friday grAAtitude

Today, I'm especially grateful for ...

  • being 232 days sober
  • my kickass homegroup
  • the warm fire the guys built at the outside meeting tonight
  • meeting up for coffee, hot chocolate, music, and dice after the meeting tonight :)
  • this program focusing on making progress ... sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly
  • my adorable dog, who can hardly walk due to a recent hip injury -- yet he gets up and runs to see me when I walk in the door. I pray that I will learn that kind of enthusiasm in my life, that I would get up and run to God and to others with enthusiasm regardless of the pain.
  • my supportive family
  • not working in retail today ("Black Friday" is a scary day to work in retail!)
  • my new mp3 player. They've started playing instrumental Christmas music over the speakers at work. Yeah. The kind that makes you go nuts. Thank GOD for the mp3 player ...
  • my car works! Woohoo!
  • Thanksgiving leftovers
  • the beautiful sunshine and cool breeze today
  • feeling accepted
  • finding myself sincerely caring for others and their situations
  • staying sober this week
  • calling other alcoholics, and them being willing to talk to me
  • God, because when I feel most alone, I'm most able to feel Him with me.

thank you for that lovely list. what a pleasure to read! I can really identify with it. especially what you say about your dogs. animals are extraordinary and can be very wise teachers. they see a lot more than we realize. well i think so anyway.

That's such a cool list (hope the dog gets well soon).

What are you going to load onto the mp3? Lots of Ramones and punk rock? :-D

Have a great day and a wonderful USA hol.

Congrats on 232 - ODAAT.

Thanks :)

Ramones? Punk Rock? Hey, I like everything! Right now, I'm listening to U2, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Green Day, and Goo Goo Dolls. Time for more music though ...
