Gratitude day 12 - nieces & nephews - so wonderful - to get the opportunity to be an Aunt is such a blessings!
Gratitude Day 13 - PEACE - that peace that comes from inside - that once you struggle and obtain it - no matter what comes, no matter who tries to steal it - you and your HP won't allow it to be removed from your soul - oh yes my friends - that PEACE was absent from my life for a long, long time - but today it is here & I am grateful

PINK HUGS!

I am grateful for my children, their smile, their intelligence, their laughter and their love. I am grateful my job and the people I work with. I am grateful I have a toliet that flushes, because when all is an emotional mess and I feel hopeless about everything and trying desperatly to seek something to smile about. The sound of wooshhh just made my day a little easier.

I am grateful to have the ability to provide for my children. To be able to feed and clothe them when there are many families that do not have that ability.

Grateful today for answered prayers and knowing that every prayer I have is answered - I may not understand why but the prayer is answered!

Grateful that when I am on my knees broken before the God of my understanding - He loves me unconditionally, He guides, directs me, loves me enough to bless or block my prayer request to let me know which way to go ~ Grateful He always has my best in His plans!

PINK HUGS,
Rita

Gratitude Day 16 ~ Grateful to be ENOUGH -

This one is always a struggle for me but today I will be grateful that I am ENOUGH!

I am smart enough, thin enough, pretty enough, capable enough, . . . despite what messages I hear in "RITAVILLE"

I am enough and so are YOU my friends!

PINK HUGS & enjoy this Wonderful Wednesday!

I am grateful to live in the present. I don't have to worry about things. Worry is a choice.

I'm so grateful for my kids. They hold me together without even knowing that they do it with their little smiles and total and complete normal kid crap, lol! Whenever I'm about to lose it all I have to do is pick up my daughter or hug my son and I'm centered and determined once again.

Grateful to be done work and have a few days to prepare for vacation, and I am grateful for my health that I can do this without concern.

Grateful for all the wonderful people here too, every day I am grateful for you all.

((ilovemysonjj)) - sorry for the theft - hope you have insurance that will cover it - by the way - GREAT Attitude about it all! glad you weren't in the car when it was damaged & robbed!!

Gratitude today is for a very special group of ladies I call my Texas PINK Posse' - this is a group of ladies that I attend a once a year Recovery Retreat. It's a multi-program retreat - AA, NA & Al-Anon

Me, being in Al-Anon, at first I was a little leary attending, especially because I was early in my recovery - wondering would I, could I relate to ladies from "the other side of the street" so to say ~ well I will tell you - my HP works in mysterious ways!

I have learned so much from these ladies - I learned true compassion and understanding of this disease, how to be a better woman, mother, daughter, friend ~ I am humbled by the willingness to go to any lengths to help a friend stay clean & sober and to maintain their own sobriety/clean time!

AND their willingness to reach out to help ME when I needed it!

I am truly blessed to have these women as my friends!!

PINK HUGS,
Rita
