Note: This is weird, because this is the post I wrote on my blog titled "Grateful" and yet the post I wrote AFTER that showed up here on Wellsphere with that title. I have changed the title of the subsequent post to what it should be, and is on my blog: As Sick As Our Secrets. I guess the feed got mixed up when I did 2 posts too close together!:)
I was already thinking of doing a gratitude list, and then read Jeremy's awesome post. I have so much to be grateful for in my life today, even when I forget, or when I focus on minor irritations and insignificant inconveniences.
Today, I'm grateful for:
A husband who loves me and who chose to go with me to a marriage workshop at our church tonight. That he even WANTS to do something like this today is a testament to the way this program works, and that the Promises indeed come true.
New fellow/fellowettes in my life who are quickly becoming new friends.
Being invited (with my husband) to join a couples small group at church.
Being given opportunities to serve others.
Being able to rent a gorgeous 2,400 sq ft house here in our new hometown for less than it cost us to rent a 1,100 sq ft town house in Hollywood FL.
Bonnie Blue, My Faithful Little '93 Ford Tempo. 160,000+ Miles and Still Going!
Having a car that runs and mostly gets me where I want to go, even if it does have over 160,000 miles on it and is costing us more to keep on the road than buying or leasing a newer model would be (don't ask). Gotta luv my little Bonnie Blue Beater!
Being reminded of the fact that being in this program requires working this program, and that I need to get off my butt and get a sponsor here in my new hometown.
Blogs and websites to visit that encourage and challenge me as I continue on this path of recovery.
Clean sheets and an electric warming blanket calling me to the restorative power of sleep.
