todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I've been sober for 1826 days
that Hayden (my angel) shoved me into the rooms of AA in 2003
that my incomprehensible demoralization convinced me to accept a higher power into my life 1827 days ago
that I haven't had a blackout in more than 1826 days
that I've been an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous for 1826 days
that I haven't put myself in a position to have a DUI in 1826 days
that for 1826 days, I have had NO desire to drink or get drunk again
that I could go on and on, but I do this list just about every day, so if you want more, check my archives.
"Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life."
-- Christiane Northrup
"Develop an 'attitude of gratitude.' Say think you to everyone you meet for everything they do for you."
-- Brian Tracy
"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light."
-- Albert Schweitzer
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
-- Melody Beattie
