Sunday, 3/1/09 - A GRATEFUL PRAYER GIRL!


Tonight I am living in the now and am full of gratitude.

I am grateful for a safe trip from my home to Tampa and back and all the driving in traffic-congested Tampa without any mishaps this weekend.

I am grateful to have spent the weekend with my daughter and her boyfriend in their home. They made me feel so welcome and comfortable.

I am grateful to have seen my son when he delivered his bride-to-be (M) to her surprise bridal shower on Saturday.

I am grateful to have seen my daughter-in-law-to-be at the shower, to see her surprise, to see her smiling (which she does a lot) to see her enjoying herself, and to meet her mother who flew in from Arizona for the party.

I am grateful to have met M's mother and get to know her a little before the wedding. I look forward to meeting M's dad at the wedding.

I am so grateful to have gone to Mass this morning. The Spirit was present and very strong and was a blessing for me. I was also blessed with hearing the choir director on piano and Mr. Steveroni on Violin playing "Moonlight Sonata". The music took me to heaven.

I am ever grateful for Mr. Steveroni, my hubby.

I am grateful that despite some of the overeating I did this weekend, I am still motivated to keep exercising and will do so tomorrow.

I am grateful for my sponsees. I feel so strongly that they are such precious gifts from God.

I am grateful for yet another cold snap arriving today that will be around for a day or two. It won't be long before we're into the 90s.

I am grateful that just for today I am not experiencing any anxiety or stress.

I am grateful for my sobriety and all that it has allowed me to experience and pass on.

I am grateful for Zane's right eye and improving left eye.

I am grateful for Mary Christine's blog today.

I am grateful that I am still motivated to volunteer in the hospital. I feel God is blessing me in ways I am unaware of as I visit patients.

I am grateful that my son has met the right girl for him. In this world, that is a true gift from God.

I am grateful for Steve's kitty Bert, daughter's new puppy, Lucky, and my son's ailing dog, Sebastian and new dog, Madison. I pray that Madison will stop being aggressive with Sebastian and that they will both be able to live together in a loving atmosphere.
