Todays Gratitude List

I had a "lot of feelings" about a lot of things today, that I would have drank over, before. I didn't drink today.

Also I'm grateful for AC & safe drinking water & flush toilets, and my cats & I got food.

3. Congrats, and Keep On Keeping On!

Feelings ... man I hated those when I was sober.

I guess that's why I'm not anymore ... but I'll be back. Sometime. For Sure!

I'm still very proud of everyone who pulls it off, you have my utmost respect

And I just saw you posted Bonnie Raitt on another thread, so you've got that going also!

5. I know people groan when people come up with this for a discussion topic.

But where would we be without it - and I realize that I'm pretty lucky. I have my health and so does my dog (who got groomed today) and my cat, I have them, I also have lights and A/C and friends on DU.

6. Hot to day where I live ..91..but,

I also have AC, a computer, a car with AC and enough to eat. My place has two flights of stairs, and I am grateful that I can get up the stairs. I had hip surgery and was disabled for a while, but now I can take long walks in the forest that is a short drive from where I live. I guess being grateful is the only way to go. What else is there to say? (I did forget something) I got to a meeting this morning, and the sharing was very special.
...And about safe drinking water..about 130 years ago in the Chicago area where I live, there was an awful epidemic that caused hundreds of deaths. Why? The drinking water from the lake was not purified. Sometime after that, they started purifying the water in a safe way. Safe, clean drinking water is one of life's necessities that most of us take totally for granted.

7. And while I considered a bottle at the store, I still passed it on by.

I am really in a funk.
I'll change up some meetings this week.
