What I give thanks for this holiday weekend:
My almost 4-month sobriety
My wonderful, god so wonderful, husband Steve
My amazingly large, supportive circle of friends
My very patient mother and crazy-in-a-fantastic-way sister
My adorable and loving cat Andy
Abundant food to cook and enjoy
An extremely stable job
A lovely apartment that we have made as cozy and pretty as possible
I try to remind myself of these things not just today, but every day, so that I never again return to stagnation, self-pity or confusion.
Today is good. Life is good. I am grateful.
