Gratitude

Every year in Al-anon we have one meeting that is called a gratitude hour. You all go around and say 5 things you are grateful for. I think it's a really cool idea and it really helps you remember what you have to be grateful for.

1) I am grateful for my son. He is the most wonderful person I have ever met and he makes me laugh out loud at least once every day. He is so smart and funny and I can't wait to see the little person he becomes.

2) I am grateful for my family's health. No one is sick this year (aside from the normal colds, thank you daycare) and that is truly something to be grateful for.

3) I am grateful that I have a job that I like that allows me to pay my bills and still have a little left over to go out to eat with some great AA and Al-anon friends every Friday night.

4) I am grateful for the program. Without that I'm not sure where my lie would be but it certainly wouldn't be where it is today.

5) I am grateful for my husband's continued sobriety.

So... what are your five things?
