Thanks, Opi.

So grateful to be able to come here to participate and read others messages of hope and gratitude.

Grateful that it is clear to me that I need to not let my guard down, to keep the documentation going, to cover my butt and to watch my back. Sad it has to be this way, but it is what it is.

Grateful to actually be organized this year & to have time to savor the season.
Grateful for the decision to eat healthier & lose 20 lbs. (but not quite yet )
Grateful for the shared love & hope here at SR - you all have helped see me through another year.

Grateful to all of you on this thread. I found my first post to Morning Gratitude: Christmas Day, 2012. I had 8 days sober.

Thank you, least and Rusty, for being there even then. Thanks to everyone for being here now.

Grateful for all of you
Grateful to watch a funny movie and stay up late with my husband last night
Grateful to hear stories o the news of people rebuilding after the Camp fire. A man proposed to his girlfriend in the rubble that was left of their house in the fire storm. Inspiration that we can move forward after tragedy.
Grateful that the stock market will eventually rebound (I think). It always has in the past anyway
Grateful for reminders that what matters in life is love, spiritual essence and inner beauty. Material things do not matter.
