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.
G'nite.  Sleep tight. :D xo, PJ
