gratitude on a groggy, grumpy day!

dAAve- 244 Monday weigh in...

Time for a bit of gratitude...

Thanks to God/HP for:

Sobriety
Health
the motivation to get back to working out
my wife son n doggie
my family
friends
AA and the 12 Steps
my job, the new business and all the opportunities it offers
a handful of customers who need my help
the solitude of working by myself in the office, especially on a day like today when I am feeling a little out of sorts...
bloggage
my awesome blogger buddies!
the fact that You've greatly reduced my fear of economic insecurity
faith in an HP that makes life more peaceful
that my Christmas shopping is well under way
the peace in my heart at Christmas and throughout the year
RCIA and my spiritual evolution, may it ever continue
music, and the gift of music You've given me, that I am actually using it

I think I (barely) came to consciousness on the wrong side of the cave because I have been quite groggy and kind of testy today. Sometimes it's like that, I am sure it will pass. I'm intending to do a little quiet time with HP/God here in a few mins, after post.

All of a sudden, I've gotten quite busy with some new customers. I find it odd since we're two weeks before Christmas and usually it's a ghost town in most mortgage offices. I am kinda diggin' it! December will be sorta lean, as is often the case, but I already have a bunch of stuff cooking for January so, that's encouraging. And to boot, in order to hit the New Year running, I am making preparations ot roll out a new marketing campaign that is intended to really get things hopping. So, I am excited about that as well.

This afternoon we have our first ever teacher/parent conference at Ian's pre school, I am looking forward to that for sure. The poor lil dude has caught another cold/nasty cough.. hopefully it will be gone before the Fat Man comes!

All in all things are as they ought to be (or well, they'd be different). I'm at peace, just a lil grumpy lol... Like I said, a lil HP time, and this too shall pass!

Prayer for the day...

God/HP, thanks!! (see above!) I am struggling to get outta myself today as I am feeling a little crabby. I'm in one of those fogs I suppose. So, help me to get outta myself. Help me to remember that I am here to serve You, not me. Help me be a contributor at RCIA tonite. please help me grow in my faith in You. I know in my heart of hearts, that nothing good in my life can come without Your help. I pray that I may continue forward a day at a time in recovery and in my spiritual journey together with You. Also, especially this time of year, I pray for Your Will and Grace to enter the lives of those less fortunate than I, those far from home, in the service, sick with illness alcoholism and addiction and those who are alone. Help me be there for someone who needs me.

peace to y'all...

(man, I feel better already, I guess I shoulda done this earlier... but I had too much "important" stuff to do, lol)
