Today I am Greatful for:

Karl and Maggie. Ina will be missed but she made way for two rescuses that were in need of a loving home. I am Grateful I am able to provide for them and to feel the love in our house that flows through my family.

Today I am Grateful for:

Knowing we are all the same. I know this and sometimes I forget to practice it. I do pretty good most of the time. I do pretty good about seeing people with less than me and realizing they have the same kind of soul on the inside as I do. I have a more difficult time with people that have more than they should. The ones that feel they can't socialize with just anyone and have to feel they run in a different class. This is a hard nut for me to swallow. I find myself more prejudice towards them if they give off the sense of being entitled. I am Grateful that today I will look to everyone, no matter what they think their status is life and try not to judge them and know that we are all the same.

Today I am Grateful for:

Where I am Today. Everyday I look at myself and I just can't believe I am where I am today. I am so Grateful that I stop everyday and I have Gratitude in my day for what I have, what I can be, and what I can do for others. I have learned to take life as it's pitched to me.

One of the biggest things I have learned being sober and clean is that I still have an emotional life. But I don't stay in those moments very long. Some of those emotions I need to experience. Some of them I have to stop and think, do I really need to go there with what I am feeling and I let it go. I also take the time to think about how I am going to handle things. I never did that in the past.

Today I am Grateful for:

A New Day. It's so great to realize that life goes on and the only choice you have is to move forward no matter what your situation is. In the past I would have stayed in my misery. Today I know better. Like a good solider, I march foward.

Today I am Grateful for:

Ina. She was a wonderful part of our family. She will always be remembered on the 4th of July, she was a kind sweet dog. We had to put her down today. She was very sick from gallbladder mucoceles. It came on quick before we could do anything about it.

Today I am Grateful for:

Loosing my Fear. I really didn't notice until this morning how much of my fear has gone away. I still have minor fear because I don't believe you really loose it all. But for the most part, I haven't thought about fear in my life for a few months. I have finally gotten to the point that I was being told will happen. It's what I have learned through AA that has gotten me to where I am today. I am so Grateful that I have found a program that is applicable to every part of my life.
