IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

My life would suck without you. ~Kelly, Gottwald, Martin

Today I am grateful…

  • that someone dear to me referred to me as their BFF
  • that last night God gave me the words to say when I was becoming frustrated with someone
  • that if I sit in the rooms of AA for a while, work the steps a few times and work with others—God does for me what I couldn’t do for myself
  • for the sounds of rustling wind and leaves blowing against the back glass door
  • that I have all I need for today…
  • that Mary Christine is one year older today

Life is a process, and we are progressing beautifully. We are no longer abusing our bodies and minds with drugs. We are taking special time, daily, to look for guidance. We are working the Steps of the program, better and better as the abstinent days add up. We are free from past behaviors. And we can be free from our negative attitudes too.
Making a decision to look for the good in our experiences and in our friends and acquaintances frees us from so much frustration. It ushers in happiness, no only for us but for the others we are treating agreeably. Happiness is a byproduct of living the right kind of life. ~Each Day a New Beginning

Yeah, I like that first quote too. Is it from the Bible?

I like not saying anything when I become frustrated. Somehow it works out better for me if I just keep quiet.

I think that the blogworld would suck without you.

Your daily postings bring a continuity to the start of my day. Happiness is a byproduct, indeed.

Namaste

Thanks for the post.
One of the great things about this time of the year is that people, in general, and if they want to be, can be incredibly positive, generous, and grateful.
