More gratitude

I tell you, you can speak to Me as you would speak with best friend. June 22 Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 60
I did not need to be told nor to read the above. I have always done that, but it was rather a confirmation of practice to read this.
.Not the best of days, not the worst of days. I need to process and then write. Meanwhile I am leaning on gratitude - big time. But them I am always grateful.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD loving schnauzer. I almost revoked her dog card tonight. She did not know what to do with the bone from last nights porterhouse. She finally figured it out, but I sure got a lot of laughter and joy out of watching her.
  • My Sponsor whom I visited with today.
  • Restraint of tongue when my endocrinologist pissed me off today. (I really need to change, but he is a good Dr.)
  • Joy of watching Daave on the Family Feud at Lambda on Saturday Night fund raiser for Roundup.
  • Doug F. not being seriously injured in the broadside of his pickup. (Truck total loss)
  • Really live one day at a time. I usually do, but sometimes I start projecting outcomes etc. But today I can recognize this before I have gone totally bonkers.
  • Not being a newcomer, but sometimes thinking like one.
  • My peeps
  • All y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

We can all be newcomers. Nothing wrong with that. Beats being self appointed AA royalty!!!

Great list. I would have laughed at Mamie too. I don't give regular bones but buy the huge ones that are roasted and cost about $5 a piece. The dogs love to munch and I like to hear them chewing away.

Hiya Zane! Have a great week!

Do you give Mamie bones? My girls would love one but I am always afraid they will splinter.

I am always glad to read a post from you, Zane.

Leaning on gratitude is a fabulous gift of our program. It works every time.

Love and prayers,
Prayer Girl

I love reading your blog, because I love reading CWG...and don't. lol Every time though, I think..I'm getting those books out again!!

I always give our dogs bones too, and they think they've died and gone to dog heaven.

You always speak to me, Zane. Thank you so much...I've been "thinking like one" too sometimes lately...

Hope you're enjoying your summer...
