Daily gratitude 4-25-16

My OA literature reminded me today that having an attitude of gratitude
is essential to abstinence.

So...I'm going to make a focused effort to do daily gratitude posts!

Today, I am grateful for:

* celebrating T.'s birthday with him yesterday despite everyone's non-cooperation

* seeing a grizzly bear and getting some pics of him near Yellowstone Park. Wow!

* chocolate cake (though it's not on my food plan)

* pizza (see c.c. above)

* a rainy, overcast day - love these sorts of days - my energy is high!

* flowering fruit trees everywhere

* the boss being in a meeting all morning, leaving me time to catch up and to write

* A., for trusting me to share his journey and challenges with me after a long absence

* pay day at the end of this week. It's been a financially challenging month!

* spring

* my sisters
