My word for 2017:

Alone

I take a pre sunset stroll out on our deck. The air is cool and crisp. There is silence except for the evening solo song of a starling in a tree top, and the haunting screech of a seagull. 

I am alone here 
tonight.
I am grateful that I am not alone here 
permanently.

It is nice to "get away" for awhile and enjoy solitude. However, it's just a nice to be reunited with the ones you love.

BTW, glad to see you posting again. I wasn't sure if you were coming back or not. :)

I like that . Alone is not the same as lonely. But there is a need to company too.

Good to see you back. Hope all is well with you.

Beautiful and lonely.

I am often grateful for this same thing! How was Morocco? I'm leaving for AZ and UT on Fri. with girlfriends.

PS I also wanted to mention that I agree that gratitude and negativity can't co-exist. Thanks for your insights.
