Today I am Grateful for:

My attitude of Gratitude. For the last 21 months I have learned to have an Attitude of Gratitude. Before becoming sober and clean I never was thankful for the simplest things. I am today. I'm Grateful for the joy I get watching people be kind to others. I'm Grateful to be able to look at the positive way my life is, versus the negative that I lived to dwell in. I'm Grateful for the love I see in my dog's eyes. I'm Grateful to see a family where I never thought that there would be one. I'm Grateful for the sober friends that I have that helped me get to this point. I'm Grateful for AA and to where it has lead me today. I'm Grateful that I am awake in my life. I am aware of all my actions and how they can play out. I am Grateful when I know that I am doing wrong and I can make it right. I am Grateful that my first action when dealing with others is to be kind and I strive to continue that even when a situation may seem to get uncomfortable. I am Grateful for my spirituality and where it has brought me today.


  1. Lots to be grateful for each day. Glad that you are here.

  2. Kindness and spirituality... Kindred spirits...

  3. That pretty much says it all.
    Except for why the Carol Burnett show is no longer on TV.

  4. I could echo each item on your list fact, I think I will! I never knew gratitude before Alanon and was one miserable soul. I arm myself each morning, like you do, with an appreciation of all that I have. What a gift....
