Thursday Thirteen #39: Things I'm thankful for

We celebrate Thanksgiving in November. On Facebook, there's an idea going around to express something we're thankful for each day during November. I think it's a great idea, one I'd like to try every week. I'll start with the basics.

1. I am grateful for God's love. He is always there, always loving and caring for me. No matter how bad things get, God is with me.

2. I am grateful for TB, for his loving and supportive presence in my life. He is a true blessing. To have the deep love of one during a lifetime is a blessing. For it to happen twice is a true miracle.

3. I am grateful for the kids, Kristin, Heidi, Bill, Linda and Michele. They are blessings in my life too. I love them and I know they love me.

4. I am grateful for my grandkids Nikolas, Tomas, Taylor, Ryan and Brandon.

5. I am grateful for my wonderful friends. Their love and support means more to me than I could ever express to them.

6. I am grateful for my brother, the one other person who understands what it was like.

7. I am grateful for my cousins and other members of my family.

8. I am grateful for my pastor and my church family.

9. I am grateful for my therapist, who recognized I was at risk.

10. I am grateful for ACOA and its meetings and members because they help me identify my issues and understand them better.

11. I am grateful for the recovery books because they help me figure out how to make changes so that I can get better again

12. I am grateful for the safety I felt at the hospital

13. I am grateful for my cats because I feel so much better when I can hold them and pet them. They seem to know when I need a soft furball to cuddle
