Gratitude



TIME FOR SOME WRITTEN GRATITUDE


I am so grateful:


...That yesterday I sought an amend from the administrator of another online recovery community, and ended up realizing it was I who had to make the amend.

...To report that the admin let me simmer ever so gently, almost without me knowing what went down.

...To know that a 'right' motive, honest discourse, and the whispered movement of the spirit of my Higher Power, are all it takes to melt my hardened heart, and heal a rift between two or more people.

...For sandals all sewed up again...cobbler, cobbler!

...For a Gold cross that's real gold, and real cross.

...For Aspirin.

...Modern communication.

...First Grade teacher, Sister Rose Gertrude.
I never since have met a Gertrude, nor been
in the First Grade, nor had as fine a teacher.

...For hormone shot every 84 days.

...For the Cyberknife.

...For my family--wife and our children.

...For blogging and bloggers where EVER you are.

...For my "special" peeps and our love--it works both ways, gang. And I thrive on it, believe me!

...For Night

...For Light

...A great sponsor, sober 30 years, and my age.

...For a new laptop I shall order tomorrow. YIPEEEE!

...For snow, anywhere but here. Send photos!

...For sleep, which is imminent........Thank you for being here.

In LOVE and service,
Sincerely.
Steve E.

"we're going to have to talk."

I am quite curious about some of your entries.

Modern communication is great, but old time communication can be just as good.

Hope our Saturdays are blessed.

Love,
ME!!!

Gracious gratitude, lovely post, dear Steve E!

You know I was thinking, is there any way possible that you could have one of your performances videotaped and brought here to us? I don't think I've seen this on your blog before. I would love to hear you play your violin!

Love your list of things you are grateful for. I need to make one of my own, do I have to be tagged first? nah!

keep smilin!
