November - Gratitude Month

I just read over at http://www.recoveryuniverse.com/ that November is accepted by AA members worldwide as Gratitude Month. I didn't know that.

Actually I haven't really thought about gratitude too much this past year. But as time has gone on I am starting to realize that I have a lot to be grateful for. So in the spirit of Gratitude Month I am grateful for the following:

Being in recovery
My wife and son
My parents, sisters and brother
My counselor
My dog
The fact that I am alive and mostly healthy
I have a decent job
I live in the US
I live in a middleclass neighborhood

I am sure there is more I should be grateful for, but unfortunately I am still in midst of healing. It will be interesting to read back on this next November (god willing). I will be grateful if I can do that!
