Twelve Things I Am Grateful for on the 12th

It’s November! The month of thanksgiving, when we count our blessings.

As I’ve done for years, I’m thinking of things I’m grateful for each day of this month. I’m posting them on my private Facebook profile. Here are my gratitude lists for the first twelve days of November.

1. Today I am grateful for
~ Sunshine
~ Cool temperatures
~ Fall colors
~ Good books
~ Text messages from my love

2. Today I am thankful for
~ Waking up to romantic texts
~ Being bought with a price

4. Today I am grateful for

~ An empty nest
~ Children adulting well
~ Popsicles. Even though Ron Duncan ate them all while I was out of town caring for our ill damsel and ministering to hurting people and doing all those hard things like driving Maggie around town for a week and I would have really liked to have a red popsicle when I got home from such a tiring trip only to find the freezer empty because he ate them all and didn’t bother to go to the store to buy me a new box so I would have popsicles when I got home.

8. Today I am grateful that there is a solution to addiction.

I’m grateful for all my friends who not only live beautiful lives free from drug and alcohol addiction but who also help others find the solution. I love you all. You are blessings in my life. You have encouraged me when I was going through hard things.

For those who want to stop using or drinking, there really is a way to stop. The first step is admitting you are powerless and your life has become unmanageable.

design-89The Accident happened on August 12, 2013. Because of the late time and remote location, they were declared dead 8/13/13. The first ten months I found myself depressed in the days leading up to the 12th. Then, in the eleventh month July of 2014, I decided to choose gratitude. I wrote my first list of Twelve Things I’m Grateful for on the 12th. I’ve written a monthly gratitude post ever since.<<<<<<<<<<<<<
