Grateful tomorrow is another day and I can put this one away soon (sober).
Grateful to see StellaBlu! ♥
Grateful that the surgeon I saw sent me off to another surgeon and hospital to look at my back and hopefully get an epidural although it could take 3 to 6 months. I didn't like his energy at all. Lucky. I wouldn't have stayed with him anyway. Ugh!
Grateful for all of you so much! ♥
Peace and love to anyone struggling or suffering tonight. ♥♥♥

Grateful that Alysheba is going to a different surgeon.(I wish you all the best)
Grateful for everyone's support.
Grateful for the ability to keep posting.
Grateful for the first thunderstorm that we've had in awhile.
Grateful that KTB5000 has 17days.(Great job)

I hope that everyone enjoys another sober day and see you tomorrow.

Hi everyone, after always seeing Least posting about practicing gratitude and how itís helped, (thx least!!) I decided Iím going to post here every night after my nightly 24hr pledge. Iíve loved reading everyoneís posts so far.

Today I am grateful for my oldest sister, who lives close by to me so we can support each other through a new recent stressful situation.

Iím grateful for my cat, who always runs to the door when I get home and sleeps with me at night.

Iím grateful for my comfortable bed and soft sheets that I always look forward to getting into at night.

And of course, being sober today.

Grateful for those in early sobriety, for you are a continual reminder that we take this one day at a time, and I'm grateful that makes it less overwhelming sometimes.

Grateful another day, sober, is coming to an end.
Grateful for my blessings.
Grateful I will stand up to bullies, including doctors who are bullies. Grateful I have no fear of them and when I was young, I used to save my sister from mean bullies all the time. Grateful that if a bully gets in my way, they won't be there very long. Grateful for that gift and an abhorrence of bullies.
Grateful for all of you being here. That is a gift. ♥♥♥

Grateful Fighton is on day 5!
Grateful to enjoy a little wintry weather in the middle of spring. Husband is making a cozy fire
Grateful that at least where I live in No CA there is less bullying than there was in my generation where I grew up. The bullying I endured was serious. Schools, students and families are taking a stand now, and I see a lot more compassion among kids being shown to others who are different. Kids are gathering in groups protecting other kids too. I know bullying still exists though (thinking about Daisyís morning post), and I hope the anti bullying awareness and measures spreads everywhere.
Grateful to have a sitter lined up for Sat. Itís my wedding anniversary. Grateful Iíll be celebrating with a special dinner and after dinner mocha with husband, and not with wine or champagne
Grateful to have some time to catch up on Ozark this weekend. Itís really good!
Grateful to be excited about the last episode of GOT (at least I think itís the last one. Sort of sad)
Grateful a new season of Big Little Lies is coming soon. Canít imagine anything as good as the first though
Grateful we can overcome obstacles and become stronger.
Grateful for all of you!
