Gratitude -- what a concept!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I got to substitute-chair the 6:30am meeting yesterday and started the new month of November with a gratitude meeting. I'm sure it's the first of numerous ones this month and that's a good thang!

that I picked up on the tools to stay sober after about 6 months in the program. First, I had to develop some honesty I didn't want to face, then I had to become open-minded enough to allow the concept of a higher power into my life and finally I had to become willing to try something different.

for all those people who just keep coming back, for whatever reason

for some rain here in Houston - finally! It's been a record-breaking dry run here - 41 days without measureable rainfall.

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.

I love that gratitude. Every day I realize how much I am grateful for--even the difficulties are helpful in my spiritual growth.

Love the reminder... of gratitude. It caught my head, my heart and now my fingertips. I had to let you know~
