Today I am Grateful for:

Staying Present. When I was using I would stick my head in the sand and pretend that nothing was going on and totally ignore everything that was happening that I needed to deal with. Today I hold my head high and experience the moments and deal with them with a much more level head. I'm happy to say that it doesn't hurt as much as I use to thing it would.

My Sanity. At least what is sane for me. I'm learning to recognize when I'm getting off track and I can bring myself back to center.

Art. There is so much creativity around us, presented to us as art. Sculptures, paintings, signs, advertising, graffiti tags. It's everywhere we look. I'm grateful to have a hypersensitivity towards art and recognize it throughout my day.

Children. To quote Art Linkletter, "They say the darnedest things." What free creative little minds that they have by not having life's influences affect them to a degree as we older kids have.


  1. Art (Linkletter) is everywhere.

  2. Life is what was happening when I was in my fantasy world. I'm glad I am a part of life now. Amen.


  3. We each get our own brand of sanity.

  4. Art is great. Kids are great. Gratitude is great!!

  5. I would much rather be sane today than go back through the insanity that I had before Al-Anon.It wasn't a fun time at all.
