I start each day with a Gratitude List and am Grateful for: my cat who loves me unconditionally, my children who love but challenge me and often break my heart, my extended family, my health (could be much better), my car that gets me to meetings, my computer that provides access to other Recovering Alcoholics, my reading from...
