Sunday 12/13/09 - "SO GRATEFUL..."


I am so grateful for many things today.

I am grateful that I believe if something is happening, it IS GOD'S WILL. This is true whether I like or dislike what is happening.

I know that in the fullness of time God's Will - will be done in my life. I made a decision to leave my will and my life in God's hands.

I bought an artificial Christmas tree last year. It is easy to put up and already has lights on it. I put it up in less than an hour this afternoon. Daughter and I decorated it with her decorations and her very artistic direction. It looks quite beautiful. It is very different from the way I have decorated our tree for 40+ years, but I love it.

The three of us - hubby, daughter, and I had dinner at Perkins. I had the chicken pot pie and it was delicious. It was the perfect choice - nice comfort food for a wonderful day.

I got to the gym for a good workout this morning and then went to one of my favorite Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, a women's noon meeting. As always, it delivered a huge dose of spirituality. I sat next to daughter and her sponsor sat at the end of the large table. I know most of the women at this meeting and it feels so like home, comfortable.

I am looking forward to my home group Al-Anon meeting tomorrow morning followed by two separate meetings with two sponsees.

I am "in the moment" today and that makes me very happy. If I just stay in this place, I will remain peaceful in my mind and spirit.

I found today that I had two new followers of my blog. What a joy that is for me. It may seem like a simple thing, but it makes me very happy.

I will be meeting up with a blogger from "over the pond" in February and I am excited today at the prospect of meeting her then.

I slept well last night and had a short nap this afternoon - all of which my body appreciates.

I am grateful for my blogger friends.

This all sounds like an answer to One Prayer Girl's prayer. Makes me want to get on my knees.
