Monday 2/15/10 - "JUST FOR TODAY"
"JUST FOR TODAY"
JUST FOR TODAY I WILL:
remember there are only two kinds of business - my business and none of my business.
mind ONLY my own business and I will stay out of everything else.
practice being satisfied.
be happy that husband and I attended and actually got to sit together at mass this evening.
be happy that husband and I shared a meal out together after mass.
stop, smell and appreciate the beauty of the three dozen red roses hubby gave me for valentine's day.
wear the "footprints in the sand" necklace hubby also gave me for valentine's day.
celebrate my daughter's recovery.
continue to celebrate my son's marriage to his wonderful wife.
have a positive attitude about life.
love myself and I will love you.
believe my prayers are being answered.
thank God for leading me to Alcoholics Anonymous where I found sobriety.
thank God for my continued sobriety.
thank God for bringing me to Al-Anon.
thank God for the emotional and mental balance I have found in Al-Anon.
utilize the three A(s) I learned in Al-Anon. I will remain open to any new awareness about myself, others, and life. I will accept them. I will take appropriate action.
be thankful for my AA, Al-Anon, blogging, and other friends.
be grateful for the many spiritual connections God has forged between myself and others.
remember to thank God for the special sponsor-sponsee relationships I have been blessed to have - my sponsor and my many sponsees.
light my prayer candles. I light candles for my husband, his daughter and her mother, my daughter, her sobriety and job situation, her sponsor, my son, his wife, their search for their first home, for myself, my blog, my sponsor, my sponsees, their sponsees, their families, and last, but not least for Lucky and Bert (dog and cat living under the same roof).
snuff out those candles and send my prayers up to God on the tendrils of smoke that drift upward.
practice patience, persistence, and prayer.
cherish this very precious life I have. I will cherish each loved one in my life.
experience no fear or anxiety. Should either visit me, I will immediately begin to pray then I will contact my sponsor or other recovering friend.
enjoy reading a book that has me totally absorbed.
appreciate the cold weather that is so rare in Southwest Florida.
know that it is by the grace of God that I am sober and have so many blessings.
say, "I love you" to the people who mean the most to me.
wish the friends I have met on our blogs a peaceful good-night.

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.
