I am grateful for my elevated liver enzymes...
it was a gift. It has been over a year since I have known they were high and a constant worry but never enough to make me stop drinking. When I was asked to stop drinking by my dr and couldn't doors started opening. Today I am so close to saying outloud I am an alcoholic. Inside I know it...just can't say it yet. it will come.
I am so very grateful for this gentle nudge, this gift God has giving me. He could have given me a DWI, I could have injured my children, I could have ruined my mariage, isolated my family, set a very bad example for my boys who would grow up to be alcoholics too. I could go on and on. It could have been so much worse. I was given this gift, this realization and I feel smart enough and strong now to take it. I pray for the strength to continue to fight to always know where one drink could lead me.
Thank You and I especially thank You for the sense of calm and peace I have today!

I'm grateful for the chuckle the title to your gratitude thread gave me.
Knowledge is knowing that tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.
