Today I am thankful for modern medicine.
for the health of my other 2 kids.
for the strength to be there for my daughter.
this day is done.
tomorrow is a brand new day.

I'm greatful to be able to enjoy today for the most part. To be able to see and teach my kids some of the wonders of the world. For bed time soon, so I can rest and snuggle with my kids. Movies to watch with my kids (or so I say they are for them, but actually i want to watch them more than them). Icecream, flannle PJ's (too cold for silk I don't own any anyway). And for the grattitude post.

for the courage to go to the big bad dentist today.
that tonight my children have took pity on me and have remained calm.
for my 14 yr old who made dinner.
that I am able to look at myself honestly and make amends when amends are due.

Today I hurt a couple of people in my life...
I wasnt very honest with them. so today I am grateful that I am able to be open enough to sit and look at my part. and sill get honest and make amends. I am greatful that I have the wisdom to know the difference.

Extremely Grateful

[QUOTE] Giving back what was so freely given to me.

[FONT=century gothic] I am very grateful today and everyday for that matter. I have my health even though it isn't perfect. I have a job which I can grow to become something. I have a roof over my head. A wonderful boyfriend. I have clean time. I have choices. Life could be better at times and there is always room for change. By the way I wasn't always this happy before I got clean and sober and even today I still have my ups and downs. NA has given me a new way to live and a freedom from active addiction.

Talk to you all soon

AWESOME LIFE

Lets see!

Another day sober!
Another day smokefree!
The roof over my head!
My health!
Food on my table!
The sweet smile of my son as he sings at the breakfast table!
A warm bed to sleep in!
Laughter, for it is the best medicine I know!
The cool, refreshing wind that wakes me up in the morning!
My hubby of course!
My black labrador and beagle!
Alcoholics Anonymous!! A.A. all the way!
Being able to read all of your wonderful posts!
My Higher Power.
BEING ABLE TO REALIZE THAT I HAVE THINGS TO BE GRATEFUL AND THANKFUL FOR TODAY!!

There are more and these are not necessarily all in order of importance but they all are true!

You all have an awesome day and keep the peace!

luv

Karen
