Today I had a great pleasure to be able to attend the yearly Gratitude Breakfast sponsored by the district area group of Alcoholics Anonymous. I have never gone before and let me tell you, it was astounding! I mean what else can be said about 600+ sober drunks in one room - laughing and hugging like we had no worries in the world? Breathe taking! Empowering, fulfilling, gratifying? I don't even have enough words to describe this accurately at all!
So, I am filled with joy and gratitude. This breakfast with 600+ sober people really made me feel safe and at home; nowhere else I feel this way. I am so very grateful for all the people in the AA fellowship, they have saved my life!
November is the month of gratitude!
As I mentioned in my last post Month of Gratitude, here is my list for the past week:
Day 2: I am grateful for not sleeping this beautiful Saturday away because I am hungover.
Day: 3 - I am grateful to be able to spend fun time with my family instead of avoiding them.
Day 4: I am grateful for all the people in my sober network who help me along on my sober journey every single day.
Day 5: I am grateful for being able to cuddle on the couch with my son tonight.
Day 6: I am grateful for the awesome people in the sober blogosphere.
Day 7: I am grateful for having the courage today to speak up for myself.
Day 8: I am grateful for my day off, by myself, for myself and sober.
Day 9: I am grateful for my family and friends who made date night possible.
Day 10: I am grateful for an amazing sober birthday spent with some amazing sober people.
What are you grateful for?
