- Today I’m grateful that I seem to have turned the corner on my head cold and I’m feeling better.
- I’m grateful that I made it to a meeting last night after a 2 week hiatus. It was good to be back in the rooms and to feel the warmth of the fellowship.
- I’m grateful that the sun is shining and the temperatures are cool. I particularly love autumn weather.
Yesterday morning, on the way to school Mr. Grey asked, “Dad, have you ever considered moving to where my cousins live?”
“I don’t know buddy, perhaps. Do you think we should move there?” I asked.
“Live in the same house as them?”
“Don’t you think that would be a few to many people in one house?”
“Well, maybe, but we could live in a house near them.”
It makes me smile that the little man loves his cousins so much. It’s also a pleasure to take him to school in the mornings. Some days there is a little conversation like this one and others it’s a quiet ride — it doesn’t matter which one I get on any given day, I just enjoy having a few minutes with him in the morning.
I’m starting a new series, based on the guidance from this article on Inc. I also must give credit where credit is due, my good friend HD started this recently, and his post today, was the kick in the ass that I needed to get started.
- I’m grateful to be alive today. Every day sober is a gift.
- I’m grateful that I have a good job that gives me flexibility as well as a good pay check.
- I’m grateful to be making positive changes in my life.
Yesterday afternoon, as I was laying down to go to take a much needed afternoon nap, Mrs. TKD texted me asking if I could pickup Mr. Grey from school. Of course, I could and I did, but I would have rather taken a nap. When we got home, I gave Mr. Grey about an hour to blow off steam and then we got to getting his homework done. It want better than expected and we finished by about 4:45. He then went out on his bike and played with his friend up the street.
Mrs. TKD had a few things on her agenda last night, and so Mr. Grey and I had a boys night. While it wasn’t anything grand, we had a great night together. I took him to Chick-Fil-A as requested and he got to hang with some other kids as well as get a chainsaw made of balloons. Interesting choice, but it made him happy. Earlier this week, as a consequence he was forbidden to watch TV or play with electronics. I was a bit worried about what we’d do when we got home, but I found a stack of his books on my bed and we laid on the bed and took turns reading 20 pages at a time to each other. It was wonderful.
