Sober since April 6, 2006

That's
days

this attitude needs some gratitude

So here it is:

Today, I'm especially thankful for ...

  • being sober
  • having amazingly awesome AA friends
  • having a loving family that loves me and supports me
  • gliding through the wind on a beautiful day with my special guy on his motorcycle
  • watching a movie with friends
  • hanging out at the coffee shop with friends
  • having friends (they're all in AA -- AA's are the best friends in the world!)
  • knowing that one of my homegroup chicas faced something very challenging this week, and she has been willing to share what's going on, and she's stayed sober through it
  • having a job to get up for in the morning
  • the possibility of buying my dad's car (if the bank will help a bit)
  • having a nice warm, soft bed to sleep in
  • being tired enough to want to sleep
  • having the opportunity to embrace a coworker tomorrow who is returning to work from bereavement leave
  • shopping at the mall with mom today ... found a beautiful dress!
  • going to church this morning (for the second time since last summer). I felt a bit out of place, but the feeling got better as the service proceeded.
  • the "ice pack burn" on the back of my neck is almost completely healed (man, that really hurt!)
  • God, because He's there when nobody else is

Great list. Love the bit about the bike, too!

I hope the bank helps out.

Thanks for helping me stay sober for another day.

Wow, tkdjunkie, you really are an inspiration! I love reading the list and as I ponder on them I remember my brother who is undergoing his own travail with alcoholism treatment. I wish him to be as sober, optimistic, and sunny as you are after concluding his recovery. tkdjunkie, I hope to read more of you and keep inspiring people!
