Today I am grateful to be in recovery and to be living sober one day at a time; especially grateful to be in recovery; because my bipolar mania is coming into effect and before recovery years back I would use alcohol to self medicate. So grateful those days of self medicating with drugs and alcohol are over. (I still struggle with food and shopping, but HP is helping me slowly in these areas too.) Grateful that Lord willing, should HP desire I will celebrate my 38th birthday tomorrow. Grateful for loving people in my family. Grateful for HP's love and mercy. Grateful for this team! Grateful to be sober!!

Today I am grateful that a friend of mine is doing my laundry. I am grateful that I am able to some more cleaning in my apartment today. I am grateful for this down time to enjoy a cup of tea and spark. I am grateful for sobriety and the road to recovery. I am so grateful that I only have to go one day at a time.

Today I am grateful for the phone call from my brother who lives many miles away. He has been ill and I haven't been able to talk to him in awhile. Feeling so blessed. Also my aunt called and we had a wonderful conversation and I believe there was a bit of healing within it.

Sobriety never ceases to amaze me. I am so very grateful for sobriety. At the end of one of my supposedly difficult conversations that could impact two households in our neighborhood, I found a common ground......yep.....SOBRIETY. My phone call ended with a sharing of sobriety dates......he is two years ahead of me.......and an amicable resolution to our most challenging neighborhood situation. Thank you, Higher Power for this precious life changing gift of sobriety.
