This is a great thread!

After 3 days of being home sick, I am so grateful and thankful that I can send my daughter back to school!

Over a decace ago, i saw a magnet on the fridge of someone i was babysitting at. It was what I call “the grateful magnet”. It said something along the lines of 10 things that R’ Avigdor Miller zt”l said we should think about every day. I dont remember what they are, but I remember going home and every night I would try to remember to go over in my mind something that I was thankful for. After a while I would start to forget until I stopped completely. Fast forward a few years and I started to write down 10 things i was thankful in my marriage/being a mommy and at least 3 things that my husband did that I was thankful for. It made me more appreciative of my husband. I was going through a period of not appreciating my husband and the things he does for me. I felt that I did so much and he did nothing compared to what I did. It made me resent him. This scared me and I tried to think of ways to help myself from these selfish feelings. After all, my husband did and still does alot to help me. Writing something down adn being able to read back on the things I wrote, really helped me see how much he does every day. Even if it was just putting his dirty socks in the laundry!
