Its the beginning of a new week! Hopefully the sun will return lol. We've had 3+ days of grey, windy rainy early spring-like days (which are most certainly better than 3+ days of bitter cold and snow!) and I am ready to see the sun again!
I've been reading about a good bit of gratitude on the blogs I follow so I thought maybe it was time I share my own gratitude list. I think its a nice way to kick off a dark Monday morning.
I am grateful for... ...today.
an extended period of time where I can reflect, pray and act on how I need to be closer to God (Lent)
my sobriety, the program of AA and the Twelve Spiritual Steps
the progress my wife and I are making in our marriage
a new start this morning, that I don't have to carry the stresses and failures of last week into my day
freshly percolated coffee in one of my favorite mugs
a place where I can share where I am
God's gift of music in my life
reasonably good health
So there it is, a list of things to be grateful for! If you've a mind to share something you're feeling especially grateful for, by all means please share it. I believe that gratitude is a state of mind best shared with others and spread far and wide. Gratitude is one of the essential elements of a lasting, contented, peaceful sobriety.
Have a great day!
