We have all been struggling now , whether it is emotionally, physically, financially, and so on. Many of us have become anxious as well as sad.
I have listened to words of chizuk yesterday , and the common denominator between many of the speeches I heard is that we should work on being “happier”. They didn’t say be “happy” but rather we should try to attempt to be happIER. The tip a few of the lecturers gave was to express gratitude towards Hashem. Expressing gratitude , changes the way we see things and makes us feel genuinely happier.
I’m asking everyone to join me in this project of expressing two things you are grateful for today. Even if what you are grateful for seems trivial, post it. This is a non judgmental thread and we are all joining in an effort to Thank Hashem .

1. I am grateful that when my baby woke me up from my sleep at 2 am I was able to breathe comfortably and walk to her bedroom without passing out. Thank you Hashem!

2. I am grateful that the birds are chirping today. The sounds of Spring bring me feelings of hope and renewal. Thank You Hashem!

I am grateful my kids have adjusted to being home all day. Even with the routine we created to help them with "What can I do now?" they were having a hard time. Cooperating with each other over the use of the phone has also improved and I'm grateful for that.

I am grateful my kids are happy to do Pesach cleaning, and they are doing lots of extras I thought we would skip this year.

I am grateful my DH is still employed BH because we need his paychecks to keep coming in. I don't know if I'll keep getting paid without being at work.

I am grateful to live in our own, well mostly the bank's lol, house with a nice backyard and swingset and trampoline, so that in the days of nice weather, unlike today's dreariness, the kids can play outside. They don't have to stay cramped into our small apartment we moved out of a few years ago.

I am grateful it's not too cold outside, no snow or other extreme weather which makes everything so much harder.

I am truly grateful for imamother which serves as a break from my DH, my kids, my Pesach cleaning without an investment. Come for 5 minutes, leave, come back a few minutes later. Unlike calling a sister or friend (with my unavailable phone which my kids hijacked to learn...), imamother doesn't require me to be rude or abrupt when I need to get back to my duties.

I am grateful we are all (so far) healthy and well, May Hashem protect us all.

I am grateful for my comfortable house. If we’re stuck in here, at least it’s a pleasant place to be.

I’m grateful for the extra time I have to spend with my husband and children. I thank Hashem that we all get along with each other (occasional squabbles notwithstanding).

I’m grateful that DH and I are still earning our salaries for now.

I’m grateful that I will have people to spend YT with, even if it’s not with extended family as had been expected.

#TYH HaShem really loves me!! My cleaning lady didn’t come the whole week last week. She texted me last night and asked if she should come. I told her only if she is 100% comfortable. She came today, but then about halfway through her time here, she told me she’s not going to come back until after pesach because she’s too scared. She came today because she was scared she would lose her job!! BH with her help, I was able to get my fridges and freezers cleaned out!!

I’m thankful that I can work from home and effectively do my job. Incredibly thankful. And that we have enough food to eat. A secure roof over our heads. Oh, thank you Hashem, for all of your blessings.

I’m grateful for a lot of things, but right now something that is on the forefront of my mind, is the appreciation of being able to breathe easily. I haven’t been feeling well and have been very overwhelmed because of that, but I keep thinking that Bh I have been breathing well. I’m so grateful for that.

I'm grateful that I can work from home so I'm still getting paid.
I'm grateful that I don't have to share my computer with anyone else while I work from home.
I'm grateful that my dc was able to buy a lot of pesach products for me that my local supermarket either didn't have at all or ran out of. Like matzah and grape juice.
I'm grateful that I have a dh so I will not be making a seder just by myself.
I'm grateful that so far B"H my family and friends are healthy.
I'm grateful that the skyrocketing prices of everything are just a (hopefully temporary) annoyance and not forcing me to make agonizing choices like food vs. medicine.
I'm grateful that despite skyrocketing prices and shortages, there is still food to be had.
I'm grateful that we're not under total lockdown like Italy (so far).
I'm grateful that I'm a homebody couch potato so staying at home for days at a stretch and not going out doesn't bother me at all (yet).
I'm grateful that my kids are out of the house and I'm not trying to clean for Pesach and do my usual day job while trying to keep children productive, occupied, happy and civilized while confined to quarters for weeks.
