    Each One Help One

    My husband and I, grateful for our own circumstances, met a young woman and her baby son 16 years ago. They had a rented room, but not much support in their lives. We were childless. We moved to a bigger house and became a family. The woman was able to get off of public assistance, get some experience and get a...

    Thank You!

    I have wanted to tell this story for many years since it occurred when I was 16, and I am now 67. This is the perfect place and I hope the people involved who helped me and my friends so many years ago will see it and know how truly grateful I am to them. I was riding in the back seat of a car when suddenly...

    A Gift

    Although I picked gratitude thm re are at least 6 other principals that would apply. I was given a beautiful gift from my stepson at his wedding in the form of a letter. He expressed his gratitude to me for being a loving wife to his father. There were some very personal reasons that he expressed in the letter...

    Robin H

    I found my hero at an A.A. meeting. I was new to the program and she went out of her way to show me the ropes of becoming grateful and spiritual. Every day she reminds herself to do the right thing, and to be grateful for what she has. She's a mother, girlfriend, and sponsor. And she's changed my life in many ways.

    My hero is my mother. As a single mother of three young children, she raised us on a waitress's salary. We never went without having everything we needed. We lived in a highrise apartment building, but she made us feel as if we lived in a castle. Times were very difficult for my mother. At times I heard her...

    She just gave birth to two bubbly young men, but she is a mother of 5 more little ladies. She is our aunt. She is the cause of what we are today and what we will become in the future that lies in front of us. She is the person we go in times of trouble, bewilderment and our success. The person why we try our...

As a foreigner, I am grateful for my College Medger Evers for giving me the opportunity to accomplish something beyond expectation "my degree" and to be the first in my family to make my beloved mother proud.

The college video gets to me every time. My dad unfortunately started struggling with an addiction to drugs in 2008. He started being abusive towards me, more emotionally than physically, in 2010, and when my parents divorced in 2011, he despised me. I believe he blames me for the divorce because I finally broke down and told my mom everything. He says we are both crazy, but the reality is, he is blinded by mind altering drugs. He will no longer answer my phone calls. The last time I went up to his door, to invite him to a church play I would be starring in and a revival I would be singing at, he was shaking, broke out, and was so skinny that when I hugged him I could feel every bone in his spine. I haven't spoken to him since, although I did find out on Facebook that he gave my entire inheritance , a large farm with a house, barn, garage, trailer and multiple fields, to a woman he has only been dating for a couple of years, with no intent of ever marrying. My gratitude falls in the arms of my loving mother who has stand beside me throughout everything that I have been through. Even though no one will ever fill the blank space that my dad left, she tries her hardest to play the role of mother and father. She truly is nuturer and provider in our house. I am also so grateful to have a God that will never forsake me. He has been holding my hand ever since the first day that my dad tried to hit me, and he still hasn't let go. Even with all I have been through, how could I not be grateful?
