    You all (especially my peeps like dean, dominica, true) mean so very much to me.
    I am very grateful we all have found each other and support each other.
    I hope you have a clean & sober & happy thanksgiving.

    My plans are to take my 2 fur babies and husband to my 1:45 NA meeting and then pick up my mom and go to my older brother & sis in laws for dinner.
    I don't eat turkey so this is for me a little obligatory and I'd rather be home chilling but I isolated so much with my drugs that this is good for me re setting my neuropaths for new thinking and behavior!

    I'm checking out off things like the computer for a couple of days to just rest and re I am writing this today although I get notifications from the site which is good.

    I was thinking we could start a little gratitude thread for today and tomorrow at least...if anyone wants to join in?

    I am grateful for this site and its members
    That I am not in active addiction and that my thoughts are just thoughts that pass
    For my lifestyle I could enjoy if I stay grateful and clean
    For my family and my dogs
    That I didn't load my day up with too many to do's and can slow down
    That I can change the things I don't like about myself

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, @Liola! And to everyone here!

    I am grateful for my amazing wife. We celebrated our 30th anniversary on Monday and I consider myself the luckiest man on the planet. I don't know where I would be without my wife. She's my rock, my anchor, my lover, and my best friend. :)
