GRATITUDE


"GRATITUDE"


I AM GRATEFUL FOR:


The 9 day visit I had with my daughter

The 4 times we enjoyed the peace and serenity of the beach

The relationship that has developed between my daughter and I - a result of AA and Alanon

The meals my daughter, my husband, and I were able to share around our table

The "girls night out" my daughter and I had with old girlfriends

The early celebrating of daughter's birthday since hubby and I will be on a cruise the actual day of her birthday

The encouragement and support Alky and I were able to give to daughter who has been "laid off" and is unemployed and fearful

Faith and trust that God will protect and provide for all of my family

My loving husband

My sobriety

My sponsees who give me more than I can ever give them - and who I dearly love

My ability to feel all my emotions - both positive and negative

No longer having to "run" at the slightest sign of a conflict

You bloggers
