It has been a good couple of days and I have a lot to be grateful for.  There are the obvious things; my wife, my sobriety, my family (both AA and normal).  Then there are the not so obvious or little things that happen from time to time.  Things like spending time with my kids and grandkids and not thinking about when or how I can find or sneak a drink.  Also there is the complete lack of stress at home when my wife and I have to go separate ways from time to time.  Normally this would have been met with agitation and apprehension from my wife.  She knew I would be more than likely trying to find a way to drink.  One of the things we talked about in our meeting before the meeting, was freedom and just exactly how are things worse with out drinking.  Having only 79 days sober at this point, I honestly said I can’t think of a single thing that is worse since I am not drinking.  But Joe said, what about Not getting a DUI this weekend or worrying about the cop behind you.  That made me think.  My contribution was that my wife hasn’t yelled or thrown anything in almost 3 months!  That is progress if ever there was any.  I am most definitely grateful for that!

God Bless
