Are they thunderclouds? I am thankful for the comfort it gives me be be a part of our forum. I am thankful for the time you put into reminding me -- all of us -- to consider if we can find some small thing to be grateful for. On the days I can't do it, I read of others successes.

No just white fluffy clouds You’re awesome Nothing_but-pain

I am a little taken aback by your description of me.

So I looked it up:

awesome : adjective

extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear.

as "the awesome power of the atomic bomb"

I don't know. I hope I don't strike others as '"daunting". I sure as hell am not "extremely impressive".

Do I trigger apprehension or fear in fellow members? It is not ever my intent.. But intentions can go awry.

I do know your intent. It is from your loving heart. I can be warmed by your kindness.

No. Nope. I can't accept "awesome". I am not a saint to provoke "awe".

Maybe this: "I am Dorothy, the small and meek."

Know that whether you are Dorothy or Awesome, you are loved by all here :) xx

🍌 + 🦜 = 😱

Ive loved using the word awesome but didn’t even realize it meant all of that ... daunting -no... haha 😂 maybe now I do 😂 I just like you and find you to be a great person is all I really mean...*scooting away with eyes in back of my head 👀

That's all me, having trouble taking a compliment, nit-picking. This is not about you, never you 🌟!

You’re fun 😆

Not as much fun as a banana + green-cheeked parakeet adventure!

🍌 + 🦜 = 😱

Just try cleaning your walls, ceiling, and floor after that!

I'll pass on that lol xx

🤭 I'm still not sure if she loves bananas so much she doesn't even know what she is doing, or if something about seeing a banana just sets her off!

There is always a minute or two of her head and neck feathers bristled out in the "Look out Buster!" position, while chunks go in every direction...

before she calms down and eats -- with the top of her beak permanently sunk into the banana in case you try to move it away! It's a hoot! 🦉

😜

You described that so well, I could literally picture the scene lol

And now the mess to clean up :) xx

You have no idea how hard it is to get dried banana off paint until you've tried.🤪

I believe you :) xx

Lol!!!

👍

I'm grateful for this site. I'm grateful for my pets who never leave my side, my family, and a friend who gets it.

Imagine being that free... gliding through the sky? Talk about peace.

Starrlight
Starrlight in reply to Dolphin14

Lol I dont know I hope so... yes I’m imagining gliding with the beautiful outstretched wings splitting through the air. I see hawks as my spirit guide... whenever I see one it’s a reminder to me that good things are on the way. Wow how I crave peace right now. I think I’ll meditate 🧘‍♀️

Meditation is key to peace. Nothing else worked for me.

Namaste

Well, I talked to a homeless man the other day , who said they stole his sleeping bag. And the only thing he owns is the clothes on his back. And he was looking for somewhere to sleep. He was able to get a kids sleeping bag. However, he said he hasn’t slept in 3 days that had nowhere to lay down. So I’m thankful I have a bed and a home. Somewhere to sleep. We don’t realize how much we have until it’s gone and other people have nothing.

Omg I know. I once tried sleeping in a car in winter and I’ve slept in parks. You’re right we can forget and take things for granted.

Yes it was the other I spoke with a couple of them , but this guy really stood out my heart felt for him. The Homeless seem to be forgotten. It’s very sad

When I was a kid my aunt would take me to visit some homeless brining them things ( she recently passed away) and then as an adult I did some of that myself. No matter what we do it doesn’t seem enough does it? And I feel like we get caught up in our lives and you’re right they become forgotten. Yes very sad.

Beautiful ☺️

I can honestly say I'm most grateful for my lizards! they are truly my babies. I have one sleeping in my lap right now, and he comes out to say hello several times a day. Without them, my depression and anxiety would be eating me up. I feel like they're the only thing in the world I have that keep me sane with this world is going to hell around me. I have no friends or family to talk to, and I thank God above that I have Merlin, my bearded dragon, and Oscar, my yellow Nigerian Uromastyx, to keep me comopany and keep me sane in an insane world!😀😀😀🦎🦎🦎

That’s awesome! I love lizards . I’ve had iguanas and cone head lizards and geckos and newts too. I’m so glad they help you feel better. It’s adorable that one is sleeping in your lap!

I'm grateful for you...for all my wonderful friends on HU....for the ability to have sight, hear everything (well, almost), communication whether by talking or chatting...I'm grateful I made it through yet another day...I am so very grateful for my angelic fur babies...I'm grateful for all that nature shares with us...I'm grateful to be able to read all the wonderful books I love so much...I'm grateful that I enjoy such pleasure from art...and pottery...and memories
