Gratitude List 17/05/2019: via a swipe right

Gratitude List 17/05/2019

Four years ago today, I met via a ‘swipe right’ and some very dodgy chat up lines, my girlfriend.

Today I am grateful that she is still with me. To begin with, I gave her lots and lots of reasons for her not to be.

Today I am grateful the timing was just about right. It was meant to be.

Today I am grateful she supported me in my journey back to the rooms. She took me to the doorstep that first evening.

Today I am grateful for the amazing role model she is to my children. Their loving relationship is a true blessing.

Today I am grateful for the role model she is to me. I have learnt so much from her maturity.

Today I am grateful for how supportive she is of the effort and time I need to put into my recovery.

Today I am grateful she understands that my recovery must come first.

Today I am grateful we have become best friends.

Today I am grateful for how our relationship has grown in strength and love.

Today I am grateful for Unity, Recovery and Service. Without them I can say with a degree of certainty that either (a) our relationship would’ve ended, or (b) I would be pulling this angel through the wringer with me.
