I’m thankful that this awful weather is almost over, we are in the Dallas area and have not lost electricity once, all our pipes are still flowing and propane is full. Being locked in together with W and kids, for a week, has really put R to the test, so far so good

A day late but...

My wife and child had to work last night and their commute is quite long. I’m extremely thankful that both trips were uneventful and they made it home safe and sound.

Didn’t miss it this week, so I’m thankful for that.

Hit a bump in my R. In my mind it was pretty big; now that I’ve had some time to think about it, I probably overreacted. I’m thankful that I’ve recognized rather than sit in a corner and sulk.

I’m thankful for the new training regimen I’m on. Kicked my ass tonight but I made it through.

As always, I’m thankful for my family and their continued health.

A day late but wanted to say I'm thankful WH got his second shot today!

He's been working at hospitals about 60% of the past year, often on COVID floors. So it's a huge relief that he's protected and moreso that the risk of him spreading COVID to others is much lower.... He's often in five different locations a week with his job so he's been afraid he'd be the source of some type of superspreader event.

I’m thankful for some personal growth I’ve been going through. I know I say this a lot but SI folks have helped me so much. I really feel like my R journey is headed in a great direction

In just a few days will be our 30th wedding anniversary, I admit to having some anxiety about it, but I’m damn proud of it and will be celebrating it. I’m proud that in 30 years my W does not understand what it feels like to be a BS.

Just to keep this going

I am thankful for a bit of insight I had this week. I was getting ready to bitch about someone and tried looking at the situation from there point of view.

I’m thankful that the new community I joined has been both acceptable and welcoming.

As always, I’m thankful for my wife and child, always the most important people in my life.

Our indoor pools recently reopened, and I got to spend a few hours in the pool splashing and laughing with my two grandkids. It is definitely the little things.

Never bother with things in your rearview mirror. Your best days are on the road in front of you.

I am thankful for some personal growth and healing that has very recently taken place.

I’m thankful for my kiddos, even when they drive me bonkers.

I’m thankful for the man my WH is TODAY. Which that’s a big fucking deal for me to even say.

I’m thankful for the warm weather! I hate being cold

I am thankful for my fWW's new job, her getting it without me demanding it (foot dragging though it may have been in many ways...), and the first day of true NC.

Thankful to see this thread still going.

I take a lot of time away from the ‘net these days, to focus on the good stuff going on in life (and there is good stuff, even in pandemic world). But whenever I stop by to see where folks are in their recovery, it’s great to read the positive moments.

I’ll likely be around again soon, as the five years since discovery mark arrives with better weather.

I’m thankful that today is my Friday. We are taking our anniversary trip this weekend, nothing fancy just a getaway to celebrate where we are now, winery’s and casinos.

My wife does these little things which illustrate why she is so special. I’m thankful that I can appreciate them now.

I’m also thankful that I’m becoming someone she can be proud of. Someone that truly cherishes her now.

I actually got promoted yesterday. Always a good thing but it's been a terrible year - I'm in an industry hard hit by COVID, half the company has been laid off and I was reduced to part time from October through the end of January. I worked my ass off for the past year and am glad to see some payoff. Thankful that it seems like the work situation is getting better!

It’s been a rough week but I’m thankful it’s almost over. I’m trying to see the good in things which is a step up from where I was. So I’m thankful for that too.

It’s been a great week. My W defused a trigger, she dove in front of it and took the bullet. Really it wasn’t much of a trigger for me, but she owned it.

Happy Friday Eve!!
