November 30, 2009

Today I am grateful for:

Quiet mornings - time to have to myself before the hussle of the day

Another day sober and healthy

Learning to listen to my God of my understanding and actually being able to hear it

Being able to be of service to anyone who needs it

Today I am grateful for:

The joy of laughter over anger - This morning my son woke me and asked if he could go watch TV and open his Legos and I said yes. What the reality of it was, I bought him a Lego Advent Calendar and he totally opened it because he didn't understand the concept of Advent. One day at a time!

Getting rid of clothes to donate to charity. I got rid of 52 pairs of underswear and I still have plenty. It feels good to get rid of everything.

To be in Houston during the fall season. What a great time of year.

Today I am grateful for:

Another great day of being sober. It's a great feeling to know I didn't do drugs before bed and I don't have to do them when I get up.

Having a 25 year relationship and seeing we can keep it going, no matter what.

The Super Nanny - because it shows me I am doing more than the right thing by my son and that I know how to treat him with respect in order to get it back.

Knowing that I can go anywhere and do anything by myself, stay sober and write about it in this blog.

Today I am grateful for:

My sobriety and being aware how much I am grateful that I am moving in the right direction

Knowing that I can spend quality time with my son wihtout feeling like I am trying to ditch him to do other things

A very understanding partner who knows me and still loves me

A spirtual life that I didn't know I was missing until I was lost
