Just for Today

Not everyone is fortunate enough to get the treatment programs I did. I am so grateful for this.  I am so grateful for NA meetings because I can attend them anywhere (this is not an official promotion for that organization), but I appreciate how the opportunity to share with others and hearing others stories of struggle with addiction has changed my life.  Every day, I am thankful to my Higher Power for the day; clean -sober.  It is a beautiful day today and I plan to enjoy it and appreciate it because I can.  A month and a half ago, I was not grateful for anything.  I have a job, I have a home, I have healthy, productive, happy children.  These are blessings.  Life is a gift; that’s why they call it the present (someone said something like that).  I got up, did my yoga poses with meditation and prayer and mindfulness to be peaceful, calm and positive.  Then I scoured the house; kitchen dishes and counters, mopped the floors, vacuumed, did the laundry, made my bed and worked up a healthy sweat (although my mother would’ve said “horses sweat, ladies perspire :-).  Then a made myself a bubble bath and just relaxed for a while.  Made some of my calls to family far away.  Asked God to bless them all.  Thanked Him for the blessing of my late husband and mother.  Watered the plants and spent some time in the sunshine on my small front steps.  Now I am going to see a friend and then to a meeting where I hope to be of service.  I still haven’t finished setting up this blogsite, so please be patient as I learn to do it.  If you can post here, PLEASE PLEASE DO SO.  TELL ME ABOUT YOUR LIFE, OR YOUR ADDICTION STRUGGLE, OR YOUR RECOVERY -OR HOPE FOR YOUR RECOVERY.  Peace, love and gratitude to you….How can I help?
