Today I am Grateful for:

Freedom is choosing. This is from today's "A Day At A Time." "We lose the fear of making of decisions, for we realize that if our choice proves wrong, we can learn from the experience." I am grateful that I have gained confidence in my decisions and I realize that my choices are not the end of the world.

Unknown friends in AA. Yesterday I needed physical labor help. What will someday be my studio is currently a storage room. I needed an extra pair of hands to help move things to Charity, garbage or repack to store elsewhere. I was glad that I could call an unemployed fellow AA-er and pay him. What was nice is that we could fellowship about how great the program works for each of us. And even though I didn't know this person it allowed me to trust him, which is something I would not normally do with just anyone off the street.

Work. I am grateful for the work that is in front of me. I'm finding I am working 12 to 15 hours a day to get my business going. The best part of it is that it doesn't feel like work. I don't dread it, I have goals and I don't feel like I have to please anyone and I don't have to wonder if my performance is up to par. THANK YOU GOD!

Friends and Family. I am grateful to have so many people to care for and that care for me in my life.


  1. That's a lot of hours. Don't forget to kinda pace yoself.

  2. Who knew what recovery would hold for us?

  3. That trust of another in the program is something that I feel too. It is weird, but when I find out someone is in the big or little rooms, I feel a connection without knowing anything about them. That is the power that I am so grateful for.


  4. Good luck with your business. There are many great things in recovery. Renewed energy and hope are two rewards for me.
