Grateful to have made it home and hopefully to settle back into a good routine.
Grateful that I made good on a promise to take my son to the comic/fantasy shop last night so he could get some new Magic the Gathering cards. No way could or would i ever have done this after flying and getting home to a house full of wine when I was drinking.
Grateful (and proud) my kids have one sober parent.
Grateful for the chance to be of service today.
Grateful for good health.
Grateful that while we were at my grandparents my daughter routinely just decided to give out hugs to everyone, especially her great grandparents and I could tell it meant a lot to them.
Grateful to be here with you wise souls.

Remembering the mornings when I woke up feeling horrible and hating myself. So glad those days are gone.

I am grateful that despite any challenges, I am sober and in a position to face the day without the added anxiety and depression that alcohol used to bring.

I am grateful for my husband; his love, support, friendship.

I am grateful for my wonderful horse, who cheers me up no matter how my day has been.

I am so grateful for SR and particularly my wonderful Class thread, without whom I would not be here, sober, today.

I am grateful for my home.

I am grateful for my family and my friends.

Grateful Numblady is home - safe, sound, & wineless.
NewChapter - grateful to have you here with us.
Grateful my day didn't start with shakes & dread.
Grateful for the compassion & understanding found here. Others in my life just don't (can't) get it.
Grateful I stocked up on birdseed - they are frantically getting fueled up during our snow storm.
