Are we having fun yet?


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my depression lessened yesterday and I returned to abnormal

for a very good meeting about the Fourth Step; heard some valuable reminders

that I made an appointment to see a therapist later this week

for a very sweet phone call from Liz in the UK. I didn't send her a card this holiday season because I had too much on my mind. Me.

that an acquaintance showed his true colors when he felt the need to throw personal insults at me simply because I don't agree with his bigoted and extremist politics; I have now included him in a prayer like you guys told me to do.

that I had my plush carpet professionally cleaned yesterday for the first time in 3 1/2 years ---- arghhhh!!!

that we're getting some needed rain in Houston but without matching cold temperatures

Without the rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.

Yay back to abnormal? Hehee.

So now that you have a sanitized carpet does this mean shoes off at point of entry?

Great work Dave!

SOOOOO glad things are looking up a little for you, and that you're taking steps for them to get even better (i.e., the appointment with the therapist—HUGE!; praying for the a-hole guy—MORE HUGE!).

Great gratitude list. I need to do the same. I think I've been feeling similarly to you lately, and also feel as though I'm finally stepping out of it. Merry Christmas!
