Sober since April 6, 2006

this post is brought to you by the number 2

Today, I'm very grateful for ...

  • being eight months & one day sober
  • working Step 2 with my sponsor tonight
  • being assigned work for Step 3
  • the amazing people in this program who continually show me how to be a better person
  • developing relationships and getting to know people better
  • not feeling so "lost" in AA anymore. Everybody's got a place, and it's helping someone else.
  • having a nice, warm bed to sleep in tonight (it's COLD outside!)
  • having an understanding and patient family
  • my dog, because he just wants to play. Always. PLAY!
  • my cell phone, because I dunno how I ever lived without one
  • God, because although I sometimes try to do His job, He never tries to do mine

It take some people YEARS to get this, girl! Awesome work you are doing.
You have a gift and I am glad you use it.
P.S. Congrats. Today you are 8 months and 2 days sober!

That's a good list. And me and your dog have the same outlook on life...

I get my role and God's role confused all the time. Arggggh.

My dog is 9, and she is more of a relaxer. But the cats, geez at 2 am they love to play. I love them.

Congrats on 8 months plus more! Getting closer, but today is good to be sober. Happy Friday.

Hey tkdjunkie,

TAG you're it! Here are the rules: Each player of this game starts with the 6 Weird Things About You. People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own 6 Weird Things as well as state this rule clearly. Have fun! :)
