(((BSR and her daughter)))

I am grateful for the wisdom of BraveSirRobin, her clever name, the number of times I have smiled when I hear someone address her as Sir Robin (I canít decide whether that comes with a salute or genuflect), and her excellent sense of forum humor, which is a unique and special kind of genius. And the many times she has helped me practice emotional self regulation and her grace when I was bitchy to her once.

Today and everyday I am grateful for the second chance that I didn't deserve.

I am grateful for the word genuflect! It reminds me of the live action Aladdin movie, and I LOVE that movie (may have watched it 20 times when it was released on digital, lol).

I am also grateful for my sweet, silly, funny son who makes me laugh and warms my heart every day. I am also grateful for tea. It has gotten me through many mornings. lol

Today I am grateful for:

1. My husband on speed dial
2. My kids laughing and laughing and laughing together over "OK Boomer"
3. So many second chances in so many places when I don't deserve them
4. Landclark's post, because I just realized I haven't had my morning tea so no wonder

Today, I am thankful for the BS's on this site. While I am not thankful they are BS's, I am thankful for all the work they do in trying to help WS. There is a well of strength and kindness in many of the BS who can come and spend their time advising people who hurt their spouse the way they have been hurt. My husband could not always express or know some of the things he needed, and when he couldn't their guidance and insight led the way for me to be able to be more effective in helping him. They have also encouraged me personally on some of the darkest days of this process, and if it weren't for them I am certain I would have been divorced by the end of year 1.

I am thankful for the two teenage boys who helped me yesterday. I was grocery shopping and I tripped over a crack in the parking lot and I held onto my bags but my pocketbook went flying. Yes, Iím a klutz. My pocketbook was open because I was trying to get my car keys and a bunch of my things spilled out. They rushed over and collected them for me while also making sure the cars didnít run me over. They were really sweet and when I offered to tip them for their kindness, they turned me down.

I am also thankful to their parents because they did a wonderful job raising them!

I'm always nervous posting because I don't think I know all the rules but no stop sign so I think I can reply...

I'm grateful for SI because it's comforting to know that someone gets it.

I see this as the opposite - I'm thankful that there are some WS that can offer honest insights about behavior that can help me better understand my WW.
Several of the posts on Wayward Side have helped me process my questions so I'm appreciative as well.

I wanted anyone to be able to comment on this thread, WS and BS.

Took DD to see Aladdin when it came out, MAY have wept through much of it with its lessons about what love looks like compared to the masks some use trying to ďwin itĒ...

So, grateful today for the ability to change, AND dark movie theaters.

JBWD, glad I am not the only one! Now I want to watch it again. lol

Today I am grateful for new, fuzzy pink slippers.

Serpico posted 11/22/2019 21:10 PM

Are BS's invited to this party?

I am grateful to be able to wish all of you the happiest of holidays!

May the upcoming year be full of new opportunities for all of you to find the happiest of resolutions no matter what your individual situations may be.

Strength to all of you!

Iím grateful BraveSirRobin for your post. You were on my mind a lot yesterday. I was thinking about and praying for your daughter. I have sons who are addicts in recovery and a dear niece/ godchild who has recovered from anorexia. I know the anguish of feeling helpless to save someone you love with all your heart. Your post puts things into perspective. Intimate betrayal is one of the most difficult things in life to deal with, but there ARE much worse things. I pray that your sweet baby recovers.

Iím grateful for my healthy kids and my remorseful WH.

Iím grateful for the new day offering the opportunity for a new start.

I am thankful for Saturdayís. Stayed up a little late with h and got to sleep inhabit this morning. Getting ready for a nice little run and we have some friends coming over for game night tonight.

JBWD posted 11/23/2019 21:30 PM

Thankful for a team at work that is one of the most supportive Iíve had in a long time. Have heard more positive words from current boss in 6 months than in several years cumulatively. It helps me remember that I have a lot to offer and recognize that in everyone else too.

ChanceAtLife35 posted 11/24/2019 10:28 AM

Grateful to see another day again. To still be under the same roof with my BW and kids. I am grateful for the SI community where we can share our stories, insight, and build friendships with each other and help with our recovery. Looking forward to Thanksgiving with my family as last year I didnít get to spend it with them because of the fresh Dday wound. I hope everyone has a great day.

sundance posted 11/24/2019 10:36 AM

Washing machine and dryer.

Can you imagine doing laundry in a river? In 30*F weather?

So blessed!

landclark posted 11/24/2019 18:20 PM

Tonight Iím grateful for my sweet stepdaughter who shows my son so much love, and for my WHís ex-wife, whom I love and adore. We didnít always get along, but now we are truly family, and I canít imagine not being close to her.

BS here, and i had to say that i want you WS here know that i am grateful to those of you who have done the work and stay to help others. You have helped me, my husband and my marriage with your wise words and kindness. There is absolutely 0 chance we would have made it this far without you. My husband read a lot and it helped him break through his shame and begin to do the work instead of panicking and shutting down. And Pippin helped me a ton by being there for me by PM while i went through the worst of it. Thank you for lighting the path out of infidelity for the (few, rare) WS who choose to take it. It is thankless work with low success rates, but as someone who has benefitted, i am so thankful you do it.

I am sorry, BSR, that you were hurt by the words of other BS during a time that must be so painful and scary for you. I hope your daughter receives the best of care and is able to recover.
