Today I am grateful for time with our grandson Leo and our son Sam's help with him yesterday. I am grateful for new opportunities and experiences, and also for the consistency and comfort of familiarity.
When I hit the publish button on this post, it will be post #1500 that has gone from draft, to preview, to publish on Habitual Gratitude.
I wouldn't have guessed at post #15 that I would ever reach this milestone of 1500 posts. A post at a time, a word at a time, anything is possible.
I wouldn't have guessed at age 15 that I would be an alcoholic with long-term sobriety at 51. A day at a time, anything is possible. But at age 15, I did come across a prophetic line that I wrote on a piece of paper and put on the mirror in the bedroom I shared with my sister. That line? "The chains of alcohol are too weak to be felt until they are strong to be broken." In my case, they definitely were.
At 15 days of sobriety, how could I know that a new way of looking at life was starting and it continues, many days later. A day at a time, anything is possible.
Thank you to all of you who read my posts regularly, or just stop by from time to time. Thank you to those who take the time to comment and share your own words. You all inspire and motivate me to continue. Even after 1500 posts, the ideas keep coming. So will the posts.
I will be taking a blog break the next few days though. Happy Holidays to all! Be safe. Be grateful.
