I was thinking about him wondering how he was doing however did not want to intrude. This is such good news to read first thing in the morning! Thank you for sharing!

Gratitude List.....I really need to make one....RIGHT NOW too....
1. Grateful to be clean and for my recovery
2. Grateful for my family
3. Grateful that my business is still open and thriving (now that I'm not spending all of my damn $$ on pills and subs)
4. I'm grateful that I have a home with electricity, water, cable, ALL things I think we totally take for granted!!!!
5. Totally grateful my house (and NONE of my properties) flooded here in Louisiana as did many of my friends.
6. I'm grateful I have the ability to attend a yoga class every day ( I live by this now)
7. I'm grateful there's a meeting available for me every day of the week!
8. I'm grateful that I'm not using.....today!
This was a good idea b/c I need to be reminded that things are NOT as bad I as I make them in my head!!!! I can overthink ANYTHING!!!!
I get the overthinking!! It creates so much chaos in my head as i cant put anything in proper order or even decide if it is mine to think about.
We are seeing pictures of the flooding and it is so devastating. I cant even begin to fathom the reality of it all. I am grateful you are safe~
Please dont ever think you would intrude by asking me anything. There have been some struggles recently but i am happy to report he is back on track. This one has been hard for me and at the same time it makes my journey even more important. If only love, hugs and kisses could make it all better~
Gratitude has always been my favorite topic by far in any type of a recovery setting! I'm grateful for my recovery because without it I would have nothing. I'm grateful for God and everything he has helped me through. I'm grateful for my church family. I'm grateful for my husband (of 9 days!!!) I'm grateful for all of our children, our home, cars to drive. Im grateful for my job and financial stability. I'm grateful for my peace of mind. I'm grateful for extended family. I'm grateful for this forum for helping me through my methadone withdrawal after 8.5 years on it and off of heroin. I'm grateful for my support system. I'm grateful for the amazing time we had on our honeymoon to the Bahamas and for the beautiful weather we had on our cruise. I'm grateful for so much...the beauty in the world, the flowers I can stop and smell, I'm even grateful for the rain. Lol. And I think it's worth saying I'm also grateful for my addiction because the same as my recovery...I wouldn't be who I am today without having been who I was yesterday.
Gratitude List...hmm, what am I grateful for??? I am grateful that I decided NOT to fill my prescription for Norco 47 days ago. I am grateful for my 56 days that I have pill free and that I no longer have to worry about running out, counting and trying to figure out how long I can make them last (but never making them last that long). I am grateful for my 1 year old baby that gives me the strength to continue to be clean, and shows me what it is like to live again. I am grateful that I decided to go to my first recovery group meeting this past Saturday! I am grateful that I have kept my job through all this, and that I have a home to live in and food to fill my belly, and most of all, right this second, I am glad I can still see the computer screen and type this through my tears!
Dear Sarah, thank you! I remember when you first posted about the day, you know. Tears were streaming down my face. I sent up prayers for him, you, your daughter. I am so very happy to hear he is walking you down the aisle, that is a blessing.
Take care my friend
I am very grateful for you coming into my life~
Thank you dear Sarah, you just made my entire week!!!!
I can't wait to see your dress! You in it! giggle
I have been missing for awhile, due to a new mission I have been on.
So Grateful that God gave me a second chance to live here on earth a bit longer. By giving my Life back to my Lord, I now am able to understand and get through my Hard/Heartache times that I had.
I am so grateful to have a wonderful Husband and still have my moms dog moose and 2 cats. Own all our Beautiful property too. I am so Grateful to have met some Beautiful Friends on this site, who have walked me through all of this since 2012. Grateful for SO much more, as the list can go on & on, but mostly to be alive and doing the Lords work today.
Bless ALL of YOU!!
PS..as I mentioned on the phone, I will always remember your Wedding Anniversary date because it is 4 days away from ours and You are getting married on my Clean date, 4 yrs later. Wish WE can ALL meet there. Hugs!
Wishing You & Hub all the best! Yahooooo!!!!
