Today I am grateful for:
Another day of being sober and realizing you can teach an old dog new tricks.
I can't stress this enough. Being there for someone when they need you. In and out of the program of AA. Just to be able to listen is sometimes all someone needs.
Joy - being able to see it and feel it.
Prayer and meditation. I am so grateful that I am practicing to put time aside to communicate and listen to my higher power.
As a side comment. I'm letting go of the negative, embarrassing feeling I allow myself to have when I tell people I pray. The right winged, conservative, religious zealots have turned communication with God, of my understanding, into something religious fanatics do. I get this feeling that it is a practice I should not be participating in because it is something conservatives do.
As I wrote this, I just got the lesson that it is because I separate them from me, using judgement. I forgot that they too are as much as part of God as I. In the bigger picture we are all connected.
I am also grateful that I am aware of judgement.
