believe that we in Alcoholics Anonymous are fortunate in that
we are constantly reminded of the need to be grateful and
of how important gratitude is to our sobriety. I am truly
grateful for the sobriety God has given me through the A.A.
program and am glad I can give back what was given to me freely.
I am grateful not only for sobriety, but for the quality of
life my sobriety has brought. God has been gracious enough
to give me sober days and a life blessed with peace and contentment,
as well as the ability to give and receive love, and the opportunity
to serve others--in our Fellowship, my family and my community.
For all of this, I have "a full and thankful heart."
