13 years. When I look back over these 13 years they seemed to go quickly, but the days went very slowly. I am grateful to have so many friends here on TuD to talk to and share life with. We really are a family with D as the magnet drawing us together. I hope to be here for many more years giving and getting support. Thanks to all of you. Cat

AWESOME Cat!! Happy for you dear friend :)

Let's I'm thankful that I didn't kill my husband after he fell in the bathroom and whinned all day (AGAIN!!!) LOL!

Congrats Cat!! Honored to have you as my friend. xo

After a bad night with nausea and light-headedness and persistently high BGs from a stomach that refused to empty for 12 hours, I got some good sleep today, and feel well enough to go play Renaissance music with my friends. So I'm grateful that bad times (usually) pass.

Wow...I looked at the post I wrote in 2009..."Grateful to have my eyesight". Boy, how things changed. Sept 2010 is when I had my eye hemorrhage. Long road...But, I am getting my eyesight BACK in my right eye. So...I am VERY Grateful to say the least, for every day I can see the beauty around me.

good for your robyn! and good for you for keeping your "eyes" open to gratitude, kindness and compassion, all these qualites help us cope and lighten our burden ..wishing your well amy

I am so very grateful that my husband found a job Friday. :)

It made me realize how easy it is to take for granted your job and the financial security that it provides...and just how quickly it can be taken away. I'm also grateful that his new job has great insurance benefits even though we're both covered under my employers insurance currently. You just never know when the tables will be turned and we will need his insurance.
