Remnants of My Desk Clean Out

Please list three things that you are thankful for this year:

1. My unconditionally accepting partner.

2. Visit with my sister for the first time since her sobriety.

3. Good job with health insurance and benefits.

Please keep this to remind yourself each day of how much we have to be thankful for.

The above was written Thanksgiving 2002 or 2003 when we had dinner at my in-law's home. Playing into my typical "be thankful" sort of attitude thing, I had printed off little pieces of paper for each person to fill out just prior to dinner and then we were going to go around the table and each of us read our own at dinner time. And this was my list. I just found it today while going through an extensive desk clean out. I think I'll keep the little piece of paper. It's a good reminder.

Sometimes finding those notes we left ourselves ages ago brings us back to a reality that we had forgotten.

Yes, I recommend tacking it to your bulletin board or taping it to your wall if you don't have a bulletin board. Very good reminder!

Very interesting find! Keep it for sure. And don't stop making those lists.

This is such a great note. You had an attitude of gratitude even back then :)

That is a great find, and really, if you were to write that list again today I don't think it would be that different!
