Publishing this a day early so everyone can share New Year's wishes.
I'm grateful that this year we moved my dad into his place near my mom. Grateful I've had so many cool experiences this year despite very little income. Grateful that my immediate family are all still here. Grateful that I've made such a mental/spiritual shift so that I'm leaving the year much more peaceful than I entered it.
What are you grateful for that happened this year? What are you grateful for that's coming next year?

I know not everyone celebrates Christmas (my roommate doesn't) but I do and I want to send you all the best wishes for the season.
Grateful to this community we've built here. Grateful that my parents are settled and being taken care of. Grateful that I have a place to go on Christmas, and a place to come home to. Grateful for all the gifts I'm blessed to receive today.
What are you grateful for?

The previous post has over 1000 comments, MK must be busy so it's time for a new post.
I'm grateful for the Winter meetings so that we have something to discuss rather than Smasher's pipes all frozen up. Hopefully he has refills on Viagra and gets the problem resolved.
Have at 'er.

This thread is for your best Dad Jokes. Because Mondays are hard enough.
I don't play soccer because I enjoy the sport. I'm just doing it for kicks!
Note: Tom Jackson has helpfully found a link if you want to follow the winter meetings.

It's time again for your favourite weekly post! What are you grateful for?
I'm grateful for the optimists, for they know that expecting the best greatly increases their chance of getting it. They know that preparing for the worst doesn't make things any easier or better if it does happen and just makes you miserable in anticipation. They know that optimism is good for your body. They know that optimism is good for your mental health. They know that optimism keeps you moving forward and makes you more resilient in the face of perceived failure. They lift the energy of the room just by believing the best of everyone.
I'm grateful I am one.
