Grateful for my husband's company and affection.
Grateful that my son called me -- even if only to ask for money!
Grateful that I can help him out.

Seeing that I knew they beat Notre Dame (woohoo). I fell asleep watching the game and missed the end.
Anyway, she is at Ohio State, but attended countless Pitt football and hoops games with me growing up...and is still a big fan.
So, in a way, she was saying I LOVE YOU...don't you think?
Oh absolutely! She was saying I love you, AND I ALWAYS WILL.

Grateful to watch The Bells of St Marys this morning, and Little Miss Sunshine last night.
Grateful this headache will pass.
Grateful to doze with the dog till it does.
Grateful I don't have to be perfect... as I'd be a big loser if I did!

This morning I am grateful for:

My sobriety.

The beginning of a new work week and possible schedule change.

Better coping skills.


Have A Great Day All,

Grateful for my real blessings: husband, son, job, home, health, sanity (kind of).
Grateful that being in the hallway isn't hell -- it's just not heaven, and it's where I am.

Grateful for today and another chance to get it right.
Grateful my 3 yr old is now a 4 yr old, happy birthday to him, 11/11 what a special day.
Grateful to spend some time with my Dad this morning.
Grateful for the telephone conversation with my daughter this morning.
Grateful to be able to say sorry.
Grateful for biting my tongue and not being goaded into an argument with another this morning.
Grateful to you all, my dear friends.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will make a conscious effort to be aggreable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.

Grateful for a great AA mtg. this morning on Veterans Day and the great gratitude shares by all of my SR buddies especially (((V))) in Oz.

I was in the Marines during the Korean war and we loved to drink. Grateful for those who made it both in combat and surviving alcohol. Yesterday(10Nov.) was the marine corps birthday. Semper Fi!
