Giving Thanks

I don't necessarily have a whole lot to say about Thanksgiving yesterday...D had to work (in exchange for having Christmas off), so I spent the day at my two family dinners, and today we are seeing D's family.  I ate far too much and enjoyed not thinking about school.  But the one thing I do have to say about Thanksgiving is that I have a couple of things in particular that I am grateful for this year.  I am thankful for D's recovery, frustrating though it may often be, and for the past two months of sobriety that have really thrown light onto what our relationship is working to become.  I am also thankful for the fact that I am finally beginning to reach a point of not worrying constantly about things outside myself, to a point where I can (at least for a couple of days) take things one day at a time.  I am thankful that yesterday I did not once concern myself with what D was doing, or how things were going, or what was going to happen on Monday, but instead just sat back and enjoyed myself.

those are all wonderful things for which to be thankful. Every one of them is a success. I wish many more mercies along your way.
