Grateful to get my 9 month chip today.

Grateful Henry's surgery went well on Thursday and he is recovering very well (he had a TPLO on his left knee to repair a torn ACL).

Grateful to have romance come into my life with a woman whom I've been interested in for five years (and her, apparently, in me). Circumstances change and voila! -- suddenly you have a bottomless need to send and receive heart-eyed emojis.

Grateful for patience.

I am grateful for Opi continuing this thread Thank you , Opi! Happy Monday.
I am grateful my brother and I carved out a chunk of time to talk on the phone yesterday; lack of communication can be so stifling.
I am grateful for my canine buddy and for the companionship he provides. He is not officially a therapy dog but he sure does do a good job of being a comforter for family members.

Fearless you are making me jealous with your coffee set up!! Yum!
Grateful for the absurdity of myself trying to do some cardio kickboxing moves because that was part of the video I streamed yesterday. Float like a lead balloon? Sting like a sloth?
Grateful for the feeling of fatigued muscles
Grateful to use things up instead of losing or getting rid of them: a pen, a giant bottle of conditioner, or wearing a garment until it frays.
Grateful for never, ever having to think about coordinating any Sunday shopping trips so they just happen to get me to the checkout line past noon so I can buy booze.
Grateful to have the luxury of thinking about whether I’m taking care of myself or being fulfilled. I know there are many people out there who work a lot harder than I do and have a lot less to show for it, and probably don’t have time or energy to worry about much besides scraping by.
Grateful for Advil. I think I must have clenched my teeth pretty hard last night. I had dreams I was wearing some crazy orthodontia that smashed my teeth together in a painful way. Hurts my head!
Grateful to get to start my day this way here with you all.

Deserto, your whole post made me smile . It reminded me of the early dating days with my husband
PalmerSage, the unpicked blog was the first sobriety tool I found online. I really enjoyed reading her posts and the podcast. I haven’t been back to it a while but I plan to when I get some time.
Me too, Waterox. I love it because it is great running weather
Now, what I am grateful for... grateful my dream last night wasn’t real. Some faceless random guy got me pregnant with triplets. I have no idea where that came from since I have no interest in an affair or having any more babies. Shop’s closed anyway
Grateful for my work flexibility
Grateful for my sobriety and never needing to drink again or feel so low about myself.
Grateful for all of you!

Deserto - Congrats on the 9 months - and the romance. How lovely.
Grateful for the bright sun today - not grateful for the big storm heading towards us.
Grateful there's nothing pressing to do today - except run to the store for the bread and milk!!
Grateful for movies & music - they let us take a vaca from our thoughts for a while.
