Good thread Dani! :)

I'm glad for John 3:16.

I'm glad that God loves me even though I don't deserve it.

I'm glad that I can paint and draw and make art.

I'm glad that God made women and not just men.

I'm glad that God made gravity so I don't fly off into space. I hear it's cold out there.

I'm glad for Muffin, the gray fur-head / cat. She kneads me when I hurt.

I'm glad my sister and her DH came to visit on Memorial Day and we got to hang out together.

I'm glad I got an early retirement offer from work. Even if it means finding another job since it ain't enough to live on.

I'm glad my mom and dad were such hard workers and taught us so much.

I'm glad I have lots of brothers and sisters to tease and bother.

I'm glad my sister is retiring and hope she likes the strap-on rocking chair adapters I got her.

I'm glad for all the people who have helped me in life even though I may not have thanked them or even understood they were helping me.

I'm glad I have celiac because I met a lot of nice people on this board and made some online friends. And because maybe I can help other people too.

I'm glad my sister figured out I had celiac when my doctor didn't. Sisters are ok.

I'm glad my feet and legs are better.

I'm glad I quit drinking. It's bad stuff for a digestive system.

I'm glad for the maple tree on the street whose leaves wave in the wind and makes shimmering patterns of light and dark on my bedroom wall.

I'm glad taxes only come once a year.

I'm glad people get better on the gluten-free diet.

I'm glad my brother with diabetes is back on his medication.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

I'm just going to say it.
You're a nice guy. Just so you know. :)

And Gee Free, I'm glad for my Mom and Daddy, too.
(yes, I called him that even into my 50's)

They taught me to be tenacious which saved my life.

and I am most grateful for my hubs.
My rock and my heartbeat.

You see, Dani, the list of things to think about when "thinking positive" is really quite endless when you start thinking about all our "gifts".

Gifts always trump troubles.

Very beautiful vibes Gee-Ef (the script turned the letters into Gluten-Free)! We have so many celiac artists here by the way. Maybe we should do some collaborative work to promote celiac awareness (when we have time.. I'm swamped with late assignments). Just a thought.

I see, yes :-) I tend to be a whiny cry-baby every time something that does not agree with my liking happens (as you might have noticed from all my vent posts), so I thought of doing something positive this time.. Which I think is perhaps God's way to prepare me for what's to come so I don't take it so hard haha :-)
As for the doc.. She didn't seem like the type of person who's open to patients correcting her. Until a better option than her pops up, I'm not gonna get on her bad side. It took me three months or maybe more to get the appointment.

I'm really so glad for having this board.

Here are more positive vibes:

I'm glad Stevia exists!

I'm glad I'm having bowel movements (lol!)

I'm glad God made lots of colorful things for me to look at. I LOVE colors :-P

I'm glad I can eat mangoes without getting bloated or agitated.

What are your positive-vibe inducing thoughts?

I focus on what I have, what I can do, and what I can eat rather than what I don't have, or can't eat, or can't do. I've learned to be thankful for what I have before it's gone.

The primary thing keeping me focused right now is school. Returning student after a several year medical leave of absence. I was so sick, and so financially strained, I thought I'd never be able to go back.

Okay, well, this post just moved me to joyful tears. IH is standing up and wildly applauding you!! :)

Those of us who "return from the dead" after years of debilitating illness are warriors.

I am thrilled for you for reclaiming your life and moving forward with purpose. I continue to do the same. One amazing day at a time, filled with gratitude.

I wish you all the best!
With admiration, IH

Agreed with IH, your post is very inspiring. Thank you for sharing it. I feel like working even harder on late school projects now. Hope all goes well for you too :-)

Wow...AMAZING thread!!! :D :D :D
You are all very insperational! :P
That being said...Isn't it amazing how our pets know JUST the right spot to drape on when you don't feel well? I had a cat...weather It was a migraine(drape against my neck and purr)...a stomacheache (drape on top of my stomache and purr)...my back...or even celiac induced leg/foot/arm cramps...he'd find the EXACT spot...unprovoked...lay on it and PURR!!! :blink: :lol: And trust me...it wasn't allways easy to get himself exactly right either...but he'd keep trying till he was satisfied!LOL! I used to call him my little chakra tuner...because my body would relax and calming waves would replace the pain as I listened to his purring...I could feel it through my wholebody!Yes I'm greatful for many,many things...I could fill pages,but I thought I would mention my little grey Boo..(TWEEK-A-BA-BOO...to be exact)!Now I'm not saying he wasn't a little bastard at times...(most creatures and humans can be)...but I'm still thankful, and I miss him...sometimes! LOL! :lol: :P :) (except when he was peeing in my shoe....attacking my neighbors dogs...or pooping behind the couch in protest for me being mad at him for peeing on my bed I just bought!...stuff like that! LOL!) :blink: :rolleyes:
When I was pregnant(13 yrs ago)...Both cats would lay on either side of my tummy while I slept(you all know a baby kicks the most when you lay down because theres no movement to lull it to sleep!)...but those two cats (Bosker,redtabby...and Boo,silvergrey)would lay on either side and PURR...conferting my son...while I rested!
Pets are so wonderful...In so many ways...definatly something to be greatful for! :)
Our latest big boy(20 pound Mainecoon) Moose is a big time draper as well. if ANY one is snuggling on the couch...he has to be right on top!And in the mornings...he wakes me up by trying to give my face a bath!...He has an extreamly ruff tounge being a long hair! He tries to clean my 13yr.olds bangs and gets it all caught in his mouth...its really funny...his heart is in the right place! :P
Sorry to go on...but several people mentioned PETS...and I couldn't agree more!
LOL!!! :D :D :D
Infact...I even printed out gfindc's post as well as one of Irishes to look at later...I was so inspired! LOL!!! THANKS GUYS!!!Great thread...EVERYONE! B)
