I am grateful today! Why? I had a BIG problem, and was shown a simple solution.

What that heck does that mean? Well, I am grateful for my life today. I am grateful for and enjoy my life and my feelings today. None of this would be possible without the AA, the Steps and the fellowship leading me to find God.

I really don't remember when I said, Yea I am grateful, but more like I just woke up on day and paid more attention to the phrase.

I was grateful when I found the solution to my drinking/living problem as I hadn't a clue what my problem was really.

18 Years sober this past Sept 25th. and enjoying life today.

I am grateful that I'm not drunk tonght, that I have a warm place to stay, a full belly, and friends here who care, so yea, I'm grateful.

I still have alot of negative crap to let go of, so my gratitude level may rise as I shed that shackles of active alcoholism.
