Sunday 11/22/09 - "SUN DAY GRATITUDE"
"SUN DAY GRATITUDE"
It is "Sun day", a beautiful morning with lots of sunshine, and my soul is full of gratitude.
I am grateful for:
the sun that will kiss me, not bake me today
the fact that God has changed me enough that I am able to have brief moments of clarity - that in these fleeting crystal clear moments I am able to see certain events of my life and patterns of my behavior that help me understand myself and others.
the grace of God that touched Bill Wilson and that this touch brought Alcoholics Anonymous into existence to save my life and the lives of countless others.
the ability to grow quiet enough to listen for that softest of voices deep down inside me and to be able to hear.
my faith and trust that "all is well" if I continue to listen for that still small voice within, just follow the gentle nudging and prompting of that voice, and allow it to lead me in the right directions.
the opportunities God gives me to touch others with my hands, words, and sensitivity - that when these moments occur, they leave me with an overwhelming conviction of the love of God.
my family, friends, and blogger companions.
all creatures great and small including my great big 85 pound foster dog, Lucky, and my small 14 pound kitty, Bert - may they learn to live in peace.
the sponsee I will meet this morning and the home group Al-Anon meeting I will attend.
the chili recipe I will make this afternoon and enjoy this evening.
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
