    I am thankful for the security guy that went against protocol and took me out for smokes 😂 (we both realised I couldn't run anywhere with the shoes I was wearing)

    Grateful to be in the warmth and to have a bed :) and i think of the homeless esp when it starts to get cold :(
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Carolyn and Stephanie in general chat. 
    So salaam worthy friend. Come back soon! That's the end.  Till another Arabian night! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming. A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue. I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare. Let me share this whole new world with you. A whole new world, that's where I'll be.

    Today my mam went to lidl while I was at college. This is oddly specific but every Christmas I love a bag or two of cheese and chive wheels from lidl.

    Anyway I came home and found out she had brought me two bags(i won't eat them all at once 😂) and two more to take up as I won't be here for Christmas.

    It was so simple just her thinking about what I like most but I'm so grateful like I just needed that 💕 

    Reminds me that doing something for someone doesn't have to be hard x

    Social Services because they might be able to find me somewhere to stay when my mum goes into hospital.

    My old manager... he just said he's proud of me and honestly it means so much :) while I was in hospital a few years ago and everyone was making me sort my will and shit cause they didn't think I would be around much longer, he believed I would be and kept my job safe for when I got home, I don't think he realized how much that meant to me, having something to come home too, and him never giving up on me :)

    I am grateful for my family and friends, and also to part of this lovely community. I have been a member on here for many years now, and I love supporting people on here. You are all so lovely and kind to each other. :heart:

    As I brought my boyfriends family a few gifts I realised in that moment even while I didn't fork out loads I still have enough to see him and get them nice things and be all warm on Christmas and others don't. 💕

    I brought a toy for the children's hospice and donated some money to a local homeless charity x

    Today I am grateful for only working three days, yeah they are 12 hour days, and I work alternate weekends, but today has been my day off, and I've been able to just relax and chill. Sometimes I feel bad for not doing anything when it's my day off, but today I've embraced it and I've had a really lovely day :heart:

    Grateful to the recovery man who calmed me down after I had a car accident by just being kind. There are some amazing human beings on this planet and he is one of them. I didn't really even get the chance to say thank you as I was in shock but I think he knew I was thankful anyway. <3
    Treat yourself as you would treat a good friend
