Some days are better than others; some days are an effort to get through still…I won’t lie; but I have plenty to be thankful for this season; and I am thankful; because I know where I’ve been.
I am thankful that I am able to still be alive, and going where I am going in life.
I’m thankful to be sober; and to finally feel free of that alcoholic burden…although I know it is, and will continue to be; a daily choice that I will have to make. 8 months sober today…..and counting.
I am thankful for my children, and that we are forming working, healthy relationships again. I am thankful for their father and his wife for doing for them, what I could not do…I’m grateful that they are safe and happy.
I am thankful for my relationship with T, even though it is not always easy.
I am thankful for my family and true friends; who have always believed in my strengths, and helped me to find them, when I could not.
I am grateful that I can still see the light, in a world full of chaos…and in myself.
I’m grateful that I chose to stand up and live my life the way it was meant to be lived; instead of running myself into the ground like I’ve always done in the past.
So many other little things too, that I am thankful for…
I remember every day that I am blessed to have this life.
For so long I took it for granted; and I’m glad that I continue to change for the better now…because it’s the way it should be.
I hope wherever you are, that your Thanksgiving day was filled with peace and thanks…and that your holiday season will be too.
It’s amazing how remembering what we DO have in our lives; makes the value of it so much more, on a whole. The things we don’t have; seem somewhat trivial and unimportant…when you consider your life TODAY.
