Grateful to be sober and wanting to stay sober.

FBL- glad your mom is doing better!

Grateful to be pretty healthy despite some weird medical things they are finding right now. Grateful my body seems tough enough to withstand a lot of this and I seem to be still ok.

Grateful for all of you, so much. ♥

FBL, grateful for the good news on your mother.
Grateful that for me and my family, hunger is a passing feeling not a real threat (is it normal to feel sad for all the people who donít have the thing you are grateful for, or to feel like you donít want to tempt fate by being grateful for something that could get worse?)
Grateful both of my kids had a good report card, which is a big deal especially considering my sonís struggles.
Grateful for chances to be kind and generous to strangers.
Grateful that in three daysí time my daughterís slumber party will be over.
Grateful for sweet sober sleep.
Grateful for your posts, loved the image of the town clock chiming, Caramel.

Thank you, FBL, for sharing the news of Kathyís passing. I had not heard. Grateful too she is free of suffering. Everything I post below seems so trivial but to carry on in kindness here goes...

Grateful for the love and support of this place.

Grateful that it is not very long before buds appear on trees that it seems impossible to believe are not dead in their barren and denuded winter state.

Grateful for the endless amusement my little kitty can derive from a ponytail holder. These are his playthings. He will flip one around in his paw, then stare it for a long time like a mortal enemy, then pounce again and again.

Grateful that I did not set an alarm clock this morning and just slept.

Grateful for this life, for each breath, for the people who cross my path while I am here, including each of you and most especially Gilmer.
