Gratitude (da count)



OK, I'm grateful for beautiful naked women. I'm grateful I'm sober. I'm grateful for the challenges God puts before me. They make me stronger. I'm grateful for my many talents, all God's gifts for me to share with you all and the world. I'm grateful for my strength AND for my weaknesses. They make me human. I'm grateful that I can pray for help with my weaknesses and Lo and Behold help will come! I'm grateful to you, my bloggy peeps, for reading and commenting. Sometimes you bitch slap me because sometimes I need it. I'm grateful for that too. I'm grateful for your support and head pats when I need those too. I'm grateful to my readers who don't comment as well. I know you're there and it's comforting that someone cares enough to look. Things are going really REALLY good right now in so many ways. All of these things flow from being sober and looking outwards rather than in. I'm grateful I can share my journey with you. That's my count for this Friday.

Good times gone but you missed them
What's gone wrong in your system
Things they bounce just like a spaulding
What'd you think you miss your calling
It's so free this kind of feeling
It's like life it's so appealing
When you got so much to say
It's called gratitude
Good times gone but you feed it
Hate's grown strong you feel you need it
Just one thing do you know
What you think that the world owes you
What's gonna set you free
Look inside and you'll see
When you got so much to say
It's called gratitude
-The Beastie Boys

When things are not good or great... counting it all helps a lot. Have a good weekend. Cheers!

I envy you and the strenght you put into your action... I'm jealous not being strong enough right now to take the path you did... I'm glad for you that you choose your health and well being over the temptation of forgetting the emotions we are going through... Could it be what I fear... Feeling... really, straight and clean?? Oh, yes... it could...
